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.
- The American Diabetes Association were also hosting an annual event, also in San Diego which was the 71st Scientific Sessions.
- 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!
- Kerri over at SixUntilMe found some Extreme (yet brave) Marketing for a Medtronic Pump.
- New data show Victoza(R) helped reduce blood sugar when patients with type 2 diabetes switched from sitagliptin or eventide. –
- 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
- 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!
