Dogs for Diabetics In The News

Bradley and Me

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

    A wonderful article just came out on one of my friends, Kathy and her dog, Odetta,  from Dogs for Diabetics.  Read about her experiences with her D4D dog and more about the organization here:  Dogs Improve the Lives of Diabetics.

    It was a great article, Kathy!

    Yeah AmariT - that was King Tut and his owner Marilyn Pharo that I wrote about back in June.  Animal Planet was doing a segment on them!  I'll have to go back to my blog and check out the link I posted there for finding out when it viewed.

    Long live dogs!!!!  We are your slaves!!! 

    BTW Kathleen, where is Bradley going while you are on your cruise?  I think you're leaving soon if my sponge brain isn't faililng me (getting older .... sucks).  If I lived closer, I'd take care of him, except my cats might shred him to bits (they don't like dogs for some reason - silly things).  Hope he doesn't miss you too much.

    That's great!  Dogs make great companions for diabetics. Did you read about the woman who's blood sugar fell really low while she was sleeping and her dog woke her up? Dog's can be trained to do amazing things, but I also think that many of them are instinctual caretakers for their owners.
