    This was great to read. I especially appreciated breaking down that one hour of high blood sugar into what percent of your day it is. That made me feel a lot better about those moments. Thanks!

    Chris — great post. I especially appreciate your advice on “not getting too worked up over a high blood sugar.” Its all just information. Take it and use it to help you make adjustments in your diabetes management, and keep going!

    Great post! Sorry you couldn’t make it to Orlando!!

    Hello Crhis,

    Although I don’[t have diabetes, as a Dietitian, I am always in contact with people with the condition since I teach about overweight and the prevention or managing of diabetes. It is posts like this that teach me how to handle certain aspects of the disease when I talk to my clients.

    Thank you for making this type of information available to us. I wish you the best.

    I feel guilty when I eat a lot. My mother says that could cause diabetes. I try to exercise at least 40 minutes everyday but the problem is that I eat too much and am overweight. I will get myself tested for diabetes as soon as possible. Many family members suffer from this terrible disease. Thanks for educating the public about diabetes.

    I really appreciated your tip about not stressing over one high reading. It is true. I realized the same thing eventually and wish I wouldn’t have wasted so much precious time in the past freaking out over high blood sugar episodes. Now I just take action quickly and push worry out of my head. Nice post :)
