Welcome to the first post on the Joslin Diabetes Center Blog.

We have created this blog as a way to better communicate with people living with diabetes and those who care for them.

At Joslin, our mission is to improve the lives of people with diabetes and its complications through innovative care, education, and research that will lead to prevention and cure of the disease. This blog is another channel that will allow us to reach that goal.

As a leading diabetes teaching and research institution, we will be sharing the latest innovative approaches to diabetes management, information on diabetes research, recipes, patient stories and Joslin news. We look forward to sharing the latest information on the battle against diabetes and reading your comments.

  1. I’m still looking for people to sign my “Medicare coverage for Omni Pod Petition!” I’ve found since I started sing the Omni Pod over 5 years ago it’such easier to get a grip on my sugars!

    The Omni Pod is not something that makes you stand out in a crowd. It doesn’t make finding special outfits to wear casually or even if you’re going to a very fancy affair. You can be one of the crowd! You don’t have all sorts of tubes haning down! If your with a group of people you don’t have to run to a rest room and to find a place to take a dose of insulin,and if your in a rest room you don’t have to worry about the tubing detaching,because there isn’t any.

    There is always someone oncall Insulet Corporation to help you with any issues you encounter!

    PLEASE<PLEASE<PLEASE,sign my Petition on Facebook "Jean Devlin Haight" you'll see the petition and there is a red box to the right you fill it out with very basic information and it will be added to the Petition.

    It cost nothing! It prevents a lot of complications because it suggest boluses based on your carb intake and your blood sugars. Being diabetics you all know that blood sugar control helps prevent complications!
    Please look it up on my Facebook pageand sign it?
    Best wishes for Happy Holidays.

  2. Please go to my Facebook Page: Jean Devlin Haight and sign my petition”Medicare coverage for Omni Pod.” The US Congress assigned the Code Numbers Pod A 9274 and PDME 0784 making the Omni Pod a disposable item.
    This perhaps seems to some of you as a minor proble,but those of us on Medicare will be denied coverage if the code numbers are not changed.

    Personally I’ve having a wonderful experience with blood sugar control since starting on the Omni Pod over 5 years ago!

    MyPetition is on Facebook under Jean Devlin Haight!

    Happy Holidays to everyone!
