I am working on a project to develop a new way to track all the multitude of health parameters in relation to a person's individual response to being diagnosed with diabetes. It's a sort of super smart diary.

As an adjunct to this project I have started a blog which I hope to fill with personal stories related to being diagnosed with Diabetes.

Please have a look and let me know if you think it is worth while and if you might consider contributing your story?

Canada has a Disability Tax Credit for Basic Acts of Daily Living OR require 14 or more hours per week to administer Life Sustaining Therapy.

For Diabetics this is defined as being on Intensive Insulin Management System.
This means that you are taking more than 1 or 2 injections of insulin per day, you are monitoring your blood glucose levels 6 or more times per day, you are monitoring your carbohydrate income to match your insulin needs, and you are keeping detailed data on trends and patterns for your diabetes care.

Making sense data trends and patterns of such complex sets of data is a Herculean task best performed by someone with a degree in mathematics.
