What is EPI? DIY diabetes pioneer  Dana Lewis wants you to know your risk show art What is EPI? DIY diabetes pioneer Dana Lewis wants you to know your risk

Diabetes Connections | Type 1 Diabetes

DIY Pioneer Dana Lewis was diagnosed with something called EPI – exocrine pancreatic insufficiency a couple of years ago. She’d never heard of it and was shocked to find out diabetes is considered a common co-condition. In fact, 20-30 percent of people with diabetes can end up with EPI.

She’ll explain what she’s doing, why she needs your help, and more about this condition that doesn’t get much...

Diabetes Connections | Type 1 Diabetes

JDRF… is no more. A rebranding and name change means the organization founded in 1970 by concerned parents will now be known as Breakthrough T1D. You can guess some of the reasons for this change – the “J” for juvenile has long been a turn off for adults living with type 1 – but some of the other reasons are surprising.

You’d inject and let the insulin do the work.
