TuDiabetes Live interview with Dr. Richard Insel, Chief Scientific Officer at JDRF

Richard Insel, M.D. oversees the research strategy at the JDRF, the worlds’ largest funder of type 1 diabetes research with an annual research budget over $100M that is focused on curing, treating, and preventing type 1 diabetes. Prior to joining JDRF in 2003, Dr. Insel was founding Director of the Center for Human Genetics and Molecular Pediatric Disease and Professor of Pediatrics and Microbiology/ Immunology at the University of Rochester Medical Center. During his 26-year affiliation with the University of Rochester Medical Center, he held several positions including, Director of the Strong Children’s Research Center, and Chief of the Division of Pediatric Immunology, Allergy, and Rheumatology, Acting Chair of Pediatrics. His research program at the University focused on immune responses to bacterial vaccines, including polysaccharide and protein-polysaccharide conjugate vaccines, and B lymphocyte immunity. Dr. Insel received pediatric and immunology training at Boston Children’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School, St. Mary’s Hospital, London, England, and the Center for Disease Control and is certified by the American Board of Pediatrics and the American Board of Allergy and Immunology.
Among other topics, we’ll be discussing recent news of JDRF’s support for Janssen Pharmaceutical’s Disease Interception Approach to the prevention of type 1 diabetes.

Our Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy — Last updated: April 12, 2018

We at Beyond Type 1 (“Beyond Type 1,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) created this Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy”) because we know that you care about how the information you provide to us is used and shared.  This Privacy Policy relates to the information collection and use practices of Beyond Type 1 in connection with our Services, which are made available through our Sites.

Description of Users and Acceptance of Terms

 

This Privacy Policy applies to visitors to the Sites, who view only publicly-available content (“Visitors”), and individuals who have registered to use our Services as members (“Members”).

 

By visiting our Sites, Visitors are agreeing to the terms of this Privacy Policy and the accompanying Terms of Use. By accessing and/or using the Services, each Member is agreeing to the terms of this Privacy Policy and the accompanying Terms of Use.

 

Capitalized terms not defined in this Privacy Policy shall have the meaning set forth in our Terms of Use.

 

Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”)

  1. Overview

Although our Pen Pal Program is directed towards children under the age of 13, we are a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization and are exempt from compliance with COPPA.  Nevertheless, we do care deeply about the privacy of children under the age of 13 and choose to protect the privacy of children under the age of 13 within the spirit of COPPA. For more information about COPPA and your child’s rights to online privacy, visit the Children’s Privacy section of the FTC’s website.

This Privacy Policy describes our information practices for personal information collected online from all of our users, including those under the age of 13.

  1. Consent.

We do not knowingly collect or solicit personally identifiable information from a child under 13 without first obtaining verifiable consent from that child’s parent or guardian (“Parental Consent”), except for the limited amount of personally identifiable information we need to collect in order to obtain Parental Consent such as child’s name, parent’s or guardian’s name, parent’s or guardian’s phone number and parent’s or guardian’s email address (“Required Information”). We will only use Required Information for the purpose of obtaining Parental Consent. In order to obtain Parental Consent, we will email your parent or guardian with direct notice about what information we are collecting, how we plan to use it, how your parent or guardian can provide consent, and how your parent or guardian can revoke consent (“Notice”). We will also provide a link to our Privacy Policy in our Notice.  If we do not receive Parental Consent within a reasonable time, we will delete the Required Information we received from you. If your parent or guardian provides Parental Consent, we will send a confirmation email confirming their consent and advising them how they can revoke their consent.  If you are a child under 13, please do not attempt to send any personal information about yourself to us before we obtain Parental Consent, except for the Required Information in the context of the Parental Consent process. If you believe that a child under 13 has provided us with personal information (beyond the Required Information) without our obtaining Parental Consent, please contact us at hello@beyondtype1.org. We do not condition participation in our Pen Pal Program on disclosure of more personal information from a child under 13 than is reasonably necessary for that participation, and we do not retain personal information from children under 13 longer than is reasonably necessary in order to fulfill the purpose for which it was disclosed.

  1. Changing or Deleting Personal Information About Children Under 13

At any time, parents or guardians can refuse to permit us to collect further personal information from their children under 13 and can request that any personal information that we have collected be deleted from our records.  Parents or guardians can contact us to access, change, or delete the personal information that we have collected from their children by sending an e-mail to hello@beyondtype1.org.  Please include the children’s name and the parent’s e-mail address in the e-mail so that we can better assist you with your inquiry or request.

Before responding to any request to review personal information collected from children under 13, we may require that the requester follow reasonable procedures to help verify his or her identity as the child’s parent or guardian.  We may deny any request that fails to follow these procedures.  Please note that if you choose to have your child’s personal information deleted, or refuse to permit further collection or use of your child’s personal information, your child may not be able to participate in our Pen Pal Program.

Live interview with Gary Scheiner, CDE: April Fools’ “Fact or Fantasy?”

This event already occurred.  Enjoy the recording!

In this talk we’ll focus on diabetes facts and fantasies!  Will inhaled insulin replace injections and pumps?  Is there a working artificial pancreas system that the FDA is holding back from approval?  Can a low carb diet “cure” type 2 diabetes in people who don’t take insulin?

Bring all the rumors, whispers and conjecture you can think of. We’ll discuss what’s fact and what’s fantasy!

Gary is a certified diabetes educator, insulin-pump and continuous glucose monitor user and trainer, and Masters-level exercise physiologist.  He serves on the advisory boards of several diabetes device manufacturers and pharmaceutical companies; volunteers for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Diabetes Exercise & Sports Association, American Diabetes Association, and Setebaid diabetes camps; and serves on the faculty of Children With Diabetes.  Gary teaches and art and science of blood-glucose balancing to people with diabetes throughout the world from his private practice, Integrated Diabetes Services as well as through his online school of higher learning for insulin users, Type 1 University.

Join us on the homepage of TuDiabetes for a live presentation and question-and-answer session with 
Gary Scheiner, founder of 
Integrated Diabetes Services and author of 
Think Like a Pancreas, 
The Ultimate Guide to Accurate Carb Counting, and now Until there is a Cure: the Latest and Greatest in Diabetes Self-Care.


TuDiabetes Live interview with Sarah Howard: environmental factors and diabetes

At age 32, while pregnant with my oldest child, I failed a glucose tolerance test. My blood glucose was so high that the nurse asked me, “Why aren’t you in a coma?” I felt like I should have been. I had none of the risk factors for gestational diabetes, and my blood glucose level was a perfect 90 a month before the pregnancy. But I required insulin, and the nurse told me I needed to inject it into my (very pregnant, very large) abdomen. This, it turns out, was flawed advice. But I will never forget giving myself that first shot of insulin, in tears, with my husband out of town. I couldn’t get all the air bubbles out of the syringe; would they kill me? How did the doctor know that 10 units wasn’t too much? Would I wake up in the morning? What if the needle punctured my uterus?

Six weeks after my (large, but healthy) baby was born, I failed another glucose tolerance test. The doctor said I had type 2 diabetes, and if I lost the weight I had gained while pregnant, it might improve. I lost weight– I’d do anything to avoid those needles– and my blood glucose went even higher. He tested me for autoantibodies, and the test was positive. I had type 1 diabetes. (Maybe someone will diagnose me with LADA (Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults)– then I will have been diagnosed with four different types of diabetes, quite possibly a world record).

Seven years later, for the first time, I was happy that I had diabetes, of whatever type. My second child, at 23 months of age, was showing some symptoms of diabetes. My husband suggested checking his blood sugar, but I couldn’t bear to prick his little finger. After a week, we finally checked his blood sugar– “HI.” We went straight to the ER– “critically high.” It was almost 800. Thankfully I had seven years of practice dealing with this disease. He was on a pump within a month of diagnosis, and shortly after that a continuous glucose monitor.
I wondered, is there anything I can possibly do to prevent my older child from getting diabetes? He must be at some genetic risk, with two immediate family members who have type 1. I had heard that the incidence of type 1 diabetes was going up– was it really? Why? What causes type 1 diabetes? And then I discovered PubMed, where I could read zillions of studies on type 1 diabetes. I took up a new hobby, reading scientific studies. My website, Diabetes and the Environment, summarizes what I have found, and I intend to keep it up to date with new studies as they become available.

I began this research while sitting with my dad, a noted economist, when he was dying of cancer. He told me he had once heard that his type of cancer might be due to pesticide exposure. He said, “If this is because of something in the air, I’ll be p***ed.” It’s too late for him, but the health effects of environmental chemicals are certainly not limited to their potential role in diabetes. I focused on diabetes due to self-interest, my own interests, and because hardly anyone else was.
