What Helped Me as a Kid with Type 1 Diabetes
I was diagnosed with diabetes in second grade, so I’ve had this disease along for essentially all of the available rides in my almost 40 years.  From 1986 onward, I’ve experienced everything from field trips to fights with my parents about boyfriends to learning to drive to college to… Read More

Chopping Broccoli
I’m the middle child of three, the only one in my family with type 1 diabetes.  My “diabetes diet” influenced food choices for the whole family, but we weren’t without sweet treats, especially since my brother and sister weren’t under the thumb of NPH and Regular… Read More

Tode Moisturizers: A Review
I received these products at no cost to me, shipped out by the Tode PR team.  They wrote to me after reading the post from a few months ago about the split fingertips, and while they did say that a positive review would be great, it wasn’t a condition of receiving the products.  This is an… Read More

A Deep Dive into Tidepool Medtronic Support
Earlier this week, I heard about the big Medtronic update at Tidepool.  They’ve been working on making it possible for Medtronic users to manage their data through Tidepool, and that support went live yesterday.  President and CEO of Tidepool, Howard Look, stopped by SixUntilMe to talk… Read More

Letter Abut Limiting My BG Test Strips
My third-party supplier has recently tried to limit test strips for those using a Dexcom CGM system. In fighting this policy, I penned this letter. While I’ve been able to get more strips as prescribed, my hope is also that this letter leads to deeper consideration at the policy level by this… Read More

Toe-tally
Feet have always been flagged as a “body part to be concerned about.”  When I was a little kid with diabetes, my pediatric endos cautioned me about foot care on repeat, telling me to check my feet, be careful when clipping my nails, and for the love of God never, ever do… Read More

Not Advocacy

It’s Complicated.
This month, in the most recent edition of The PLAID Journal, I contributed a piece about the complicated questions we get about diabetes, and how our answers are just as complicated. “Is diabetes hard? Yes. And no. There are times when I get mired in some of the tougher moments of diabetes,… Read More

You’ve been sick your whole life?
Yesterday, I was at a meeting where the audience was decidedly not a diabetes one.  And in explaining my experiences with diabetes, I had to give an overview of what type 1 diabetes is and how long I’ve been living with it. “I was diagnosed at the age of seven.  It will be 32 years… Read More

Two Months of Victoza
I stopped taking Victoza.  But I’d revisit it if necessary.  Here’s the personal experience, not medical advice, talk to your doctor, etc. lowdown: WHY I STARTED ON VICTOZA. After having my son (he’ll be two in August), I experienced postpartum anxiety.  It was next level for… Read More

An Evolving Diabetes Online Community

Do you “count carbs” or “wing it?”
When it comes to making sense of diabetes and food, do you count carbs, or do you wing it? Turns out, there’s plenty of gray area between those two concepts. Folks on Facebook seemed to do a bit of both winging and measuring. “We will wing it when we have to, but for the most part, we… Read More
