Diabetes 101 is a new website created

by a group of HCPs who had been

communicating information via Twitter.

The website has been created so that

people who are not on that social media

can access the same information but in

this format. The site contains educational

documentation for people living with

diabetes, Types 1 and 2, for adults and

children. It also contains Covid-19 FAQs,

as well as quizzes and infographics on

some aspects of living with the condition.

Speaking on behalf of the group, DSN

Alison Cox says, "I have been one of the

HCPs involved in a Twitter group called

@_diabetes101. We are all volunteers

and have just wanted to help people with

diabetes during the pandemic. Twitter can

be a fast way to get information, but it can

also be quite hard to find information if

you are not familiar with using Twitter - or

of course if you are not on it at all. We felt

The charity Diabetes Research and

Wellness Foundation (DRWF) partnered

with the organisers of Diabetes

Professional Care (DPC), the UK's

leading national diabetes annual event

for healthcare professionals, to provide

an innovative virtual conference. The

new first-of-its-kind event was entitled

United Through Diabetes (UTD) and was

held on World Diabetes Day last year, 14

November 2020.

that we had so much good information

shared, that it was worth collating it all

in one place on a website that can be

accessed by anyone who can get on the

internet."

The team is made up of three

Consultant Diabetologists, a GP with

special interest (GPwSI) in diabetes, a

Clinical Psychologist, two pharmacists,

two dietitians, nine Diabetes Specialist

Nurses and a Diabetes Retinopathy

Researcher (of these, one consultant,

one dietician and two of the DSNs are

in paediatric diabetes care). All team

members give their own time voluntarily

in addition to their clinical roles.

DIABETES 101

UTD EVENT

JDRF in the US has launched a

programme aimed at early detection of

Type 1 diabetes, built around an easyto-use home test kit, Mike Hoskins from

Healthline reports.

T1Detect, developed by Bay Area

biotech company Enable Biosciences, is

a finger-prick test that looks for particular

autoantibodies in the blood that are the

most important markers for the condition.

Many Type 1 diabetes diagnoses are

dramatic affairs that land many children

and adults in hospital - sometimes with

near-death experiences - and a large

majority of newly diagnosed have no

warning or family history of this chronic

condition, so a test kit like this could be a

game changer.

"This ground-breaking initiative is an

important milestone for JDRF because

HOME SCREENING FOR TYPE 1

it will increase awareness about earlystage Type

1, provide access to crucial

education and support for those at risk,

and pave the way to ensuring that Type

1 diabetes screening becomes part of

universal, clinical preventive services, says

JDRF CEO Dr Aaron Kowalski.

The home kit is available from

manufacturer Enable Biosciences for $55.

JDRF is also subsidising it for those who

might not be able to afford the full cost, at

a discount price of just $10.

Full results can take up to six weeks,

along with a full explanation of what those

results mean and your next steps.
