It’s been quite a long time since I’ve done one of these posts. The truth is, I don’t get to read diabetes blogs nearly as much as I used to. I miss that. I miss it a whole helluva lot.

Here are some things I have discovered that I think you might find interesting. Happy reading!
 
 
It’s May, and May means another edition of Diabetes Blog Week! Karen Graffeo, writer at Bittersweet Diabetes, will be kicking off the 8th year of her wildly popular series on May 15th. Here’s how it works: People who blog about diabetes get a subject to write about each day for five days in a row. There are usually a couple of wild card topics thrown in there in case a particular day’s topic doesn’t appeal to you.

There will be a place for you to link to each day’s post that you write. This makes Diabetes Blog Week fun and a place for you to find new blogs to read.

Sign-up for Diabetes Blog Week starts on May 9th. For more information,

I linked to this in a Facebook post, but I think it deserves mention again. Sanofi, makers of Lantus and Apidra, has received FDA approval of their My Dose Coach app, which is designed to help people who deliver insulin via multiple daily injections (MDI) adjust their basal rates. Let’s face it… there are still millions out there who aren’t pumping due to budget, access, or by choice, and a number of apps have been developed that can help patients figure out how to dose, and keep track of their dosing.

I wrote about this in very limited detail a while back. But I think that, of any outlet reporting on this, maybe diaTribe is doing the most thorough job of describing what these are and how they work. There are millions on MDI, and I’m a little surprised that these apps don’t get more press. To find out about this one,

Bonus Link: diaTribe’s Adam Brown has written a book! Find out about it here.

Finally… who doesn’t love a good puppy story? Reva over at Type ONEderful wrote a lovely post about how her dog Levi helped her handle a high blood sugar, just by doing what a dog does. Check it out HERE.
 
 
That’s all for now… I hope your week is off to a great start!
