Diabetes News June 2011 - Diabetes in Spain

The Month of June for Diabetes

So June was a busy month for Diabetes.  I’ve compiled some DiaSnippets from the month gone by:

  • In the USA, Roche held their 3rd annual diabetes blogger summit in San Diego.  Lots of chatter, and judging by the pics great times were had.  So go a check out some of the chatter by looking up the hashtag #dsummit and read some of the awesome posts that have circulated.
  • Meanwhile in the UK, it was Diabetes Week (A Diabetes UK project) and was held from the 12th to the 18th June.  The initiatives focused on “talking about Diabetes” and included both a live Twitter Q & A and a Facebook Q & A, so congrats to them for organising that.
  • DiabetesMine.com reported about a new/next-gen Ultrafast Insulin from these guys Halozyme.  A bit techy but worth checking out none the less!
  • Investigational ultra-long-acting insulin degludec reduces hypoglycaemia and improves long-term control in patients with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. – http://goo.gl/4W9OG
  • Whilst in Spain, we are yet to hear anything regards to Victoza!
  • In a rare occurrence the Daily Mail in the UK actually posted a story about Diabetes which was pretty much factually correct.  Titled “It’s Not Just Fat People“. Hurrah!
