Stacey talks to Jen Block from Bigfoot Biomedical with a look at why they plan to be more than a pump company, offering help navigating healthcare and a subscription service. Jen is the VP of Medical and Clinical Affairs. She was diagnosed with type 1 her sophomore year in college, during a cross country road trip. Now a Nurse Practitioner and Certified Diabetes Educator, she shares her story and details about Bigfoot.

In our Know Better Segment, one of the very first studies about LADA – sometimes called type 1.5. We’ll tell you what researchers learned.

And Stacey shares a story about a recent wedding where she made one T1D friend and embarrassed herself trying to track down another.

Once called deliberately non-compliant, this week's guest is all about the importance of language when it comes to diabetes. Renza Scibilia has some strong opinions about why words really matter.

We’ll talk more about her non compliance – it has to do with her Looping, using one of the do it yourself options - and about her diagnosis as a young adult. Plus, information from Diabetes Australia and The Grumpy Pumper

In our Community Connections this week, the Type 1 Renegade Run is making noise in the Northeast. The event this past weekend marks the 7th year of this obstacle course and block party.

And a closer look at keeping insulin at the right temperature from the pharmacy to your fridge. JDRF, ADA & Helmsley Trust are teaming up to study this issue. 

Did you see Chris Ruden pop up in the NBC Titan Games promo?! Here's our interview with the T1D body builder from last year.

Darrell Greene is one of the first people to try Eversense, the implantable long-term CGM from Senseonics. With Eversense, a doctor places the sensor in the upper arm where it stays for three months. More information here.

Darrell explains what the experience is like, how the sensor feels under the skin and shares his story of living with T1D since his early 20s. Darrell is a local news anchor in Memphis, Tennessee and has some fun stories to share about working in the industry. 

Watch the video of Darrell and his doctor explaining Eversense. Darrell even taped the procedure!

Our Know Better segment this week features information about Lilly's faster acting insulin, moving along through the aptly named PRONTO studies.

JDRF’s Chief Mission Officer Aaron Kowalski talks about what’s new and next in terms of research. He also gives us perspective on what’s come before including how JDRF helped fund the CGM and hybrid closed loop landscape that we’re all very familiar with now, but that almost didn’t happen.

Aaron explains what else JDRF is looking at these days, including glucose responsive insulin. He shares his family's story as well - he and his brother both have type 1.

Plus.. how do you get rid of needles and Sharps containers? The rules aren’t the same in every state or even every city. Put your Zipcode in at this website and find out what's recommended where you live.
