    Great Idear!
    Although at first the needles look HUGE, they rarely hurt. Also your mum wont have to get up in the night because of basel ( they will tell you this at hospital). Of ccourse if you feel high/low you will have to do a BG level test.

    Hi,

    I thought I'd just introduce myself - I am Lovelylivpet's mum. Just keeping an eye on my daughter's online activities, which will probably embarrass her, but there you go :lol: !

    Hi Megan,
    Good HB1C, mines high at 8.5 but planning to get it down :) . Are your parents (or you) strict about diabetes. Stuff like what you eat or do you just sort of get on with it?
