I write about my diabetes almost every day of the week. In an attempt to mix things up, I decided to "live tweet" a day of diabetes. What's the worst that could happen?

  1. The part in the parentheses is key: no matter how much routine you try to put in your day, no two days of diabetes are alike.
  2. My Bell Pepper Power Rankings: Red > Orange > Yellow > Green.
  3. I had to make a few assumptions when it came to discussing my diabetes. I didn't take the time to explain what a Dexcom is, what the different alarms mean, and how I should react to them. Getting to the point was what I cared most about with this experiment - the point here being that I have something on my person that is constantly providing feedback, even when I'm not looking for it at the moment. This is a gift and a curse.

    If you want to get my thoughts on Dexcom's G4, and what it's like to wear this thing all the time, try this: tobesugarfree.com/tag/odin/
  4. Probably should have mentioned somewhere that my high alert is set to 160 mg/dL and my low is set to 70 mg/dL. That would put the Dexcom alerts in better context. Oops.
  5. I've been standing at my desk since March 2012. I broke down how all of this was put together here:  http://tobesugarfree.com/2012/10/23/entry-level-ikea-hacking/
