    Emergency Contact Info

    Per suggestion from @what, I've added an emergency contact section to profiles. Completely optional. Only viewable by mods/admins. I don't think I have to explain why this could be extremely useful. Consists of contact name, contact number, and additional info. For instance, I put Carie, her mobile number, and that I'm diabetic. In the event of an emergency, anyone can reach out to a mod/admin with information who can then reach out to the emergency contact. Right now this can be done via thread, PM, whatever. I will soon have another option ready. You can edit yours by visiting your profile and clicking the edit button. You may also see a banner at the top of each page reminding you to complete your profile. Clicking through that should work as well.

    With riding season finally here, I figured I’d bump this up.

    Diabetics, come on in

    Last July I was diagnosed with type 2. I was 34, 6'3", and 170lbs. It was bit of a shock. My A1C was 12.1, well within the suicidal range, and my fasting level was in the mid 300s. Obviously I'd had it for a while and never knew it. After nearly a year on metformin and cutting almost all refined sugar, my A1C is down to 5.1. The only time of day I haven't been able to get my numbers into non-diabetic range is my morning fasting. It's consistently 115-150. Driving me crazy. Anyways, when I was first diagnosed it was difficult, mentally and physically. I had wished there was someone I could talk to about it, someone in the same boat. Someone to bounce ideas and questions off. I figured most of you are like family at this point, and if anyone was in the same situation I was a year ago I'd want to help. So, if you're recently diagnosed, have had it for years, whatever, let's chat. We can chat here publicly in this thread, via PMs, whatever. That said, I'll get the conversation started. Glucometers suck. Anyone using the Bluetooth one from iHealth? I want to sync with my phone. Right now I test and enter the results manually. I forget all the time. Today I entered numbers since October.

    Diabetics, come on in

    It’s been a while, but wanted to share an update. I’m not type 2. I’m type 1, or 1.5 (LADA) to be specific. I have very high GAD antibodies, meaning it’s autoimmune. I started insulin a few weeks ago and feel like a freaking rockstar. Sure wish the docs would’ve got it right at the beginning.

    Who knows how European companies work?

    Odds are if the company in Italy is real, this US office isn’t. Call the Italian corporate office and ask.

    Who knows how European companies work?

    Sure sounds the same to me.

    Who knows how European companies work?

    Seems a bit sketchy but could be fine. The probationary period is very common for European companies. My company says 3 or 6 months. I forget. I would definitely recommend doing more research about the company. Maybe try calling the corporate number and ask to speak to HR? Could be a scam to get your social and everything for identity theft.
