Lots of Little Housekeeping Improvements on Blood Sugar 101

Pages changed: All

It is now more than five years since the original version of Blood Sugar 101 was posted on the old Geocities web site.

Over all this time I've been adding new information to the site every few weeks as new research accumulates. Not surprisingly, as the site has grown to its current size of over 90,000 words, little text errors and formatting mistakes have crept in. In addition, quite a few links have gone dead.

So over this past week I've started going through the site and cleaning it up. You may notice small changes here and there, but mostly the changes are cosmetic.

If you happen to notice something that needs to be fixed while reading the site, just drop me a line using the email associated with this blog profile. Thanks!

It has struck me that using your information many of us would be able to speak at our clubs, churches, organisations etc. and make a 15 minute presentation. The manner in which I would be tempted to do it would be a BG graph similar to a time line.

1 This is what a normal person experiences

2 note the phase 1, phase two insulin.

3. This is how a pre-diabetic's BGs go, notice no 1st phase. Hence your doc won't catch you condition with a FBC

4 Here are some of the BGs which lead to damage and complications, mentioning everthing from very highs to spending long periods over 100, citing a few of the studies you mention

5 Here are some of the meds you will be offered, and some of the problems with them.

I would, of course, if I did such a thing even once document the information as coming from your book. Which I have got a lot of people reading, it is my standard gift to new Rx'd with diabetes. RobLL

ps - were you to do a short power point on this I would love to buy it and use it. The trick for presenters is avoid being a doctor, being very accurate, short, interesting, and present things dramatically enough that the important points would be remembered.

I don't have the software to do a Powerpoint presentation. It would be great if people did do something like what you describe. I live in a rural area where I haven't encountered any interest in the kind of presentation you describe. It's a shame, as it would be so helpful. But in this area all the diabetes stuff is run by the Usual Suspects and they are still giving out deeply flawed low fat dietary advice.
