Congratulations! That is quite an accomplishment:)
Wow, that is impressive! I am at 38 years now. I intend on celebrating so much when I reach the 50-year mark that I won't make it to 70 ;)
The more power and the more years to YOU ...thanks for sharing shoshana!
I only had the ketone testing as a kid, no glucometers. What changes have you seen? Did you reuse your syringes??
MY MOTHER & I WHEN I GOT OLDER ALWAYS BOILED THE SYRINGE & NEEDLE BEFORE EACH USE.THERE WAS NO BLOOD TESTING ONLY URINE TESTING.USED TO GO TO LAB FOR BG TESTING EVERY FEW MONTHS.I'M LUCKY TO STILL BE HERE,ESPECIALLY SINCE WE WENT THROUGH WW 2 IN FRANCE HIDING FROM THE NAZIS/GERMANS.HOW LUCKY CAN YOU BE...
THANKS ALL OF YOU & DON'T EVER GIVE UP YOU'LL MAKE IT TOO KEEP :)ing
Hi shoshana, please write a blog sometime about those years in WW 2 hiding from the Nazis. You have lived through so much history, both personal and world-history. Congrats on your Joslin Medal.

THANKS TO ALL MY FRIENDS & NOT YET FRIENDS
DON'T GIVE UP....YOU NEVER KNOW...WE ALL EAT HEALTHIER THAN MOST OTHER PEOPLE.:)
I AM 33 YEARS WITH DIABETES, I HAVE USED GLASS SYRINGES, STEEL NEEDLES AND TESTED MY SUGARS THROUGH BENEDICT SOLUTIONS [ URINE TEST THE SOLUTIONS WAS BOILED ON FLAME FOR 4-5 MINTUS AND THEN 5 URINE DROPS WERE ADDED IN IT AND THEN BOILED AND THEN COLOR WAS MATCHED. IF IT REMAINS BLUE THEN NO SUGAR, IF LIGHT GREEN TRACES, THEN YELLOW, THEN RED MEANS GREAT SUGAR, THAT WAS TERRIBLE TIME
I WISH A LOT THAT I MAY LIVE UP TO AT LEAST 50 YEARS WITH THIS TO CELEBRATE MY GOLDEN JUBILEE OF DIABETES
Hellol 123, you'll live to see 50 years and then some.
