I can say without one ounce of exaggeration that 14 year old Ian Gadapee may be the most mature kid that I have ever met. Diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when he was 12 Ian came on the podcast to talk about why he isn't more open with the fact that he has type 1 but by the end of the podcast... he may have changed his mind. I give you playwright, actor, student, philosopher and lover of capers... Ian Gadapee Support the podcast whi...

Gird your loins... When ten year old Lundyn Cox's mother received a text message from her daughter's softball coach... the last that thing see expected was a message kicking her daughter from the team for having type 1 diabetes. This is Arden from her recent softball tournament. I leave this here for anyone who thinks that people living with type 1 diabetes can't participate in sports. The Juicebox Podcast is sponsored by the...

Samantha is the Robin Hood of Diabetes Insurance Appeals... Samantha Arceneaux shares with me how she has helped over 100 people living with type 1 diabetes to successful win their insurance appeals. Can't get your insurance company to give you an insulin pump or CGM??? Sam can! Also, I go crazy talking about United Health Care and Medtronic Diabetes because they are scumbags. Show notes You can contact Samantha through her blo...

Big day!

The results are in and the FDA panel has voted the following for the labeling change of the Dexcom G5 Continuous Glucose Monitoring System: 1.

Dana Lewis and her husband Scott Leibrand are so amazing that they each deserve their own podcast episode! #63: Dana Lewis has type 1 diabetes and one day she decided to try to make the alarms louder on her Dexcom CGM. That simple endeavor led Dana and her husband Scott to build their very own artificial pancreas... then they shared the code that they wrote online. Dana says that anyone who wants to, can do the very same thing. This ...

I always have this nagging feeling that I forgot to wash my hands or something when Arden was a baby. I know how ridicules it is to wonder but it's difficult at times not to think, "what if I could have done something differently...". Anyway, I thought this was an interesting article that you may like to see. Excerpts below with links to the entire research article if you're interested in reading more. from ScienceDaily.com G...

Oh the in-Humana-ty! Hell hath no fury like a D-Mom scorned by a greedy insurance company. Listen to Faye tell me about how she fought back and won when Humana arbitrarily decided that her two year old daughter didn't require and insulin pump and continuous glucose monitor. Spoiler: The Diabetes community was there to help when Esme needed support. Esme is adorable! Get a free no obligation demo today!
