Of Continuing Interest
- Diabetes Patientsâ€™ New Challenge: Non-Medical Switching.
- Get involved with JDRF's #Coverage2Control campaign and tell your insurance company to provide coverage that works for people with type 1 diabetes.
- No child should die for lack of insulin. Just $1 a day will ensure a child has access to the life-saving insulin they need to survive. 1,000 donors will help 1,000 young people in need.
New This Week
- Has your insurance company forced you to change your insulin or other diabetes care medicine or product? That's "Forced Non-Medical Switching." Share your story of forced non-medical switching at MyMedsMyChoice, a project of CWD.
- This is the time of year when we reflect on the good in our lives and look forward to a better new year. As you and your family gather, I'd like to share with you some organizations that you might not know which make a big difference in the lives of families living with type 1 diabetes. This list is by no means exhaustive. There are so many other organizations, large and small, that work to improve the lives of people living with diabetes.
- The Diabetes Scholars Foundation provides scholarships for families and young adults to attend our educational conferences and provides college scholarships to young people with type 1 diabetes. Your generous donation can provide life-changing education for families.
- DiabetesSisters offers a range of education and support services to help women of all ages with all types of diabetes live healthier, fuller lives. We understand the fear and isolation that often comes with living with diabetes because we are an organization that is managed by women who are living with diabetes. You can donate to DiabetesSisters to help them serve women with diabetes.
- diaTribe provides free, cutting-edge diabetes insights and actionable tips for people with diabetes. Their mission is to help individuals better understand their diabetes and to make their readers happier and healthier. You can donate to diaTribe to help them in their mission of education.
- The College Diabetes Network works to empower and improve the lives of students living with Type 1 diabetes through peer support and access to information and resources. Your donation will help CDN make a difference in the lives of college students with type 1 diabetes and their families.
- Beyond Type 1 creates and funds a portfolio of programs, technologies and innovations that those living with type 1 diabetes need to manage, live and thrive. Your donation will help.
- Life for a Child has one simple goal: no child with type 1 diabetes should die from the lack of insulin. This is a daunting task, yet the Life for a Child team provides life-giving insulin and diabetes care supplies to over 15,000 children with type 1 diabetes living in 48 under-resourced countries. Your generous gift is quite literally the gift of life. We will share more about Life for a Child in January as we once again look to Spare a Rose, Save a Child.
- Insulin for Life USA collects in-date and unneeded insulin, glucose test strips, and other diabetes care supplies and ships them to children and families in need living in developing countries. Your donation of money or supplies will make a difference.
- And finally, Children with Diabetes is a 501c3 charitable organization devoted to providing education and support to families living with type 1 diabetes through its web site, this email newsletter, and its educational conferences. You can help by making a tax-deductible donation today.
- Last week's poll asked readers if they commemorate their date of diagnosis. This week's poll asks readers if they are interested in using a do-it-yourself, closed loop, artificial pancreas system.
- The Featured Book of the Week is The Discovery of Insulin by Michael Bliss.
- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
On his first appointment after being diagnosed, the nurse was discussing injection sites with our son. "Where do you get your shots?" she asked, meaning, arm, hip, etc. "It all depends," our then 5-year-old explained. "Sometimes in the kitchen, sometimes in the bathroom!"
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when you grab the meter after cutting YOURSELF - that big drop of blood's just too perfect to waste! See more parent humor.
Featured Diabetes Team Question of the Week
