Hello world!

Hello World! What does ‘morethanthemeter’mean? My 8 year old son has Type 1 Diabetes. I am going to write about his adventures and experiences showing how he is More Than The Meter–that he uses to check his blood glucose level.

Type 1 Diabetes is an autoimmune disease-which by basic definition means the pancreas has stopped working. Type 1 diabetics must take insulin to live–but insulin is not a cure–and the effects of this disease are still present even on an insulin regimen.

My son’s meter is used to check his blood glucose (sugar) level. The meter is a friend and an enemy at the same time.
