Our intern, Ben, shares advice with parents on raising teens with diabetes: http://bit.ly/1sHTLOv

"My message to every parent dealing with a diabetic teen is this: It is tough. It’s an added pressure on you as well as your child that neither of you want. It’s a tough thing to perfect, and yes, there will be setbacks and days that you just cannot stand another minute of the disease.

But remember one thing.

We have to live with it.

We are physically and emotionally affected by it. It stresses us out, makes us cry, angers us, and makes us feel awkward at times just like it does you."

We had a wide-ranging interview with two of the pioneers of the Helmsley Charitable Trust’s (HCT) Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) program (which gives $50 million a year to type 1 research, treatment, and services): HCT trustee David Panzirer, and patient advocate (and now T1D CEO) Dana Ball. In part three of our interview, David and Dana share insights on one of the biggest debates in type 1 diabetes – what is the future of diabetes technology, what is a “cure”, and more. Read on and please stay tuned for the last two installments in our five-part series:

"Since we launched Glu in June 2012, we have stayed true to our plan and have been focused on finding people touched by T1D and their supporters and engaging them in a broad variety of insight and research projects. Together we have asked 1,065 questions of the day, resulting in 189,066 responses; hosted 11 surveys and studies; and learned more and more each day about what’s working and not working for individuals and their families living with T1D." --Dana Ball, Executive Director, T1D Exchange

What's it like to wear the bionic pancreas? Our own Bill Woods participated in the Beacon Hill Study a year ago. In this video, he shares how everyday life changed significantly: "I lived in the moment without being distracted by the hundreds of diabetes decisions I make every day. The bionic pancreas did all the work. The mental relief let me and my family experience life in a new way. I felt like I was my true self for the first time since diagnosis."

Regina Shirley shares her experience with pregnancy and type 1 diabetes: "It is understood that there are many reasons why a woman with T1D is at high-risk for all sorts of complications to both herself and her baby, but there needs to be better support and education around how to prevent those things from happening and how to emotionally deal with them if they do. We need to do a much better job at this, and we still have quite a ways to go." Read more here --> http://bit.ly/1lixsgr
