    Amy, you are a fantastic blogger and I love reading here on your wonderful site. I never dreamed that anyone would write such a fantastic blog about little old me. I am trying to reach out and inspire other diabetics to take good care of themselves and live long, healthy lives. You have helped me achieve that goal. Six copies of my book have beeen sold since this blog appeared. That is twice as many as were sold on any prior date. Thanks so very much!!

    P.S I appreciate seeing you on

    I have met many people with diabetes diagnoised in the days when you had to go to the hospital to have a vial drawn and they called a week later with the results. Some have had every complication known and others are complication free. I must believe base line genes play a part. but. Kudos Richard!

    Thanks for featuring Richard! He is such an inspiration to all of us.

    Reading the c-peptide comment at the end renewed my drive to “find me some c-peptide”. Please!!!

    My Mom has urological problems, and I help with getting her urology supplies like latex gloves, catheter holders, and other medical supplies. A nurse comes to the house to deliver and set up an apogee pvc catheter for her .

    Before the nurse leaves, I always ask how to help with cleaning Mom’s skin and catheter to ensure that the she receives quality care at all times.

    This website has been a big help with information. Thanks for sharing! Tom Garrand, Manteca, California.

    I started my medical career in the 1980s and well-remember the realization back then that few type 1s lived past 55. I am overjoyed to see how much better it is now.
