Today let’s talk about changes, in one of two ways. Either tell us what you’d most like to see change about diabetes, in any way. This can be management tools, devices, medications, people’s perceptions, your own feelings – anything at all that you feel could use changing. OR reflect back on some changes you or your loved one has seen or been through since being diagnosed with diabetes. Were they expected or did they surprise you?
What would I like to see change about diabetes? I want to see all the changes to care they talk about in this JDRF video. Artifical pancreas, encapsulation, smart insulin. I want people with diabetes to have choices for excellent, automated care and affordable access to it.
This is why we walk and educate and raise money. Yes, I want a cure for my son and for everyone with diabetes. But this research is much more likely to come to fruition in the near future. I’d love to send Benny off to college (eight years away) with one of these therapies.
