Big Blue TestFor the third year in a row, the Diabetes Hands Foundation is encouraging people with diabetes (and people who don’t have diabetes!) to get active and participate in the Big Blue Test.

What is the premise of the Big Blue Test?

Activity, even 15 minutes of activity, can help lower blood sugar levels by as much as 20%. (This number is based on participants who have entered in their results.)

How do you do the Big Blue Test?

Check your blood sugar, get active, and test again. Then go to the Big Blue Test website and enter in your results. The great thing is that the whole family can get involved. If you don’t have diabetes, you can log your results…without the blood sugar check.

With every entry, Roche will donate $5, the total of which will be divided up and given to several organizations hand-picked by DHF. To learn about the organizations who will receive money, visit the Big Blue Test FAQ page.

You can enter results every single day, if you like.

Come back tomorrow as I share our own Big Blue Test.

From the website: “The Big Blue Test is a program of Diabetes Hands Foundation. In 2012, it is sponsored again by Roche Diabetes Care, makers of ACCU-CHEK® products and services.”
