Ohh yes!!

It sounds so promising! But I’m still waiting over here!

Being a type 1 diabetic I got really excited too, but that wasn’t really a cure was it? It was a temporary fix, like a month long thing before you have to get it again. After awhile your (my? haha) immune system would begin destroying the stem cells just like the original pancreatic cells. :( It still sounds so promising tho!

I haven’t necessarily heard that. But I still think it’s the first step in the right direction!
This stem cell breakthrough will open up so many roads to a cure for diabetes and other diseases too!

I’m tired of my disease being a punchline. Feel free to think I’m being too serious, but it’s a big deal.

Make him watch the Godzilla snickers commercial?

You’re not you when you’re low… haha

honestly talk to him about it because I become completely irrational when i am low as well.. its just something that we deal with and he needs to learn to understand.

Anonymous said: Why BG?

If i am understanding your question correctly I use bg because it stands for Blood Glucose. 

Some people use BS for blood sugar but that also stands for something quite different so to alleviate confusion I use BG

If this was not the answer to your question please be more specific.

I think that no one else understands how much I was afraid, than other diabetics and families. (I have T1D)

That can be really scary.. definitely been there.. leaving it at the dance studio.. school.. dance competitions.

My endocrinologist gave me a free one touch meter to keep at my apartment incase something goes wrong like leaving it somewhere or even if it malfunctions! Maybe give your doctor a call!
