My new found appreciation for diabetes patients

The picture to the left is from a show I'm in currently in the Arnheim Gallery at MassArt called Means of Accumulation. It's part of an Art Ed class. 

This piece was born from the results below. I basically limited my diet to foods without High Fructose Corn Syrup and then experimented with different drinks. The first week was only water, the second only drinks with natural sugars and the last week was only drinks with high fructose corn syrup. I weighed myself and measured how many times I went to the bathroom and also I bought a blood glucose meter to measure my blood sugar twice a day. Which is why I have new respect for people who have to deal with that everyday. It's a pain!
