Help support the American Diabetes Association and National Diabetes Month! Our goal is to raise national awareness about this growing epidemic and to provide online resources for people living with this condition. During the month of November, $1 will be donated to the American Diabetes Association for anyone with diabetes who shares their story at www.callingalltypes.com. I would like to ask for you to share this information with family, friends and co-workers - anyone who is affected by this condition so we can reach our ultimate goal of $10,000! Thank you so much for your support.View Thread
I would like to inform everyone of a new product I have developed to make managing diabetes easy for patients. We accept data from all pumps and meters and create easy to read dashboards and reports. My daughter has been a diabetic for 10 years and I have always been frustrated with the tools to manage her diabetes so with help from other diabetics and Riley Hospital for Children I created a tool set from a diabetic's perspective. Think about this as IPod (syncing the device meter/pump) meets Facebook (community/collaboration) meets rewards programs for compliance (CVS extra care) for diabetes. The tool is free for patients.
