Type 2s on Sulfonylureas Less Likely to Take Anti-Depressants
Jun 1, 2011 |

Insulin Tumors
May 25, 2011 | 
Swimsuit season lasts for at least five months in the South. The good news is that we live close to the beach, but the bad news is that after 25 years of living with diabetes (and three Caesareans), my body is starting to read like a map of my medical journey.

Flowers and Cards and Faux Pas... Oh My!
Apr 5, 2010 | 
When I was first diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, someone said brightly to me, "Well, at least you don't have cancer!" Others told me with naïve confidence, "You can beat this thing!"  Another person remarked to my mother, "If anyone could do a good job with diabetes, it's Rachel!  I'm too scared of needles."  Not one of these comments, nor about ninety percent of the others I received, was helpful, encouraging, or beneficial. 
Diabetes Patients More Likely Than Their Doctors to Focus on Immediate, Rather Than Long-Range, Concerns
Feb 16, 2010 | 
A university survey of 92 doctors and their 1,200 patients who have diabetes and hypertension shows that the two groups don't always agree on which conditions are the most important to manage. The survey, conducted by the University of Michigan Medical School, asked doctors and patients to rank their top treatment priorities. While 38 percent of the doctors ranked treating hypertension as the most important, only 18 percent of their diabetes patients gave it the same ranking. Instead, diabetes patients are more likely to list pain and depression as the most important targets for treatment. In fact, the patients suffering the most from those conditions were the most likely to list them as priorities.
