      Hi Justpatti. The community lifetime points is a way for new members to see who is active in the community and connect with others.
      The dLife moderators sometimes reach out to the top members to see if they would like to be dLife Ambassadors and help moderate the forum.
      We also send free dLife merchandise from time to time to those who have been active in our community as well. =)

      I understand so very well how pain can cause depression and with me even irritability and that can't get out of control when you have children can it? I am curious if you are getting enough calcium. I remember when my children were small I saved all the milk for them, but women need it too. I know if there are things that are missing from you diet you can get muscle cramps. I don't know why but I think of potassium out of my mind. If you feel you could use an antidepressant or therapy don't...

It's not routine however mine was very low, he also suggested magnesium supliments and tonic water. Since my vitamin d is up i have noticed a difference and the magnesium does wonders.

But, your son would want you to take care of yourself, and live life the way he did. He risked his life so you and I could have a better one. He did what he loved, and his life had meaning! Do not allow his death to be for not.

      d-Life TV also comes on the retired living cable channel on Sat and Sun mornings around 9 am CST (cable station 261) in my area. These shows are re-runs but I enjoy watching them because I always find something that I missed the first time. Also if I a miss a show on Sun afternoon I can catch it later on this channel.

      Thank you for your comment and so glad that you find deep meaning in dLife. TV can tell stories that make people feel things they may not ordinarily feel or want to feel and that is what we try to do at dLife. I was watching a documentary about when Magic Johnson got AIDS and he said something profound and I believe sincere, "God gave it to me because he knew I was strong enough to help others". And he immediately went to work doing just that.

      I agree with Zeneida, Jo. Although I wasn't a primary caregiver for my late father, he also suffered from a number of diabetes-related issues late in life but had his own ideas about diet and exercise. It was pretty frustrating for those who loved him, but I agree with your thoughts on balancing our feelings with those of the person with diabetes. Your mom is lucky you are so involved.

      Jo, thank you for sharing your thoughts and your emotions. I do feel empathy for you. I was one of the caregivers of my father who had dementia and diabetes. My sister and I had to give permission for the amputation of his leg. That was one of the hardest things I ever had to do in my life but there was no choice. There were really rough times, but you know as I do that we have to take it one day at a time. Wish there was more doctors out there that specialized in geriatric care. I feel so much...

We diabetics understand what a huge effort this is for you all to make... and now you are getting a flavor for what it is like for us. It really touches me to think you would go to such ends to understand. Good luck. And oh... those Arizona Iced Teas... some things we discover we just can't accomodate anymore....

      There were so many things that I can speak on.
      1. Arizona tea -when I was beginning this journey and my insulin pump -I gave myself insulin to cover that can and dropped really low. I learned quickly how liquid carbs may not necessarily stick with the body in terms of insulin (calories different story).

      Well said Lynn! I had diabetes for only 3 months when I was pregnant, but that small amount of time gave me an inkling of an understanding of what it must be like to live with diabetes every single day. I have changed my eating habits since my gestational diagnosis in hopes to avoid type 2 in the future. And I still test my blood sugar to make sure it's in normal range from time to time. Glad dLife is doing this.

      Lovely numbers, Lynn. I would not even call 108 a "spike"! lol. Those are about as lovely and LEVEL as they get! Chasing the apple with the cheese might have prolonged the blood sugar effect a little (if you really want to try to read something into that. lol). Just a thought. The "translation" part can be the tricky part! You might eat the exact same things tomorrow in exactly the same quantities at exactly the same times, and your blood sugars would be completely different... depending on your...

      Hi LC and Jo. Thanks for reading my post and leaving comments! As I've continued to test I've noticed that I seem to run pretty low in general. I don't know if it's because of exercise, or because I was eating too few carbs, or if I tend to test more often when I start to feel low. I wish I had enough test strips to test before and after every single meal this week to get a more accurate picture, but this has definitely been an interesting (and eye-opening!) experiment.
      March 13, 2012 4:23 PM CDT
      Hi Jo, Erin, LC,
      Interesting experiment here...
      I think it important to remember that 68 or 70 mg/dl is not "low" blood glucose. Experts believe that a normal blood glucose reading w/o any insulin resistance is about 70, so I wouldn't get too concerned about readings in this range, in fact I'd be delighted.
      Erin, your comment about the need for treatment below 70 is correct only if you are taking oral meds (especially the sulfonylureas) or insulin. W/o drug interference, we all...

There are so many people who do not have the proper resources to manage their diabetes. I feel some comfort in knowing that dLife.com and dLifeTV are getting folks some valuable information that may help them.
