The single-click Accu-Chek FastClix
Diabetes is such a stealer of time. An extra few seconds waiting for a blood test can seem like an eternity when you’re doing this many times a day every day of your life. Sometimes small, seemingly subtle, changes are big improvements for all of us. If you’ve ever used a lancet device… Read More

Books and Behaviors
I’ve had some conversations recently about diabetes-related books and how useful it would be to have them on our (iPad, Android, iPhone, Kindle, Nook, etc). You’d always have them at hand and e-books typically cost a lot less (though you can’t lend them to friends). First a little… Read More

Social Media Summit and GlucaPens
Let me set the stage for this meeting. I was in California in June to attend the 3rd Roche Social Media summit. The summit in San Diego was at the Hard Rock hotel, with a whole lot of my favorite d-bloggers present. Click on the picture below to get a larger version with links to […]… Read More

Getting FDA information
The most recent DSMA (Diabetes Social Media Advocacy) chat was all about the FDA. Several people wondered how to follow device approvals. Or where to find documents the FDA was seeking comments on. The good news is that the FDA has a huge amount of information online, but for me the devices… Read More

Talking to the FDA
Those of you who’ve heard me talk about the FDA is disparaging ways may be surprised by this post, but it comes from the heart. As someone with type 1 diabetes, it’s too easy to be persuaded that the FDA is some type of evil empire standing in the way of new treatments and diabetes… Read More

Design Challenge 1
The DiabetesMine? 2011 Design Challenge is open for entries, I hoping to see lots of great new designs related to living with diabetes. Talking with Amy, and looking at previous entries is helping me see lots of design issues with diabetes products – there are way too many of them. So I… Read More

Diabetes expensive now? Wait till 2025
I know you all know that diabetes treatment costs a lot. Well it looks like it may cost much more in the future, have a look at this animation. It starts with the cost by state for 2010 and then shows the estimated costs of diabetes (mostly type 2) treatment by state for 2015 and […]… Read More

Improving diabetes product design
Do you ever think back to the world as it was 25, or even 10 years ago? In the diabetes world, insulin pumps were just starting to appear a quarter century ago…and they were the size of a small brick. Here’s a picture of the first commercial pump, the Minimed 502, that I found on […]… Read More

Diabetes news and prizes
If you’ve read my blog at all, you’ll know that I’m a bit of a news junky. I maintain the diabetes search engine by visiting a great many sites, and many of those don’t make the cut. And I really like it when I come across a site that’s really interesting and… Read More

Roof Raking
Like all of us in the Northeastern US, we’ve had a lot of snow this winter. And snow means icicles on the roof unless you use a huge long pole with a roof rake attached to it and scrape off as much of the snow as you can.   Today I managed to do that while balancing […]… Read More

December DOC Update
Time to let you know about new DOC (Diabetes Online Community) sites that I’ve stumbled across. Before I get to that, here’s a snapshot of the advertising money that the Diabetes Search Engine has brought in since I created it in July, 2006. It’s not much, but I’ve donated… Read More

Now we’ve gone and done it…
Not that it’s bad mind you. The Big Blue Test video was loaded on YouTube at the start of this month. Now it’s been watched almost 85,000 times. What’s the big deal? Last weekend we visited the New York Historical society to see an exhibition about insulin. The best part of this… Read More

A Day to Remember and Share
In case you missed it, yesterday was the 6th DBlog Day. In the years since the first DBlog Day in 2005, it’s clear that the D-OC has really grown hugely in the last year. The number of connections and the amount of useful hints and suggestions for living with Diabetes is amazing. Want proof?… Read More

Six important things about diabetes
Tomorrow, November 9th, is D-Blog Day. This is an event started in 2005 by Gina Capone, creator of DiabetesTalkFest, The Diabetes Resource, and other excellent diabetes-related sites.  This year, Gina suggested we all post about six things we want people to know about diabetes. It’s hard… Read More

Wait…isn’t insulin a cure??
If you’ve have little or no experience with type 1 diabetes, it’s easy to think that with the arrival of insulin in the 1920s, diabetes is all taken care of. I mean those diabetics just have to inject and watch what they eat (no sugar allowed) and they’re all set.   But as my… Read More

New to T2 Diabetes? Read this book…
You’ve just visited the doctor’s office where you’ve been told that you have type 2 diabetes. The doctor gave you a  lot of information about: blood sugar control; testing your blood sugar; the importance of exercise; carbohydrates (whatever those are) and how you have to watch them;… Read More

DOC Updates
Here’s another post about diabetes-related sites that I’ve come across. As always, I’ve added these to the diabetes search engine.   This is a tool that I created for myself originally to help get answers to diabetes questions. I use Google custom search engine technology to choose and… Read More

Thirty eight…and counting
Diaversaries are a strange phenomenon. We ‘celebrate’ another year living with diabetes. Another year of: blood glucose testing (maybe 1,800 finger sticks); Dexcom sensors (40+); pump infusion sets (105+). Of highs and lows that are too many to count.  But also a year of triumphs (a new job; a… Read More

Caring for your plates
Kerri recently posted on the best type of motivation (for people living with diabetes). Which led me to a video from the World Diabetes Day organization that had the terrible tagline shown below.   Several of us from the Diabetes Online Community (DOC) pointed out that this is completely the… Read More

Tiniboy Lancets Review
I visited the Tiniboy Lancet booth at the Children With Diabetes conference and was amazed at how small these lancets looked. In fact, they were so fine and so short that even with my reading glasses I really had trouble seeing them. Full disclosure: at my request, Tiniboy sent me a free box of… Read More

Discovered D-OC (Diabetes Online Community) sites
This is my third week posting about new sites that I’ve discovered in the Diabetes Online Community (aka #doc on Twitter). Each time I find a site related to diabetes I look at it carefully to make sure it’s genuine and provides useful information or personal insight into life with diabetes. If it… Read More
