A Picture is Worth 1,000 Readings

Saturday 5/15 - Diabetes snapshots. Inspired by the Diabetes 365 project, let’s snap a few d-related pictures to share today. Post as many or as few as you’d like. Be creative! Feel free to blog your thoughts on or explanations of your pictures. Or leave out the written words and let the pictures speak for themselves.

Evidence of diabetes in my life:

Showing off my medical ID bracelet.  A potential lifesaver that's only $50.

Bathroom linen closet.  Middle row has been dubbed "Diabetes Only" stuff.

Insulin in the fridge (can you see it?). I keep it in a plastic bag for traveling so the box doesn't get wet from the cooler.  Oh yeah, and I made quesadillas last night.

How serendipitous that I would get a perfect reading for today's blog post. 

Some of the following pictures I did not take, but I think they're perfect for today's post: 

Can apparently make your eyes glow? 

 Diabeetus cat says, "Have you ordered your testing supplies from Liberty Medical?"


  1. LOL, cute diabetes pictures. And so cool that your blood sugar played along for the occasion with a perfect 100! :)

  2. Love the cat, LOL! And, love the fact that you've named your pump. My 7 year-old daughter is getting ready to start pumping soon... I'll have to tell her so she can name hers.

    I posted pics of  the "Diabetes Command Center" & supply storage cabinet in my kitchen-- you can take a peek HERE if you'd like!  :)

  3. Hehehe, that kitty is scary! :P But I like the idea of the plastic bag for protecting the insulin in the fridge :)
