Blood-Sugar Simplified
Guest Blogger Contribution.
While the biological mechanisms of blood-sugar control are indeed complicated, the basics are quite simple: blood-sugar is an equilibrium between supply and consumption.

I'm Doing Just Fine

I'm Doing Just Fine
Guest Blogger Contribution.
So, how are you doing (health-wise) Do you feel good? Unfortunately, that is a hard question to answer, because "feel-good" is relative - and the reference, itself, is variable. This makes the perception of "feel-good" very nebulous. This realization became profoundly evident to me in the early stages of my Type-1 diabetes journey....
