In order to mitigate the safety risk of severe hypoglycemia in public settings, a magenta “G” icon for glucose, was introduced to indicate the presence of treatment. The “G” represents some of the commonly used treatments carried by people with diabetes beginning with a “G” such as: glucose tablets, glucose gels or glucagon in an emergency kit.<br /> <br /> Magenta “G” stickers are being distributed by “Hypoglycemia Awareness” during this first Hypoglycemia Awareness Month of September. About the concept of the magenta “G”, Zoe Heineman, the founder of “Ha!” who has Type 1 diabetes said, “To minimize the response time during a medical emergency, we keep this magenta “G” icon over any place where they carry a supply of their own personal glucose treatment. As we begin to adopt the use of the “G,” others around us will know where to look to find a source of treatment when assistance is required.”<br /> <br /> Attendees of the interview can receive a free "G" sticker in the mail! Just send your address to the TuDiabetes Community Manager, Emily, after the event :)<br /> <br /> “Ha!” was founded earlier this year to meet a growing unmet need for understanding of hypoglycemia among the general public. “Ha!” provides training to employer groups and public organizations, such as police departments, on what to look for when someone is experiencing hypoglycemia in public, and how to appropriately respond in order to minimize the interruption it causes.

While much of the focus remains on tight glycemic control, increased attention is being paid to the associated problems of hypoglycemia in these patients. Xeris is addressing both of these issues with the development of a stable, non-aqueous, injectable glucagon. Xeris has already developed a room-temperature-stable formulation which is being leveraged for multiple opportunities ranging from rescue pens for the treatment of severe hypoglycemia to pump-based formulations for use in an artificial pancreas.

The link between sugary drinks and diseases like diabetes is undeniable, and the CDC now projects that 1 of every 3 kids will get diabetes in their lifetimes unless we do something about it. The tax will be a huge step forward for children's health, and is endorsed by prominent organizations and individuals across Berkeley - the NAACP, Latinos Unidos, the Berkeley Federation of Teachers, Michael Pollan, Alice Waters, and many more.
