It's almost World Diabetes day and time for the Big blue test time again.
Exercise is good for you. You know that. But did you know that the average Big Blue Tester has seen their blood glucose level drop 20% after 14-20 minutes of exercise?
And if that isn’t enough reason to get active, every time you enter a Big Blue Test you help us get one step closer to our goal of 20,000 entries. If we hit our goal, the program sponsor will donate $100,000 to organizations that provide life-saving supplies and services to people with diabetes in need
This year you can do more than one test.
Remember exercise can be anything active , walking, gardening, swimming, chair exercises, aerobics, running, climbing stairs, skipping...........
Those benefiting are impoverished/under served communities in the US (it was started by a US forum; horrific that there are so many in that country without good access to health care ) and (last year) the International charities were based in Ecuador and Haiti.

Can't believe a year has nearly passed since the last World Diabetes Day
