Children With Diabetes
Foundation The mission of SCWDF is to provide short-term diabetes
supplies for children with type 1 diabetes who are in emergency situations
in which their families are unable to obtain the basic supplies for diabetes
NovoLog® works as well in kids as adultsThe more rapid onset of action of insulin aspart versus human insulin, previously observed in adults, is confirmed in a
pediatric population with type 1 diabetes.
NovoLog® studied for use in pumpsEfficacy, safety, and pump compatibility of insulin aspart confirmed in
continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion therapy in patients with type 1 diabetes.
U-500 is an injection suspension of
human insulin with 500 units in 1 milliliter. It is especially useful for
the treatment of patients with diabetes that have marked insulin resistance
(daily requirements more than 200 units.

Utah refuses to allow teachers and staff to administer glucagon in an
emergency to students with diabetes. This is in spite of the fact that
everyone knows that glucagon is harmless if administered when not needed.
Aside from some nausea, there are no adverse side effects.

Insulin pump therapy in the 21st century
Insulin pump therapy is effective in
children of all ages in reducing incidence of hypoglycemia, reducing HbA1c
levels and improvement in the ability individuals and families to cope with diabetes.
Despite lower HbA1c levels in CSII-versus MDI-treated patients, the rate
of severe hypoglycemic events was reduced by almost 50% in the CSII
Adolescents using CSII found coping with diabetes to be less difficult
than adolescents using MDI
...continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII) provides good and
sustained metabolic control in the youngest children with type 1
diabetes. Administering of that method from the very beginning of the
diabetes treatment may decrease the risk of acute complications.
The 2 year study showed that children treated with CSII had
statistically lower mean hbA1c's and a lower average daily insulin
requirement than children treated with MDI
Compared with conventional insulin treatment, improved glycaemic control
and a reduced frequency of hypoglycaemic events were achieved with CSII
in those with particularly poor initial metabolic control (HbA1c
Diabetes and Prevention Trial
The Diabetes Prevention Trial (DPT-1) is a randomized, controlled,
clinical trial designed to determine if it is possible to prevent or
delay the onset of Type 1, or
Insulin-Dependent Diabetes Mellitus (IDDM), in people predicted to be at
risk for this disease.

Protégé Studywill further
evaluate the safety of teplizumab and test whether it will reduce or
prevent the autoimmune attack that damages beta cells. If it works, the
person may need less injected insulin, and blood glucose levels may be
easier to control if the remaining beta cells are preserved.
Trial to Reduce IDDM in the Genetically at
TRIGR is an international study with centers in the US,
Canada, Europe and Australia.
The study is seeking newborn infants with a family member (mother,
father, sister, brother) who has type 1 (insulin dependent) diabetes
to find out whether a diet free of cow’s milk protein
within the first six months of life reduces the risk of type 1 diabetes
in at-risk patients.
New Treatment Saves Eyes ... A new treatment,
still in the early stages of clinical practice, can help save the cells of

Unfortunately, many people with diabetes also suffer from other auto-immune
problems, one of the most common being allergy to gluten. Gluten is the
common name for the offending proteins in specific cereal grains.
These proteins are found in all forms of wheat
(including durum, semolina, spelt, kamut, einkorn, and faro), and related
grains, rye, barley, and tritcale.
