Welcome to Friday! Don’t forget to wear blue today to support and encourage everyone living with and affected by #diabetes. I’ve got one more day of software training in New Jersey, then it’s back home tonight. In the meantime, check out this #diabetes click bait.
Does wearing an insulin pump help you have a healthier heart too? Some researchers in the UK think so. I think there are other reasons why this might be true, but there seems to be a link there anyway. Check out this link for the full report:
Insulin Pump Reduces Mortality from Cardiovascular Disease By Almost 50%
Lauren Stanford has a nice recap of the five things that have helped her deal with diabetes burnout and further transition into adulthood:

Lauren and her mom Moira are joining the JDRF riders gathering this weekend in LaCrosse, Wisconsin. It’s a little old, but if you haven’t seen it yet, this is worth a read. Moira has this to say about her recovery from a broken ankle and foot, and why her ride is especially important this year:
I’m BACK ON MY BIKE!!! (The One Where I Realize a Harsh Reality)

And thank you both for riding for all of us with Type 1.
Kristin is one of my favorite writers. Last week, she had a less than fun day. This is why we need better, more accurate, more affordable tools to help us manage diabetes:
Diabetes Pulled A Punk-Ass Move
Finally… Hope Warshaw has a wonderful feature on her blog where she interviews DOC champions. Her latest is a nice interview with Kelly Kunik. She talks about starting her blog, finding the Diabetes Online Community, what it means to her, and #IWishPeopleKnewThatDiabetes. Check it out:

Enjoy the reads, and enjoy your weekend. Thanks for reading! Have you read anything interesting lately?

    I like these handy-dandy list posts that key me into things I’d not seen before. Thanks for this, and Happy Friday! (And WOOT on getting back onto your bike — know it’s been touch being on the mend, and hope it’s only good things ahead!)

    And btw: That was a completely scattered thought, with a mixed message to both Lauren and Moira… wow. It’s definitely Friday, and time for more coffee. But YES, yay to being on the mend. For all of us, in whatever form. OK, I’m leaving now…
