KM60 continue inspire low(er) carb eating plan. Help beta cells live longer? Yes/no/maybe, anyway feel better–no suddenly ravenous, less jittery. Less reactive hypoglycemia? Ate meat. Children amazed, dog sad. Currently very confused vegan/paleo/middle-path

These cookies. Just add D-neighbor who bakes, does carbs math (10-11g CHO/cookie), decorates bakery box w. understated panda sticker, shares

Don't for get the salt

Don’t forget the fancy salt

This book for elementary/middle-grades. Bubs not able stop read, except for report to family various heartbreaking things happen. (<–Not diabetes)

If crave diabetes-related heart bruise/throat lump, this post re first time middle school: Elementary school smelled like bubble gum and unicorns. The hallways were lined with rainbows and shiny happy toothless faces and the kids thought Charlie was cool and brave…

We really love our D-bag

Dexcom goes in front little zip pouch. If your Dex and phone vibrate at the same time, it’s like a very irritating massage.

Ultimate D-bag for gender-neutral d-bags. Dexcom lands right over heart, where belong. Also avoid look like Moonrise Kingdom re-enactor (previous D-bag = wicker creel)

This TCOYD conference, Worcester, Massachusetts. $15 (fifteen!)

This short film/TED re synesthesia. Explain why A1c wreak emotional havoc beyond just-a-number. 6.3 tastes like dirty public toilet

1. padded pocket for phone; 2. interior pocket which holds a spare meter/batteries/strips; 3. roomy main compartment for your Frio of insulin and zip-pouch of skittles, frosting, and a glucagon kit; 4. zippered mesh pocket for all of the rarely used but must-carry things: pee strips, kachunkers, cartridges, lithium batteries in a Ziploc with a penny screwdriver...

  1. you. ate. meat. what is happening over there?! (I eat meat – so this was not meant to come across as an accusation of betrayal of any herbivore pinky-swear promise)

  2. I am loving that bag! I understand your guilt over the meat. About a year and a half ago my husband and I decided to go vegetarian but I had anemia and it it seemed no amount of leafy greens and legumes were bringing up my hemoglobin levels. Even after my hysterectomy my hemoglobin hung around 8.6 (supposed to be at least 12). I made the choice to start eating meat again and now have a lovely 14.3 hemoglobin a year later. So, totally different reasons for me. I still refuse to buy ground beef though and prefer to use morningstar griller crumbles.

  3. You don’t normally eat meat?? I had no idea. Now I understand why 60 carbs or less seems crazy. I am so glad I am not a vegetarian diabetic. I don’t know how they do it.
