Recently, the FDA approved the very first stable liquid glucagon, brand name GVOKE, and as it’s showing up in pharmacies and becoming more available, we wanted to learn more about it.

After all these years.. it’s amazing how we suddenly have two new options on the market. The orange or red box glucagon most of us have held onto since diagnosis was approved back in 1961!

Check out Stacey's book: The World's Worst Diabetes Mom

This is the second FDA approval for a next-gen improved glucagon, in 2019,  following the recent FDA Approval of Lilly’s nasal glucagon, Baqsimi.

The company that makes Gvoke is called Xeris. Stacey talks to CEO Paul Edick and senior VP Ken Johnson.

Steel Magnolias is getting reissued in a lot of theaters across the country to celebrate 30 years since the movie’s release.

The movie has become a touchstone and a bit of a hot spot for  women, pregnancy and type 1 diabetes. This round table first ran last year as Stacey's local theater was putting on the show; Steele Magnolias was first a play by Robert Harling – based on the true story of his sister’s death then the blockbuster movie.

Join the Diabetes Connections Facebook Group! 

Melissa Lee, Kerri Sparling & Kyrra Richards are all moms who live with type 1 joined Stacey for this talk about the movie, their experiences in pregnancy and now with their kids.

Melissa is the director of community relations for Bigfoot Biomedical, the mother of two children and was diagnosed with type 1 in elementary school. She blogs at Sweetly Voiced.

Kerri is an author, advocate and until recently, she wrote SixUntilMe, the wonderful blog that she wrapped up this month. Kerri was diagnosed at age 7 and has two children.

Kyyra created and heads up Myabetic – which makes beautiful fashionable bags with diabetes in mind – she was diagnosed as a adult and when we taped this interview last year she had one baby and another on the way. She now has two young children.

This podcast is not intended as medical advice. If you have those kinds of questions, please contact your health care provider.

 

Last year's episode here (includes some stories about Benny at summer camp - but the Steel Magnolias round table is the same)

Carl Armato was diagnosed with type 1 as an infant, he’s now the CEO of Novant Health, a large hospital system. But Carl didn’t share his diagnosis with many people – partly because of a reaction he got from a coach in middle school – who cut his playing time when he found out. Now very open about his T1D, Carl has written a book, A Future With Hope, that tells the story of his diagnosis, growing up in the days before home meters and how his family rallied around him. 

Plus, this week marks World Diabetes Day! Ever wondered why the symbol is a blue circle? We’ll explain. 

And Stacey gives a sneak peak of her new project: Club 1921!
