D'oh, the low-40s is, like, Rick James-level. Yow.
Yeah, 5.3 is pretty low for a type-1. My lowest ever was 6 and I had switched over to a whole foods diet and really struggled with low blood sugar for a while there.
And, as a type-1 diabetic, I have no real issue with Bret Michaels. I think he's kind of ridiculous in a lot of ways but I haven't noticed anything about his management that irritated me. He's had a lot of awful health issues but none of them, from what I could see, related to poor diabetes management - just really, really bad luck.
Is Guy Fieri a diabetic?
It's getting pretty real for Big Brother contestants - the first person hasn't even been voted off yet, and one has lost a modelling contract and another has lost her job due to their racist remarks on the live feeds. And they're oblivious to what's going on outside the game.

But it is interesting to see people twist what is going on to fit their own agendas. On my FB feed I've got one raving about the liberal media and dead babies. Yeah, don't ask what Paula Deen's racist behavior has to do with abortion. I don't get it either.
Oh and my A1c is 5.2. Not that that has anything to do with anything. I just felt like posting it.
I'm not defending Paula, but our society seems to love to tear down those who have made good. We revere them first, then resent them and drag them down.
Do people even take celebrity endorsements seriously? (Especially when it comes to medications...)
Depends pays a couple of celebrities to wear depends under their tight fitting outfits to prove that their new design shows no VDL (Visible Depends Lines). DWTS Cheryl Burke has done advertisements for them also.
