"This [analysis] only sharpens our focus for the absolute need for the development and dissemination of an artificial pancreas, safe and effective islet replacement, development of smarter insulins and non-insulin therapies, and rigorous quality improvement in clinical care."

When on the road doing interviews around the country, special projects manager Steve Richert asks, “What is one thing you’ve never told anyone about diabetes?” Some answers may surprise you. When one person talked about why he didn't share CGM numbers online, it resonated strongly with Steve. Read more here:
In the course of my travels I have been doing interviews with people with diabetes—and as you will soon hear, I like to conclude each conversation by asking, “What is one thing you’ve never told anyone about diabetes?” Some answers are profound or shocking. Some are evasive. Some, like the one I’m about to tell […]

What does an artificial pancreas system mean to you? How would it function, and what are your concerns about being able to access one? We're heading to the ADA Scientific Sessions in June, and are hoping you'll join the discussion so we can inform researchers and healthcare providers what our community thinks of the future of diabetes technology.
The future of diabetes technology is gaining rapid momentum, and is in the news more and more. Whether you call it an artificial pancreas, bionic pancreas, or automated insulin delivery system, these types of devices are in development and as we’ve seen here on Glu, there is a tremendous amount of excitement about following the […]

Glu's Steve Richert on why the term "noncompliant" grates on the nerves so much: "I was there to draw plans and inspiration; to stoke the fires that were fed with the dead-wood language of compliance. I know that this is just the beginning of something big. Something that hinges on action, not hashtags....None of it is about being compliant. We do not have a system that has earned my compliance."
Words carry with them a lot of power, especially in their delivery. This week I spent several days at a diabetes conference, our T1D Exchange Annual Meeting; there were many people in attendance representing the diabetes industry, research, clinicians, and patient advocates. Everyone came for their own reasons—mostly to see what we are working on […]

GluMom Amy Bevan talks about leaving her kids, one of whom has T1D, for a much needed getaway with her husband. "Three is a handful, even without something as stressful as T1D. Which one of our friends or relatives would take on such a monumental responsibility? And if we found someone willing to do so, would we really be able to let go of parenting, of T1D, and all the chaos that ensues in our marriage to truly relax?"
When my oldest child was born, I spent 12 happy weeks immersing myself into motherhood. I had a fairly good gig—Sarah was an easygoing baby who slept well from the start and smiled willingly as long as she was fed and dry. It was hard not to be in love with this tiny creature and […]

What's it like to know people are watching your BG levels? GluAnna connects with her 5 followers on Dexcom Share to get their view on what it's like for them:
After wearing the Dexcom Share for a couple of days and getting used to seeing my own numbers on my phone, I thought, “Okay I’ll start inviting people to follow me and my blood sugar graph using the Dexcom ‘follow’ app on their Apple devices.” I sent an email to a few people and they […]
