Gary Hall Jr. on Diabetes Public Awareness
dLife continues to grow. Congratulations to those that have made this happen, particularly Howard Steinberg. This has been a huge undertaking for him and it has been a pleasure to see the success that he has worked so hard for. My only regret is that I haven't been more involved. But I am busy with my own projects. Next on the list is the Children's Congress for the JDRF in Washington, DC. I am looking forward to creating more public awareness about diabetes and the burden that it puts on society. I will tell you about our progress in my next column.
I have been hard at work re-creating The Race Club site. Visit us at www.theraceclub.net to see the new look. Camp Race Club opens our innovative training program to swimmers of all levels and we have already booked up the first couple of months. So, thank you for the support. The camp is set in Islamorada, Florida, a tropical paradise conducive to an athlete's pursuit of active lifestyle. Camp Race Club will provide everyone that attends a wonderful time. Some of the areas that we cover thoroughly at the camp is diet and exercise. I owe a great deal to the many diabetes educators and dietitians that have provided me with an outstanding knowledge of diabetes management that so closely applies to athletic performance. Thank you.
Keep your levels in check. Never give up. Your diabetes is only as bad as you allow it to be. It's up to you.
Gary Hall, Jr.

As I mentioned in an earlier post, one of the benefits that made it cost-effective for me to go with the real healthcare (HSA) plan rather than the phony (HRA) plan is that my company is now covering "preventative" medicines at $0 copay. The formulary for these, as stated by CVS/Caremark (my pharmacy benefits provider), covers all test strips, lancets, and control solutions. I dutifully get my doctor to write up prescriptions for all of my testing needs, submit...
