Anna Floreen weighs in on the #CrossFit  controversy:

#t1d   #diabetes   #thisiswhatdiabeteslookslike

My […]

When considering pregnancy with type 1 diabetes, there is a lot to plan for. Glu's Anna Floreen talks with midwife Jessica Lynn to get the basics:
When I was first diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at 6 years old, my biggest concerns were making sure I had a snack in my lunchbox and that my Barbie dolls were dressed in their best outfits for the day. Oh right, then there was pricking my finger and helping my mom count out 22 […]

An update on an article we ran several months ago about people with type 1 diabetes who take SGLT-2 inhibitors off-label. If you take Invokana, Fargixa, etc., please read this update from our friends at diatribe:
[Editor’s note: several months ago, we ran an article after Dr. Anne Peters of the University of Southern California reported some patients who took SGLT-2 inhibitors like Invokana off-label experienced diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) while ill and even having evidently normal blood glucose levels.

When one person talked about why he didn't share CGM numbers online, it resonated strongly with Steve. Read more here:

Some are evasive. Some, like the one I’m about to tell […]
