Of Continuing Interest

  1. Join us for the Focus on the Future: Colorado 2005 conference. Come and learn about continuous glucose sensing, insulin delivery systems, pump therapy, best practices, and new medicines for people with diabetes that can help reduce the risk of complications. Plus have a great time with other CWD families.

  2. The Family Support Network now includes almost 650 families from 50 states and 21 countries. If you're new to diabetes, the Family Support Network will help you connect with families near you. If you haven't joined, please become part of the Family Support Network.

    My four year old Sarah was just diagnosed early this year. A friend gave us the book "Diabetes for Dummies." One day Sarah asked what I was reading and I told her "Diabetes for Dummies." I didn't want her to think that she was a Dummy because she now had diabetes so I quickly added, "I'm the Dummy." A few days later she asked if she would always have diabetes. I gently told her yes. With great concern she then asked, "Will you always be a Dummy?"
