My Review of the JDRF Webcast on Complications Research


Bradley and Me
By:

Hi and welcome to my blog. My name is Kathleen and I have had Type 1 Diabetes since I was five years old. I am engaged to a wonderful man and have two great college-aged kids. I wear an insulin pump, check my blood glucose many times daily and have a medical alert dog, named Bradley, who assists me with my diabetes management. He was a new addition to the family in November 2009. I also work as a registered nurse case manager for a local medical group and many of my patients are also diabetic. In this role, I assist them with care coordination and act as a health care resource. I hope that you find the information that you read about on this site useful and entertaining, too! Please let me know what you think, I’d love to hear from you! Thanks for reading

  • My Review of the JDRF Webcast on Complications Research
    The Juvenille Diabetes Research Foundation sponsors monthly webcasts to share information about Type 1 Diabetes.  Yesterday I watched the presentation by Barbara Araneo, Director of Complications Research for JDRF, on the latest studies on diabetes complications.  There were between 90-100 viewers on average watching the webcast.  She focused on questions that were e-mailed to her prior to the webcast, as well as, additional questions submitted from the viewers during the presentation.  She discussed specific clinical trials on diabetes complications and the information that had been obtained from the studies.  Some of the studies have even shown some reversal of eye, kidney, and nerve complications.  She was very proud to be aable to share these successes.  For specific information on some of these clinical trials, see complications therapies.  She acknowledged that most of the research has been into the effects of hyperglycemia on Type 1 Diabetics but that they are going to be doing further research into the effects of hypoglycemia.
