After her son's diagnosis, Amy Bevan found her way into a career focusing on type 1 diabetes. A summer's worth of conferences around the country gave her the opportunity to reflect on everything she's learned:
On a recent errand to Staples, my ten-year-old daughter’s eyes widened as she passed the brightly colored notebooks, highlighters, pencils, and paper clips stacked prominently by the front entrance. Before I could stop her, the words came out of her mouth. “Mom! We need to go back to school shopping!” And there it was. The […]

Steve Richert on finding optimal diets for type 1 diabetes: "There is a progression in diabetes that begins with survival, and this is typically the training and “rules” we receive from our medical teams. Over time, many people who are reading this will have graduated from using “rules” of survival to making adjustments towards individual optimization. That is an exciting and demanding journey, with many ups and downs and dead ends."
What are the things that you don’t discuss in polite company? Over the last several weeks I have continued to experiment with my own diet in a public way. My goal in all of this has not been to sell a product or a dietary approach, but rather to see how I can use the […]

If you could design the perfect artificial pancreas technology, what would it look like? We're conducting a survey to find out from Glu members what features matter most in an automated insulin delivery system. Get involved and let your voice be heard!
Want to tell researchers and engineers working on the artificial pancreas what matters most to you in a closed-loop system? Here’s your chance! We’re conducting a survey to find out directly from Glu users what features matter most in an automated insulin delivery system. Existing research currently focuses on the mechanical aspects of this technology, […]

Glu intern Ben Mains on group appointments for diabetes: "Seeing the successes of others and learning from their ups and downs will lift my spirits and motivate me to do better. I feel as though amazing things happen when people put their minds together and find solutions as a team."
I am approaching 8 years with diabetes in February of 2016. I was diagnosed when I was 9, two weeks before my tenth birthday. The experience of being diagnosed was traumatizing, and the thought of life with diabetes didn’t sit well with me. Although I knew basically everything there was to know about diabetes before […]

Glu intern Ben Mains interviews his favorite CDE:
In an effort to understand how certified diabetes educators (CDEs) work with teens, I interviewed Kristen Rice. I have been meeting with Kristen for the past eight years, and she has really helped me in so many ways that go beyond diabetes management—she’s helped me develop as a person. It’s important to make a good […]

Dr. Henry Anhalt, our newly appointed Chief Medical Officer, talks about what's he's learned from diabetes camps, industry, and the nonprofit world: "When I trained [as a doctor], we weren’t taught to listen very well. As time evolved, I realized the only real way to help was to listen to what the needs were."
We’re delighted to announce a new addition to our team! Dr. Henry Anhalt joined T1D Exchange as chief medical officer, and you’ll be hearing from him from time to time on Glu. As part of his new role with us, he’ll serve as a principal investigator and also be responsible for our long-term clinical priorities, […]

Amy Bevan talks about finding resources to help with the emotional well-being of her son with type 1 diabetes, and asks, "Are there special programs or services in your area that make it easier?"
  “Excuse me, Mrs. Pratt. Would you please dismiss Amy? Her mom is here to pick her up.” Ahhh, the early dismissal. When I was seven, being let out of school early made me the envy of the second grade class. I would have been watching the clock, backpack in hand, waiting for that voice […]
