Behind the scenes at 70-130.com

Diabetes changes everything once you’re diagnosed with it. Sometimes those changes are for the better, often they’re not. Here are some miscellaneous articles about the ins and outs of diabetes, including essays on blood sugar readings and interviews with people from the diabetes online community. 70-130.com is all about traveling with diabetes of course, but this section is all about diabetes itself and not related to travel specifically. Hey, sometimes it’s good to just know that someone else is venting about T1D or dealing with the same things you are.
