DexCom Proudly Sponsors Historic Diabetes Flight Formation Trip toRaise Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Funds

DexCom Proudly Sponsors Historic Diabetes Flight Formation Trip to Raise Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Funds
Cross-Country Flight to Inspire People With Diabetes That Sky's the Limit When It Comes to Fulfilling One's Dreams

SAN DIEGO, CA, Jun 15, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- DexCom DXCM +2.26% , the leader in continuous glucose monitoring, is proudly sponsoring the efforts of the Diabetes Formation Flight USA (DFFUSA.org) -- three pilots with insulin-dependent diabetes using DexCom's Seven Plus as part of their effort to set new transcontinental world speed records while raising funds for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).

The historic dusk-to-dawn flight will take place sometime between June 25 and July 3, 2012, depending on weather conditions. The flight begins in Daytona Beach, Fla., and ends in San Diego, Calif., 13 to 15 hours later. This flight will be particularly demanding due to the duration and challenge of maintaining the two-aircraft formation.

DFF USA aims to show that modern technology for diabetes management, including Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM), combined with a strict management regimen can enable people with insulin-dependent diabetes to effectively handle their condition while performing even the most challenging tasks -- such as flying cross-country while setting world records.

Buyers Beware: Tandem Says No Returns on T:slim : DiabetesMine: the all things diabetes blog

Buyers Beware: Tandem Says No Returns on T:slim : DiabetesMine: the all things diabetes blog | diabetes and more | Scoop.it

No one denies the new t:slim insulin pump by Tandem looks really cool. It does.

But if you’re just getting your feet wet with insulin pumping, or prone to experiencing buyer’s remorse, then this Apple’esque pump may not be the best choice for you.

Once you get past the headlines touting the flashiness of this new 21st century-friendly pump (everyone being smitten with this device because it looks like a small iPhone with color touchscreen for insulin dosing), you get to the practical question: What if I really don’t like it after buying and using it in real life?

Before drowning in t:slim hype leading up to the ADA, I heard back in early May at a JDRF conference in Michigan that Tandem wasn’t treating that question the same as most others in the industry do, with a refund policy.

Bill Will Ensure Children With Diabetes Are Safe at School

ALEXANDRIA, VA, Jun 18, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- The American Diabetes Association is pleased to announce the passage of Louisiana Senate Bill 759, a key piece of legislation in the fight to keep children with diabetes safe at school. This bill, which was signed by Governor Bobby Jindal on Friday, allows school employees to volunteer to be trained to help children with diabetes with essential care tasks. These tasks include administering insulin, which is needed multiple times a day, and glucagon, a hormone needed in the case of dangerously low blood glucose levels.
