A long term plan for keeping blood sugars in range
Are you a duct tape aficionado? When you have a leaky hose or loose window screen at home do you pull out your handy roll of silver tape and give it a quick fix? That may work for household problems, but a "duct tape repair" isn't the way to go when it comes to your diabetes.
