Re: [IP] Seasonal bg fluctuations



I've noticed over the past 11 years that I'm most likely to wind up in the
ER from gastric paresis in September/October, and March/April--often in the
middle of a major Colorado blizzard (and I live at the top of a 9,000'
foothill off a narrow, curvy road)!!??!  Weird coincidence?!
