Diabetes Awareness: Just for a Month, or All Year Long?

Twenty years ago, when I opened Sugar Happy Diabetes Supplies in San Francisco, people would open the front door, lean in, and ask, “I’m curious. Are there enough people with diabetes for you to stay in business?”  My reply was always, “You would be surprised by how many people have diabetes.”

Our Kids and Camps: April/May Digital Edition Is Now Available

While the words "diabetes" and "camp" may not sound like they belong in the same sentence for most people, they sure do for thousands of kids across the country. Diabetes camp is their time to share experiences, learn, and have fun with other kids who have diabetes. You'll find the usual camping activities like hiking, arts and crafts, boating, swimming, and sitting around the campfire, but also lessons on adjusting your insulin pump to compensate for sports and how to give yourself an injection.

Pre-Diabetes and Everyday Heroes

According to the American Diabetes Association, "one out of every three children born today will face a future with diabetes if the current trends continue." It's a sobering thought. Because November is designated American Diabetes Month, it seems a good time for those of us in the diabetes community to reach out to those who will face diabetes in the future: the 57 million Americans who are currently at risk for type 2 diabetes.

Insulin and Innovative Approaches

In June, I attended the ADA's 69th Scientific Sessions Conference that was held in New Orleans this year. Among other presentations, I listened to Mary Sullivan's very interesting talk offering practical advice on better inpatient diabetes care. We've written numerous times online about how hospital glycemic control needs to be improved. For example, you can read our article on called, "U.S. Academic Medical Centers Are Not Cutting the Mustard."

If I Can Quit, So Can You

As the article in this issue discusses, smoking and diabetes is a dangerous combination. Smoking is bad enough on its own. I am writing to you as a former smoker of eight years. I started smoking in France in the 1970’s in a Parisian café. I thought smoking Gauloises at the age of 15 made me sophisticated and in vogue. I imagined I looked stylish and mature like the adults I knew who smoked. Their smoking seemed to justify my habit. It never occurred to me that I was risking my health or that I was starting something that would take me years to quit.
