    The best we can do is keep our A1c very close to correlating to the elusive euglycemic range, and try to avoid accidental hypoglycemic disasters along the way. Easier said than done, don’t you think?

    Normal is just a setting on a dryer!

    One of the biggest challenges facing diabetes research is a lack of a “normal” and/or base line number(s). What is the normal fuction of beta cells? How is sugar, glucose, processed from the moment it hits our lips to a final location in the body. Is it the lips to the hips? There is still so much that needs to be done. We need to continue to press on. Thanks for the info.

    I found this article very interesting, and love the poem. In all the time i’ve been dealing with my mother-in-law’s type II, i’ve have never heard of this term “euglycemia”. thanks for the info.

    After my doctor informed me that in my last blood test the HAIC was 6.8 I thought this is it. I was overweight and my eating habits were very bad. He suggested me to try the Smart for Life cookie diet and I decided to give it a try. I lost 34 pounds in 4 months and they been off for more than a year. My last HA1c was 5.8. I learned how to eat 6 small meals a day, portion control and better food choices. I am never hungry and fell in control. It is an outstanding choice to loose weight SAFELY and effectively and it will help normalize blood glucose levels. Go to

    I agree, nice picture!

    Certainly looks more abstract than my imagination of euglycaemia at

    …makes my lolly pic pale in comparison to yours… :(
