We’ve taken on the challenge of mastering the pizza bolus! In our Project Pizza series, several people with T1D share their experiences, and we use our data from the Glu community and get some advice from local docs.

#T1Dproblems #CGM #insulin #T1DLife
Has there ever been a food more beloved and yet more challenging for people with type 1 diabetes? Something about that high carb/high fat mix makes pizza both incredibly delicious and incredibly difficult to control blood sugar! In part 2 of our 3-part series, GluAnna attempted to find the right pizza bolus and documented her […]

"I’ve seen it again and again. Story upon story of people being sent home by a provider, and told it was just a flu or a virus. This is totally unacceptable to me. If the patient is vomiting or has severe nausea, the medical community must start to consider that the possibility of diabetes exists.” - Tom Karlya, Diabetes Dad, who hopes everyone touched by type 1 will take this survey to help eradicate misdiagnosis.
Earlier this month, we launched a very important survey to learn about our community’s diagnosis experiences. By gathering feedback from parents of and people with type 1 diabetes, we hope to understand where health care providers are falling short and provide credible evidence of the need for blood sugar testing whenever flu-like symptoms are presented.

Did you or your child experience a misdiagnosis before discovering it was type 1 diabetes? Glu Research is studying the diagnosis experience, and the resulting psychological impact on diabetes management. Please help us today by taking our survey!

#T1D   #DOC  
One of the most emotional types of news stories that circulate the diabetes online community is about misdiagnosis. Parents bring a child to the emergency room and are told it’s likely the flu. Later, the child returns to the hospital in DKA. Or an adult who is showing symptoms is diagnosed with type 2 diabetes […]

The community’s response to one of last week’s Questions of the Day was impressive! Not only did hundreds of you respond with your lowest blood glucose (BG) reading ever, you were curious too…and asked for a graphical analysis of the overall results. Well, the Glu Research team is here to deliver!

GluRyan explores the connection between Celiac Disease and Type 1 Diabetes. "The prevalence of people with a dual diagnosis of T1D and CD has been reported to be up to 20% depending on the location of the study." Do you, or does your child with T1D, also have celiac disease? How do you manage both diseases at the same time?
This is the first of a three-part series on celiac disease (CD) and type 1 diabetes (T1D), researched by Glu summer intern, Ryan Brennick (GluRyan). Ever wonder what your providers are testing for when they are doing blood tests? Testing for celiac disease is popular for those with T1D, since symptoms often go unnoticed and […]

Dexcom celebrates 10 years with donations to ten diabetes nonprofits on customers’ behalf, and T1D Exchange/Glu is thrilled to be featured. If you are a Dexcom customer, your letter from them ‪will tell you how.

But when Dexcom’s customer support team couldn’t keep up with the increase in demand, many voiced their concerns. Here at T1D Exchange and Glu, we applaud Dexcom’s response to customer feedback.

"Getting your nails done without much conversation is fine, but this lady said nothing. I immediately felt this sense of loss of control. Fate was out of my hands now." GluAnna, sharing her story of pregnancy loss.
On Thursday, March 3, I quickly glanced at my CGM graph, shoved it in my bag and ran out the door to a dentist appointment. I had just finished my latest Glu article, and after several back and forth edits, I was ready to announce my pregnancy. For whatever reason, I had been hesitant to […]

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.
