Using a glycated hemoglobin threshold of ≥6.5 percent is a specific but not sensitive early indicator of type 1 diabetes in high-risk children and young adults, according to a study published in the September issue of Diabetes Care.
..."Thus, rapamycin/IL-2 therapy boosted regulatory T cells, but also promoted a proinflammatory environment that may have resulted in transient β-cell dysfunction," Long and colleagues conclude. "Such results highlight the difficulties in translating therapies to the clinic and emphasize the importance of broadly interrogating the immune system to evaluate the effects of therapy."
When it comes to using diabetes technology like insulin pumps and continuous glucose monitors, we need all the help we can get — because figuring out the nitty-gritty of fine-tuning our basal rates, using advanced features like dual wave boluses, and troublshooting sick days and time zones ain’t easy.
We’ve previously brought you reviews of such fine works as Pumping Insulin and Beyond Fingersticks (by the ‘Mine’s own Wil Dubois!), and today we’re introducing a new guidebook from one of the country’s preeminent endocrinologists, Dr. Francine Kaufman, the Chief Medical Officer for Medtronic Diabetes and a leading endo for more than 20 years. Her new book, titled Insulin Pumps and Continuous Glucose Monitoring: A User’s Guide to Effective Diabetes Management, is a slim, easy-to-read guide to these essential D-tech tools.
For children diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, life expectancy has increased, with about a 15-year improvement seen from a 1950-1964 subcohort to a 1965-1980 subcohort, according to a study published online July 30 in Diabetes.

Dr. Anne Peters Discusses Individualizing Therapy, the Newest Drugs and Devices, and What She Thinks a Cure for Type 1 Diabetes Will Look Like
By Adam Brown, Joseph Shivers, Alasdair Wilkins, and Kelly Close
Dr. Anne Peters, Professor of Medicine at the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California, has served as chairperson of the ADA Council on Health Care Delivery and Public Health, spearheaded the Keck Diabetes Prevention Initiative with Dr. Fran Kaufman, and managed diabetes for premier athletes like Olympic Gold Medalist Gary Hall, Jr. and Indy Car driver Charlie Kimball. She is a principal investigator for the Helmsley Charitable Trust’s T1D Exchange Clinic Registry, a co-author of the ADA/EASD Position Statement on the medical management of type 2 diabetes, and a practicing clinician who gives her cell phone number to every patient......
..."These are the first findings to report such a low sensing limit and, at the same time, such a wide sensing range," he said.
The sensor is able to distinguish between glucose and signals from other compounds that often cause interference in sensors: uric acid, ascorbic acid and acetaminophen, which are commonly found in the blood. Unlike glucose, those compounds are said to be electroactive, which means they generate an electrical signal without the presence of an enzyme.
Glucose by itself doesn't generate a signal but must first react with the enzyme glucose oxidase. Glucose oxidase is used in commercial diabetes test strips for conventional diabetes meters that measure glucose with a finger pinprick....
