"So they are successful at growing beta cells from stem cells. What about when the immune system -- T1D is an autoimmune disease -- whack the new cells? Is it a cure if the patient spends the rest of their lives using immuno-supressants? I'm…"

Chas replied to Khürt Williams's discussion 'ACCU-CHEK® 360° diabetes management system in Virtual Machine on a Mac?' in the group Roche Accu-Chek Users
"May be cheaper to add a standard hard drive to your Mac, in addition to what you have today. Or even try a Win Laptop to do the downloads ?. With the issues I had with Dexcom i've now removed VMWare and moved to a Win Laptop for downloading."

Khürt Williams commented on Emily Coles's event 'Live interview with Steven, Devon and Grasshopper, creators of #NoPricks'
"I assume this would be for basal insulin. Bolus -- fast acting -- insulin would likely still require a needle/pump. There is also the question of efficacy and accuracy of dosing given the variation in skin between individuals."

Diabetes Alert Day.

Posted on March 24, 2009 at 7:03am 0 Comments

Received an internal email from the matabolic research side of the company promoting Diabetes Alert Day in collaboration with the ADA. I think it totally misses the opportunity to bring aware to the different types of diabetes. As a Type 1 I get the ignorant "you got to exercise and lower your blood pressure' comments. People sometimes ignore the rather thin 140lb, 5ft 4in, human being standing in front of them.

Our Annual Campaign is coming!

Would you consider helping by writing a short comment/testimonial about your
experiences at TuD? The main message for the campaign this year is that no
one with diabetes should ever feel alone. Messages from our community give
people a real-life, personal sense of how valuable TuDiabetes is to each of
us, how it's changed our lives, etc.

If you can, please include a photo of you doing something diabetic (if that
makes sense LOL). Please post to this group
(http://www.tudiabetes.org/group/why-i-participate-in-this-community), or message to me from my page.

Thanks my friends!

Hello there Khürt! Thank you for having me as a friend!
New Jersey....a distance away, but it feels like you're right here! That's one of the appealing factors of tu.diabetes. I'm in Canada...in the southwestern part of the province of Ontario...a city named Kitchener-Waterloo (2 cities joined together). I'm a wife of 33 years (hubby is also diabetic), mom to two grown children (one 28, the other 26), a grandma to 3 lovable little boys, a teacher, and before that an illustrator (still do some) and graphic designer....I speak French fluently, I read, history fascinates me, I paint, sing, walk, garden, ski, ride my bike....did I mention "read"? I love having friends over, I volunteer here there and everywhere, I bake/cook, am an eclectic music lover, an animal lover...the ocean...ah the ocean...it speaks to me! Oh...and I have diabetes (and a few other things).
Nice to have you as a friend!!! Tell me a bit about yourself!
Keep in touch, ok?
be well....linda
