Blogging About Diabetes


American Diabetes Association staff member Dayle Kern (left), who has type 1 diabetes, is now blogging at diabetesstopshere.org, writing about life with diabetes and issues important to people living with the disease. Here is an excerpt from "The Public Debate," posted Nov. 19, 2010:

"When Larry Hausner, CEO of the American Diabetes Association, shared his experience about trying a CGM to better understand a piece of living with diabetes, he mentioned that he tried testing his blood glucose in public and was surprised by how many people stared at him. It made me think about the age-old debate–is it acceptable to test your blood glucose or give yourself an injection in public, or not?"
