The constant and unrelenting attacks on the war-torn neighborhoods of Aleppo. When news like this travels across the globe, we watch in horror as innocent people suffer the unthinkable. We struggle to understand […]

An Open Letter to Parents, from Someone Who’s Been There

If your child was diagnosed before or during adolescence, managing and […]

Story
Tagline
Everybody needs somebody in their corner. If you are touched by type 1, the community of Glu is in your corner.
Introduction
Too often, traditional research has excluded the patient’s voice – the voice that matters most. On Glu, people touched by type 1 diabetes (T1D) can connect and share wisdom with one another—and offer their experiences and insights to help drive and inform real-world research studies. 

 Glu is an online community of T1D Exchange, a unique organization focused on driving faster, better research to improve outcomes in type 1 diabetes. T1D Exchange was founded on the belief that improving T1D outcomes requires a new approach—one that helps researchers conduct better research faster.

Better because it’s patient-driven and more informed.

Faster because T1D Exchange provides researchers with seamless access to resources they need to conduct studies, including:

 ·Health data from 27,000+ patients, revealing trends, insights and discoveries about type 1

·75 clinics across the country with an army of clinicians caring for more than 150,000 people with type 1 and performing real-world research

· 2,000 biosamples and an additional 2,000 people who have agreed to provide biosamples on-demand, helping scientists learn more about cause and prevention of type 1

·Tens of thousands of people touched by T1D – the Glu community, whose voice is translated into meaningful, real-world research.
