By Divya Gopisetty. ADA now much more assertively recommends of GLP-1 agonists and SGLT-2 inhibitors for people that have heart and kidney problems– they also recommend earlier combination therapy in type 2 diabetes, GLP-1 as first-line injection therapy (that means, before insulin), nasal glucagon, using time in range to assess diabetes management, and CGM to avoid hypoglycemia. The American Diabetes Association (ADA) recently made important updates to its – a very influential and helpful document that provides healthcare professionals, researchers, and insurers with recommendations and guidelines for diabetes care.

By Katie Bacon. A low carb diet can be difficult to follow, especially for children. Katie Bacon explains several ways in which low carb principles can be adapted to real life. When our daughter, Bisi, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes – in 2012, when she was six years old – we knew basically nothing about diabetes or how to manage it. So we followed the hospital’s instructions: eat 45-60 grams of carbohydrates at each meal, and up to 30 grams for each snack. But once we started getting used to the new routine at home – each meal now a mini science experiment – we began to notice that the more carbohydrates Bisi ate, the harder her blood glucose was to manage. We then began adjusting her meals to make them lower carb than what the hospital h.

By Renza Scibilia and Chris ‘Grumpy Pumper’ Aldred. Regular eye screenings are important for people with diabetes. Learn more about diabetes-related retinopathy screenings from diabetes advocates Renza and Grumpy. What Causes Diabetes-Related Retinopathy? Diabetes-related retinopathy occurs when many years of high blood sugar levels cause damage to blood vessels in the eye. This damage triggers your body to make more blood vessels – but these new vessels are fragile and easily damaged, which can result in bleeding or scarring in the eye that worsens vision. Fortunately, there are available that can improve symptoms. For more background on diabetes-related retinopathy, see . There is more to developing a diabetes-related eye condition than jus.

By Frida Velcani and Albert Cai. Approved in the US in 2018, the system stops insulin delivery when low blood sugar is predicted. Health Canada has approved Tandem’s Basal-IQ predictive low glucose suspend system (PLGS). Starting in February 2020, in-warranty t:slim X2 users will be able to update their pumps via Tandem Device Updater, while new pumps will begin shipping in Canada with Basal-IQ starting in early 2020. Using readings and the t:slim X2 pump, the new PLGS algorithm stops basal insulin delivery when low blood sugar is predicted (within 30 minutes) and resumes insulin delivery once blood sugar levels start to rise. The goal is to prevent or reduce time in hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) – and it does so without alarms. Users can ch.
