Diabetes and YouTube
Dec 20, 2010 | 
University of Alaska Anchorage nursing student Ben McCormack was excited when a professor showed a YouTube video in his pathophysiology class.  "She tries to bring in a lot of multimedia stuff to each unit," he reports.  "And ‘Diabetes Rap' actually has all the information about [type 1] diabetes right in the video." "The Diabetes Rap," starring diabetic Luke Widbin, was the 2008 winner of the World Diabetes Day Young Voices video contest, thanks in part to Luke's willingness to make rhymes like "Sugar overdoses give me ketoacidosis."  With well over 100,000 views, this video does an educational and entertaining job of relating the facts about diabetes. See it here.

An estimated two million Latinos in the United States have type 2 diabetes, a full 10 percent of the Latino population.

At a Loss?
Nov 22, 2010 | 
A friend of mine recently remarked that she wants her family to eat healthier, but she just doesn't know that much about nutrition. Though I can sympathize with her in some ways (nutritional education is a daunting and never-ending process), I do feel that the overall American attitude toward food is that ignorance is bliss. It reminds me of the preteen character in the movie Son-In-Law, who puts his sister's bra cups over his ears and tells his parents in a taunting voice, "I can't hear you!"  Unfortunately, what you don't know CAN hurt you, and not just you, but also your family. 
Diabetes and Pregnancy: The Battle to Have a Baby
Nov 18, 2010 | 
When I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes 23 years ago, I remember being told that having children would be a very difficult challenge.  I was seven years old at the time - still a child myself - and had no interest in becoming a mom.  My own mother was very distressed at this news, but I didn't pay it any mind.  I had other things to focus on:  trees to climb, bikes to ride, and friends to play with.
Handle online advice with care
Nov 17, 2010 | 
If you're getting information about diabetes from groups or friends on Facebook, you might want to be careful. A new study suggests that a quarter of posts in these groups are possibly ads, and not for FDA-approved treatments, either.
