Diabetes Connections with Stacey Simms Type 1 Diabetes

Diabetes Connections with Stacey Simms Type 1 Diabetes

Watch your language! That's what Stacey is trying to tell herself this week. When you're a parent of a child with a chronic condition, it's hard not to say things like "our diabetes" and "our CGM graph." But it's not "ours" exactly, so how do we better talk about this? Stacey also shares her frustration as she finds herself falling into the trap of perfect numbers and trends. While her and Benny's experience with Control IQ has been wonderful so far, it's also bringing back some of that perfection trap she thought she'd left behind. ----- available to Diabetes Connections listeners! -----...

People like Kristin Skiados who thought she’d lived with type 1 for 38 years and her daughter Ava, was also misdiagnosed. We’ll talk about how this could happen, what it means for the rest of us and what monogentic or MODY is all about. In Tell Me Something Good, how a little sister’s diagnosis changed a sibling's outlook and career.. And what the heck is a diabetes merit badge? This podcast is not...

Sharing photographs of our kids on social media has become second nature. But what happens when we post photos of our children in distress? Stacey says stop. No more photos of your child in the hospital, when they're feeling sick or in distress. What about "keeping it real?" What about fundraising? Stacey argues that there are better ways to accomplish important goals around chronic conditions like diabetes than posting photos which, ultimately, exploit and embarrass our kids.

Minisode #4: Why We Went Minisode #4: Why We Went "Untethered"

Diabetes Connections with Stacey Simms Type 1 Diabetes

Using a shot of long-acting insulin along with an insulin pump sounds like a weird idea. But Stacey found when her son's insulin needs went way up around age 11, that it worked incredibly well for them. She explains the method of untethered, which is also sometimes called POLI (Pumping On Long-Acting Insulin), what led them to believe it would work, and why you don't always need to use a ton of insulin to benefit from it. ------ ----- available to Diabetes Connections listeners! ----- Get the App and listen to Diabetes Connections wherever you go!        Episode...
