World Diabetes Day is now an annual

event, helping raise awareness of the

condition and those who live with it.

This year the date saw some interesting

interactive opportunities from some

companies and charities and a couple

of office openings making headlines.

On the day I went on to the JDRF's

website to do 'Type 1 D looks like me', a

calculator that gives totals of things like

how many finger pricks you are likely to

have done if you've had diabetes for 45

years - not surprisingly, it's quite a lot!

See the totals in the image below

I also played around with Medtronic's

Hypo Heroes and rather liked the result

(on the right). The HypoHeroes have

been assembled by Medtronic Diabetes

to educate, empower and inspire people

with diabetes to learn more about the

impact of hypoglycaemia and how it can

be managed in order to achieve better

glucose control. -- Sue Marshall

INNODIA aims to improve the

understanding of Type 1 diabetes and

is paving the way to novel therapeutic

options to prevent and cure this disease.

INNODIA welcomed the first patient to

be included into the INNODIA European

sample collection system on World

Diabetes Day.

Throughout Europe INNODIA will

collect blood samples and data from

newly diagnosed patients with Type 1

diabetes and first degree relatives of

people with Type 1 diabetes and study

the evolution of the disease in these

individuals. Prof Chantal Mathieu, from

the University of Leuven, Belgium and

coordinator of INNODIA explains, "This

way we will be able to better understand

the relationship between changes in betacell function,

immune profiles, genetic and

environmental factors and their role in the

onset of the disease."

Prof David Dunger, from the University

of Cambridge, and coordinator of

INNODIA's clinical sample collection

network adds, "In close collaboration with

patients, we have developed protocols for

follow up, information brochures, informed

consents and materials necessary for this

collection and will be creating a living


INNODIA joins academic and industry

researchers while involving patients and

their families. "Listening to the patient's

voice and following their advice was

crucial in setting up this effort," concludes

Dr. Olivier Arnaud, JDRF International

and coordinator of the INNODIA Patient

Advisory Committee. In coming months

the sample collection initiative will be

expanded in more INNODIA centres

across Europe.
