For this newsletter, we are excited to provide some important updates and invite you to our free upcoming webinars.
First, we explore the new consensus statement that clearly delineates the definition for diabetes remission and clarifies terms that need to be ditched (like cure and diabetes reversal).
An unexpected finding in this consensus statement was the need for ongoing diabetes screenings for microvascular disease, in spite of remission, due to metabolic memory and the hyperglycemic legacy. Read more below.
We also tackle trauma and its impact on health care professionals and people living with diabetes. Given the COVID pandemic and increasing rates of drug use and suicide, this topic is very timely and critically important to discuss. I hope you can join this heartfelt and hopeful presentation on October 27th.
In addition, an urgent FDA warning has been issued for Eli Lilly’s Glucagon Emergency Kit. There is a recall of a faulty batch of glucagon kits due to a manufacturing issue. See more info below and warn people against using any ER kit where the glucagon is liquid instead of the expected powdery substance.
Lastly, we hope you can join our annual “Getting to the Gut” Webinar to celebrate National Diabetes Month in November. We explore the wonderment of the 30 feet of the intestinal tube that houses trillions of bacterial and fungal hitchhikers that directly impact our health and risk of dis-ease.
I am looking forward to the cool temperatures of the fall and gathering with family and friends. We send you wishes for peace, safety, and health.
