Walk for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation

On October 28 I will be walking in the Walk to Cure Diabetes event benefiting the Mid-Jersey Chapter of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

My personal fund raising goal is $1000. I would appreciate any support that you could give me for this very worthwhile cause.

Since there are more than 18 million Americans affected by diabetes, I believe that my work with JDRF is important and well worth the effort. I am particularly proud of the fact that JDRF has provided more funding for diabetes research than any other non-governmental agency in the world.

Please visit my Walk Web page if you would like to donate online or see how close I am to reaching my personal goal:

Thank you for considering this request for your support. If you have any questions about the Walk to Cure Diabetes, or the work of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, please do not hesitate to call me.

Under control

I am feeling pretty good about myself. I have made a concerted effort to keep my BG under control and I am having success. I have been using the excellent tools at SugarStats.com to track my BG and insulin dosage. You can see the graph below.blood glucose graph

Not bad. My goal is to get the average to about 100. My insulin dosage has gone up though. I was average about 12 units a day of Novolog and now I am just over 18 per day. Using both of these graphs I get to see a direct correlation between insulin dosage and blood glucose.

Amy Tenderich marks the four year anniversary of her LADA diagnosis. In just two weeks I will “celebrate” one year with this disease. The time want fast. I want to thank Amy for her writing about her experiences and look forward to another four years of the Diabetes Mine. Your writings have been informative and have helped many cope with a challenging disease.
