Forget a sit-in. We're joining the test-in to commemorate TuDiabetes and EsTuDiabetes reaching 14,000 members. Inspired by Kelly Rawlings (editor of Diabetic Living), the goal is to have 14,000 people test their blood glucose at the same time today - 4pm EST, July 14th.
Want to join in and help raise awareness of diabetes and the importance of testing blood glucose regularly? We certainly do!
Here's how to participate:
- Test your blood sugar at 4pm EST / 8pm GMT on Tuesday, July 14. You can calculate your local time here.
OR If you prefer, you can update your status on Facebook or other preferred social network, linking back to: http://14kPWD.org
Update: Every available member of our team (even those of us without diabetes!) participated in the test-in. Our results are listed below. Kelly was a little low at the test time, but after a snack is now at 82 mg/dL!
