    19 Dec 2014 | 2:00 am
    Too much holiday hustle and bustle can be a prescription for stress, anxiety and even depression.

    I live in the San Francisco Bay Area where bridge tolls sometimes are paid by strangers.  One day as I drove up to the Golden Gate Bridge to pay my toll, the teller told me that the car in front of me paid my $6 bridge toll. This simple random act of kindness caught me by surprise. The person in front me did not assess if I could or could not pay my toll. They simply acted from their heart.  Since then I started doing the same thing. I found myself paying other peoples bridge tolls and giving money to the homeless and children organizations when I felt moved to.

    Hi! I just started with the Omnipod on Monday. I am 37 and have been Type 1 for 30 years. I was always resistant to a pump because of the tubing but when I discovered the Omnipod system I decided pumping was definitely worth a shot. Its been a bit of a rough week, a lot of ups and downs (mostly ups) with my bg's and the first day my pod fell off in the shower, but I am hopeful that once the kinks are worked out it will make life a little easier. My question tonight is..I've noticed a clicking sound with my pod today, is that ok/normal? Thanks, happy to be introduced to this community.

My blood sugar was 3.0, (54 in US scale). Yes I was in insulin shock. No idea why it happened except that I must have hit a vein. I didn't see any blood, and there was no vein visible where I injected, but I can't think of…

    20 Dec 2014 | 7:00 am
    The American Diabetes Association (ADA) has long advised a high carbohydrate diet which seems counterintuitive given diabetes is a condition of high blood sugar and carbohydrates more than any other nutrient cause blood sugar to rise. In response to the ADA's stance, many of us who live with and write about diabetes complain about such advice, and personally follow low-carb diets. As do I. I used to scratch my head wondering why the ADA would so tirelessly recommend eating a lot of carbs until I read sufficient literature that they feared people were eating too much fat and fat caused heart…

    Today I read a few comments that were posted from an old entry of mine...Cult of PersonalitySometimes, when I write, it's basically like mind diarrhea.  Everything cultivates in my head and when I sit down to write, it all comes spewing forth.  Because of this, I rarely take the time to read what I have written or think about what I have written because I've released it.  This probably doesn't make sense to any one who isn't a writer.  Our brains are mysterious.

    Do you ever have days when you care too much about your diabetes, yet nothing seems to go your way? Do you ever have days when you care too much about your diabetes, and all that hard work pays off? Do you ever have days when you don’t care about your diabetes, and your blood glucose numbers perfectly complement your apathy with wildly out-of-range readings? Do you ever have days when you don’t care about your diabetes, and everything goes swimmingly?

    Some of us are lucky enough to have a school nurse to care for our d-kid during the day. At times we’ve only had the nurse at school at the end of lunch to give insulin. Now we have a nurse who is in the school off and on during the school day, checking in on Q several times. Because diabetes care is needed throughout the day, d-kids often get to know the school nurse well. To show appreciation at the holidays, some parents choose to give the nurse a gift. Alternatively, you might choose to recognize the nurse during nursing week, school nurse day, or at the end of the year. Gifts…

    Dr. Rohit Kulkarni As cases of diabetes across the world increase, so does research into causes of and treatment for the disease. Researching the complexities of diabetes requires access to a host of tissues from the human body. Muscle, liver, fat, heart—cells from all of these organs play a part. One organ in particular serves an important role in the onset and progression of diabetes and it happens to be one of the least easily accessible organs in the human body: the pancreas, which houses islets, which in turn hold the insulin-secreting beta cells that falter and fail over the course of…

Many people identify with fictional characters in books, television, and film, often looking to them for an emotional connection.

    M Tyler
    19 Dec 2014 | 12:25 pm
    A large-scale study published in Diabetologia reveals that your blood type may determine your risk for developing type 2 diabetes. More than 80,000 women from the E3N cohort in France were involved in the new research, which found significant differences between blood groups and diabetes risk. Women with blood group A were 10 percent more likely to develop type 2 diabetes than women with type-O blood, while women with type B-blood were 21 percent more likely to develop the condition than O-blood people. Individuals with AB blood were found to be 17 percent more likely to develop type 2…

    The Tampa Bay Times and the Center for Investigative Reporting have published their list of America's 50 worst charities, and there's a diabetes charity among them. Their criteria for inclusion is rather simple: the more money a charity spends on soliciting donations, the worse it is. Not only does it mean that less money goes towards actually helping the people the charity is supposed to be helping, it also means that the charity is a de facto business generator for solicitors, for companies who operate fundraisers for these charities.

It seems like the very word “chronic” tends to make people feel as though there is nothing they can do, nothing they can change to reverse, stop, or even slow the process of chronic disease. Just the word insinuates hopelessness, so what is the point of even trying, right? “Chronic disease” are words that no one wants to hear, and there is no doubt that being diagnosed with a chronic disease is a life changing situation.
