    SOME GOOD INFO HERE.
  • I have found that the plastic bottles that my calcium and fish oil and glucosamine supplements come in work very well for sharps disposal, especially if you press the needle part into the plastic disk that comes off the lancet before you use it.And some of them have a flap in the lid that makes it very easy to get the used lancet into the bottles.
  • Good article, helpful information.
  • A lot of the comments to this article were very helpful

    Sugar or glucose in the blood is the main source of energy for our body. When its level rises too high, our body shows a sign of diabetes. Diabetic people usually have to check their blood glucose or sugar level frequently which helps in managing severe complications. It can be determined with a simple blood glucose monitoring device like present at http://www.ilexmedical.com/products.php?id
    =43 and other sites.

    It is one of the crucial step in diabetes management. However, you need to talk your doctor's advice on how often and what time of the day you should do testing, they will specifically suggest the right guidelines to manage the disease.

    I would love to be able to read "all" of the articles that I select to read. These "ads" are very annoying. Why can't they put them in an out-of-the-way place? I don't mind the ads - just want to be able to read my articles. There may be something very important under them ads!!

    Try the MY TRACKERS orange tab in the center section. Take the dropdown MY WEIGHT. You'll see it has Glucose section slightly down the page.

    Confirmed through my county in Mid-Michigan that a detergent or softener jug is perfect and acceptable. Label it SHARPS as well as DO NOT RECYCLE. I'll keep this in the garage due to the size. Daily use is a hard container with wide lid such as a vitamin bottle marked the same. When several days have passed and the small bottle can be emptied I'll pour the contents into the larger container.

    Once a year there's a recycle program where I can drop this off responsibly. Alternately I can take it to one of the waste management offices for drop off.

    Seems pretty easy. This blog entry is just to confirm how my county works with this program which may be similar to yours.

    Where on Sparkpeople do I log my glucose values and see my graphs?
  • To convert to mmol/l (Australian) divide the mg/dl by 18. So 300mg/dl is 16.7mmol/l.
