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.
It is exciting that your son will probably experience some of those breakthroughs. Even if he doesn’t see a complete biological cure, the burden of Type 1 should be much less and the risk of complications greatly reduced. My fingers are definitely crossed and my pockets are open for supporting JDRF.
Yeah, those would be some pretty great changes. What if they all happened in the next eight years? Hey, we can dream, right? Nice post…. I want all these things too!
Great post! I hadn’t seen that video before (not sure how I missed it) but I loved it! Thanks for sharing 🙂
Count me in. I’m all for it.
