feel free to track them down for me. I was, AS USUAL, over simplifying
things for the masses. have you not seen that commercial where they flash
the number "140" on the screen "warning" diabetics that that is the "danger"
number...think i have seen it some magazines as well. it just makes me
laugh, such a "generalization" but really that is about as much as the Masses
can absorb.....I am not so stupid as to worry about my current high bg
having a disastrous affect on me when I am 82 as much as I am its affect on
me in the morning

Gosh, I wonder why they haven't marketed this technology and saved a bunch of
people the pain of vitrectomies, kidney dialysis and other things caused by
sticky proteins which are a result of high blood sugar over time PLUS genetics
. A high blood sugar and a low blood sugar do not balance each other out, by
the way. Wayne, please explain how that works for me (you can be my source
material since I am much too lazy to go look stuff up at 115am)
Sounds like life could be pretty good in a lab...too bad I am not a white
rat....or even a brown one, but I really think the white ones get better
treatment...those liitle pink eyes must elicit some kind of affection....
