What do you think causes diabetes?
What is the dumbest myth about diabetes?
Are you scared of diabetes?
What do you do to reduce your high sugar levels?
Do you test in public?
Who do you tell that you are diabetic?
Does your family know what to do with a low?
How many carbs are in (insert portion and food here?)
Do you think there will be a cure in your lifetime?
What is the best way to prevent complications?

It is pretty much endless...I suppose if there are about 4-5 choices and then it shows the percent after the vote to see if we are on target with the community or general consensus.

I am curious as to everyone's statistics. For example, what was your beginning A1c, and current? What type of diet do you follow? And not just generalities such as low carb, but how low carb…150 gms per day or 30 gms per day? What is your average fasting blood sugar? Exercise? what type and how often and for what duration? Also what type of meds you take. Do you take supplements? How often do you test per day?

Whew!! I know this is a lotta info, but I was wondering if it was possible to format all of this into each persons profile info rather than just taking a poll.

It may be better to start a discussion about all these good questions! I think we will be limited in how many options we will have to answer.

Oh, I forgot…I would also like to know if you have a familly history of diabetes ( I do not, but I will be the 1st to admit I was overweight and ate junk like there was no tomorrow!)

I'm curious to know what exactly I should be eating. Maybe someone can direct me to a good/bad list. I'm totally lost when it comes to diet.

For those who can, how well do you think you manage your condition? 10% effective, 20%, 50%, 90%?

Id like to know our geographical breakdown too, in a logical way of doing so.

Me too! I would like it to be clumped together by states…example, a list of all who live in Michigan and each state, then of course a list of worldwide locations, such as Japan or Tasmania etc. I would love to find that there is someone close by that I could actually meet with in person.
