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 […]

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. Our friends at diaTribe have posted an update after the FDA recently […]

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 […]

Our research team shared the results of a survey done on Glu at the ADA's Scientific Sessions--Amy Kraus, Research Manager, shares the results and talks about the research process:

#T1d   #diabetes  
  Almost one year ago, I joined the T1D Exchange team as a clinical research manager. Part of my role involves developing and managing the research studies we conduct on Glu. Last fall, we introduced a study examining the use of insulin pumps from the patient perspective. We were thrilled with the response from the […]

Anna Floreen weighs in on the #CrossFit  controversy:

#t1d   #diabetes   #thisiswhatdiabeteslookslike  
  Exercise to me has always been something I’ve enjoyed—for both the physical benefits and mental aspects, whether it’s a walk in the park, or a track work out, I just feel good. With type 1 diabetes, exercise can pose a challenge in planning and executing because of timing of the insulin and food intake […]

Key stakeholders weigh in on the future of artificial pancreas technology--people with type 1, payers, regulators, and physicians--our first piece in recapping this year's ADA Scientific Sessions!
I’ve attended my fair share of conferences. But the biggest diabetes conference in the world—ADA’s Scientific Sessions? It didn’t really sink in until I checked in at the press room and picked up the materials—the program alone was 450 pages, and the book listing the summaries of the 2,000+ abstracts being presented was massive. My […]
