We are always investigating new ideas, research findings, treatment options, and educational materials to share with you. This issue is very exciting because we were able to talk with experts and those with diabetes, and write about everything from traveling with type 1 in Italy to investigating why hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia are so dangerous.
“Exercise Often Raises Blood Glucose in Type 1s,” by DH Advisory Board member Dr. Kris Berg, explains that vigorous exercise tends to raise BG, a fact that appears to be relatively unknown to many with type 1. However, the effect has been confirmed in a number of studies.
“Sweet Escape” by Lauren Ladoceour, explores what it is like to travel in Italy, the land of pasta and champagne, when you are trying to carb count, maintain your blood glucose levels, all while dealing with your in-laws and trying to speak Italian.
“The Other: How Spouses of Diabetics Deal” by Rachel Garlinghouse gives us some insight into the balance between being a help or a hindrance as the supportive partner of someone with diabetes.
Nina Silberstein tells us about “Nutraceuticals and Natural Supplements.” She talks with an expert about what to expect, what to look out for, and who you should meet with to discuss your options.
“Beware the Perils of Hypoglycemia” is by Dr. Robert Tanenberg, DH Advisory Board Member . It was so well received in the last issue of DH Professional, that we decided to share this valuable information with everyone and include it in this issue.
