Will you do it?

July 9, 2009

Yesterday I received this email from TuDiabetesvia my facebook account:

Subject: 14,000 People With Diabetes Test Their Blood Sugar at the Same Time

People with diabetes have to test their blood sugar as part of their daily routine: it’s like drinking water or brushing your teeth. July 14 at 4 pm ET, 14,000 people with diabetes are going to test their blood sugar simultaneously and share their results online to help raise diabetes awareness.

Participating is easy: if you are a member of TuDiabetes or EsTuDiabetes, click on the home page banner and share your reading; if you have a Twitter account, post your reading on Twitter (use the #14KPWD hashtag) and link back to:;;if you prefer, update your status on Facebook or your preferred social network, linking back to:;

If you are a few minutes late, however, or are able to post your blood sugar reading earlier or later that day, it’s OK. What really matters is that you test your blood sugar regularly. If you don’t have diabetes, just tell someone who does to test and share on July 14.

Please tell everyone you can!

What an awesome idea and so simple. I’m going to post my results via my twitter account, facebookand of course right here on my blog. What about you?

Talk about it because Everyone Knows Someone!
