    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.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    I love this and only started 20 minutes ago. Is there a functionality that allows me to enter blood sugar readings as I take them thru the day? I am on a new Diabetes product and it seems to work great. I want someplace to go to that keeps all this info in one place for me to use with my Doctor. Thanks!

    The unit ports to your iphone, allows you to insert test strip and the reading gets stored. Print out all your readings in a pdf, then, send to your dr. prior to your next visit. Record your diet and exercise, daily, on webmd then review, compare and contrast you blood glucose readings from the iphone app with diet and exercise records you've logged, here. This helps both you and your doctor identify patterns in lifestyle and diet that work best in controlling your blood sugar or make adjustments to medications is so required.
