Diabetes numbers nerds welcome here. I sometimes put my monthly blood sugar numbers up on 70-130.com, partly to show others that analyzing and understanding your readings, and noticing trends from month to month, is vital for understanding how you’re doing. By studying the numbers you can also identify problem spots, see what’s working well, and figure out how to improve in all areas. Many diabetics have clever technology that can break blood sugars (and food and exercise) down in multiple ways but I like to do it the old-fashioned way: sheets in Microsoft Excel, wringing data from the numbers just like I want. Here are some of my results, for better or worse.

Diabetes is getting cured. JDRF, the leading global T1D research organization, is getting closer... but they need donations to continue.
Give to JDRF and help 70-130 reach its fundraising goal of $2,500. So far, readers have given $690. Click to increase that number!

The world is worth exploring, and Type 1 diabetes doesn't have to stop anyone from enjoying the rich experiences of travel. On 70-130 you'll find fun but honest travelogues and photos from my journeys around the world with T1D and get tips for safely hitting the road, with diabetes supplies and without fear.
Traveling with diabetes is rarely easy but it's always worth it. 70-130 (named for my elusive target blood sugar range) exists to inspire others to break through whatever they feel is holding them back.
Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to connect with me on social media too. I want to hear about your own diabetes experiences! —Jeremy
