I Don't know how many of you are familar with the Big Blue Test. In honor of Diabetes Awareness Month The Diabetes Hands Foundation has organized this campaign to hlep raise awareness and to help those with diabetes get to a healthier place.

This year it is running from October 14th to November 14th (World Diabetes Day). It is simple, and benefits many. If you are interested in participating you can go directly to their website to learn more.

I'm fairly new to Connect. It seems that everything I'm interested in hasn't had any activity in at least a month. How do I find recent posts for the areas I'm visiting?
I'm a 53yo married female. I was diagnosed with Type 2 in 1994. I'm using a pump to regulate my blouses, but it feels like I'm not getting the most out of my pump. Any suggestions?
I'm using a Medtronis MiniMed Paradigm, it's my second pump & I love the freedom from syringes it gives me, I just feel like I'm missing something.

Try going on your profle (or the home page) and click {Discussions" When that page loads you'll see a line of links which says (left to right ) "popular", "active", "newest", "most liked". To find which is the best way to get the most recent posts I would click "newest" There have been several discussions about pumps as of late, but you may have to go down the first page or into pages 2 or 3 to find them. You could also click on the "pumps" link tag at the bottom of the discussion and you should find every discussion which was tagged with the "pump" tag.

Alternatively you could enter "insulin pump" in the search box on the upper right of most pages. You'll get a list of every time insulin pump appears on the pages of DC.

I pray these suggestions may be helpful to you.
