  • About twenty years ago, my dad called me for one of our routine, catch-up conversations. We had been speaking for some time, then very casually, he informed me that he’d been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes (T2D) earlier that week. At the time, he was 51 years old and had always been a very physically active person and maintained a healthy lifestyle. I didn’t know very much about diabetes then so ...

I was immediately started on Metformin.  The following week when I met with the CDE and nutritionist my blood sugar levels were very high again and...

The concept of a diaversary isn’t one that endocri...

  • People with diabetes (PWDs) have medical expenditures 2.3 times higher than those without diabetes. Nearly 30 million people in the US have diabetes, and over 1.4 million new PWDs are diagnosed each year. Treating diabetes is no straightforward task - it requires people to manage their own metabolic rate, which is a 24/7/365 job. PWDs do best when they get help from their community, friends, fami...

  • What is the “cloud” that technology companies talk about? Why is it important and what does it do?

This data is usually accessed through internet browsers, though some companies offer dedicated mobile or web app...

  • I was 10 years old when I was diagnosed with diabetes. Back when I was that young, there was no blood sugar testing or HbA1C test. Pork insulin and urine testing were the norm for any person living with diabetes in those days. With so few resources, education became critical. So I went to a summer camp  called “Camp NYDA." The camp was for children with diabetes and designed for fun and education...
