Re: Christmas gift.

Wonderful Bob!  You are a very talented man. Hope to see more of your work.




Diagnosed as type 2 in 2005 with an A1c of 9.1

Started with metformin and a low dose of an ARB for blood pressure. Added a sulfonylurea (a med that helps my pancreas produce my own insulin) Also a low dose of Crestor to lower my cholesterol.
After 7 years I could no longer tolerate metformin so am doing my best to keep control with a max dose of the sulfonylurea and lots of walking, some swimming.

Re: Christmas gift.

Bob--Is that an imaginary place, or have you been there in person?
