You wouldn't believe the weird queries that bring people to diabetes websites. Or maybe you would. If you write a blog yourself, and have ever checked the search terms, I'm sure you've had a chuckle. Among my favorite recent search terms for landing here at the 'Mine are:

"fun facts about the immune system"

"glucose guiness"

and

"he didn't have medical id"
