    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Den we are not critical we are here to help when people want the help.

    As we explained before as a diabetic always a diabetic.

    That being said 120 is not all that bad - could mean you ate too many carbs the night before. Glad to hear your fine during the day.

    We do not have Haylen our moderator any more so there is no telling what will be said. Keep working on your numbers - you are still a diabetic just like me. Deb.
    I shall wait upon the Lord and renew my strength.
