    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.

    Is diabetes a progressive disease?

    In 1978 I had a blood-glucose exam that showed I was a borderline diabetic - the reading was 115. In 2000 I was diagnosed with a blood glucose reading of 300. I know it would be impossible to determine exactly when I became diabetic, but if I retired in November, 1999 could a case be made that I was already diabetic when I retired. Thanks.

    Hi Larrydish,

    This would be a great question to ask on our Diabetes Community . I hope you'll start a discussion there and I have no doubt you'll get a lot of good feedback.
