I'm glad you are reaching out for support early on. Your right it's a rough road especially when your just finding out. I am fairly new here as well and have had some great support and advice from these lovely people. Hang in there.

Howdy CG! Welcome to Diabetic Connect.

Since you are from Canada and you use a different metering scale than we do here in the USA you may be confused by the differences when we talk about Blood Glucose (BG) values. There is a conversion tool which helps convert the BG readings between the two metering schemes. You may find it here ~ http://www.onlineconversion.com/blood_sugar.htm

Looking forward to hearing more from you!

Blessings to you and yours

It is good to have you here. There are a lot of great ideas, stories and suggestions that you can get from members here. There is an expert panel as well to help with more specific questions you might have.

It does take a lot to deal with diabetes every day, but when you have friends here, it doesn't seem so bad.
