FreeStyle Lite Meter

Test strips and soft ware

Pros: I bought a CD and cable from ABBOTT co. and have used it for a long time, it will record what date month you place in it and you can print out your result and take to your Dr. My old meter Freestyle read glucose sugars in normal to high range.

Cons: My new meter is more confusing because it reads in A1C range, co pilot has also changed but still has grafts to use. I don't know how to convert the number back to sugar levels as it was. I have the freestyle lite model now.

Overall: Over all I will stay with Freestyle as other company's or Pharmacy's have tried to switch me to new talking meters,I don't need talk I see the numbers and the strips are fine also the lance poker is comfortable to use.

Mediterranean Diet

I am a Mediterranean dieter

Pros: The Mediterranean diet is for me the best choice for a person like me that like variety in the food. I found countless choices of food combination that help me to manage my type 1 diabetes and at same time never became boring of the food.

Cons: Maybe I am wrong but I never found anything wrong with this diet.

Overall: I am following the Mediterranean diet since the last 11 years. I have no prob with the combination of the veg, legums, beans, nuts etc. It help me a lot to control my numbers. And it help me to loose weight. In my case was really helpful and cause I love to cook, I start learning different recipes from the south of Italy, from Egypt, Morocco, Greece that are some of the countries that use this way of eating. This way I made my diet with more variety and I enjoy it a lot.
