I've noticed that we are getting lots of folks from other places on DC and thats great!
The confusion begins when we start posting our BG levels and asking for help, or trying to interpret them.
Case in point-someone from Canada posting a question about BG levels being what we Americans consider being low enough to put you in a coma, yet they were actually very, very high. We all jumped to the wrong conclusion!
So here's my suggestion: could we all, even those of us from America, put what country we are from when posting a BG level or A1C? It would then make the rest of us understand that a conversion chart might be necessary and we might not have to go into freak out mode!
Might have to do this each time we post a BG level, even those of us who've been around here forever, since so many new folks come on everyday.
It would be just a small thing to have to do each time, but might have big results, as we see that we need to convert the BG levels, and who knows, we might all learn something new as well!
Mays posted a conversion chart, and I put it into my favorites on IE8 so I can get to it easily. It was easy to do, and now I'll be able to do the conversion BEFORE I freak out!
What do you all think? Do we need to do something like this?
