daveAs a diabetes educator and pharmacist, I have had a lot of success helping patients improve their diabetes care. But at the end of the day, I get to go home diabetes free. This week, one of my pals and a pharmacist educator is sharing his professional and personal opinions with us. Regardless of how much compassion we have for our patients, it is hard to even come close to what Dr. Keith Campbell offers them. Dr. Campbell has had type one diabetes for over 50 years and has been helping patients for almost that long. This week, he shares his insights, with Joy Pape, our associate medical editor, on how the management of diabetes has changed over his career and how that has affected him and his patients. Just as an example, Keith had to manage his diabetes for years without the benefit of a glucose meter, but now he can use a CGM.

Just like diabetes care changes for the better, we at Diabetes In Control are changing to make your experience better. We relaunched the new DiabetesInControl.com. The refreshed site features a clean, new look and feel, with enhanced navigation to make it even easier to find all our great content. We’ve also decided to make some of our most popular content, including our “Tools for Your Practice,” subscriber-exclusive to reward our loyal readers. In order to access this content, you will need to register your subscription email  on the new website.
