Now you can see what I look like!biggrin

Anyways I'm fundraising for this bike ride event in Napa to raise money for the ADA (American Diabetes Association) in their fight against Diabetes. I have type 2 and it sucks sometimes. For example, I don't have the strength to go several hours of fishing like I used to bleh

Please visit http://main.diabetes.org/goto/alzn

and perhaps make a donation. Thanks
aww

type to is where you must watch what you eat, your intake is what regulates the sugar. type 1 is where you take insulan shots, i am border line type 2 diabetic myself, i am hypoglycemic (i know i am messing the spelling up big time) anyways i am highy hypoglycemic, my mother is type 1 since birth and her father my grandfather is type 1 as well, he got his after a mild stroke at age 52. so i really need to watch my diet, and well my health in general. and same goes for everyone, i know of a few people heathy as a horse, and then something happens they get really sick have a mild stroke or heart attack, then they have diabetes, and sometimes i have heard that the didnt know until it was to late. if someone goes into insulan shock man it is not good.

great cause throwinmetal.

hello Brian,

thanks for your thoughts. Being hypoglycemic is risky. I would feel jittery, faint, cold, and shaking. When I wake up really early to go fishing, I will feel this way by 9am if I don't eat something. I will occasionally get that way but I'm mostly over-sugared up (hyperglycemic). Medication will get me hypoglycemic so I do carry glucose tablets with me or in my car. Or a bagel will do.

One positive thing perhaps is that most people, once they get diagnosed, they tend to live a more healthy lifestyle. They exercise more and eat better. At one point I lost 20 lbs and could go all out on the soccer field like my high school days.

Oh I forgot to say that I will be riding for my company team (Bio-Rad) and doing the entry-level 10 miles. :)
