I started thinking the same thing like I live in the United States in the state of Idaho just in a small town but I just was curious where as if I'm the only one from Idaho, but you are in the right place :)

No, sazajay, you're in the right place no matter where you're from :). Cruise around the different areas of this site and if you see something interesting just jump in or start you own discussion.

There are several folks here who are from GB or also those from Ireland, Scotland, Australia, New Zealand and several .others who are from current anf former crown colonies.

Yes when we who are from the former crown colony of the United states of America get sharing our Blood glucose (BG) numbers, I know it can make one's eyes glaze over because our BG numbers are measured in mg/dl, whereas yours are measured in mmol/l and unless there is a way to convert between the two it is frustrating (at least to me cause I'm not a math whiz).

I have discovered a tool which converts between the two measuring schemes. You can find it here ~ http://www.onlineconversion.com/blood_sugar. If you have a way to make this link a favorite in whatever you are using to access DC, it may make understanding us from "across the pond" a bit easier.

There have been other discussions like this, one which has been suggested by the sidebar is here ~ http://www.diabeticconnect.com/diabetes-discu.... There is one much older I have seen which has 14 pages and still growing, I found it here ~ http://www.diabeticconnect.com/diabetes-discu...

And me? I grew up on a dairy and grain farm in Nw OHIO USA near Toledo OH.

I now live in "sin city" "fabullous" Las Vegas, Nevada (where what happens in "Vegas stays in 'Vegas —LoL)

God's best!
