This week it is all about insulin, and for a good reason. Although we have some great oral and non-insulin injectables for the treatment of type 2 Diabetes, and many of these can be used with our type 1 patients, the fact remains that if you have type 1 diabetes your main treatment modality will be insulin, and the more we know the more our patients will know. Last Saturday in our main newsletter we spent a good deal of time focusing on the technology of insulin delivery.
This week in this newsletter we have a Disaster Averted, a special feature from Tory Knebel, PharmD Candidate 2019, describing the value of Diabetes Camps for adolescents; while Joy Pape shares her private interview with Dr. Kathleen Wyne, an Endocrinologist from The Ohio State University, as she discusses how adults can possibly be diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. Finally, in our Homerun Slides, we look at insulin initiation and how to choose the right insulin.
