D-Blog Week: Fantasy Diabetes Device
Tell us what your Fantasy Diabetes Device would be? Think of your dream blood glucose checker, delivery system for insulin or other meds, magic carb counter, etc etc etc. The sky is the limit – what would you love to see?
As someone managing type 2 diabetes with diet/exercise/metformin, I cannot really think of much in this category. Umm…
Maybe a blood glucose monitor with snappy comebacks like, “what the f— did you eat?”, or “you are awesome!”, or “better luck next time”. Not unlike a magic 8 ball?
Or something like a polygraph machine, only where it shocks me when I haven’t exercised in over 48-72 hours.
Ok, I thought of one that many of us, regardless of diabetes type, could appreciate. Time zone stabilizer, ensuring that jet lag does not wreak havoc on blood sugars. (Other factors may still apply to wavering blood sugars, and you may still experience insomnia.)

I’m going to be having imaginary smart-ass arguments with my meter all day today, picturing those snappy comebacks that it’d have in your fantasy device universe. This day may already be shot… (not pun intended – or was it?). Thanks for this! :))
hahaha that’s pretty funny, hey at least it would lighten our mood every time we tested, that’s super valuable!
I would love a sarcastic talking glucose meter! That would make testing more fun (is it fun now???)
LOL, nice post
