Kristina and Greg Dooley's daughter Isabella was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of two. I spoke with them both to find out what it is like to raise triplets (Yes, Isabella is a triplet) , breaking up with their Endo, TrialNet, I found out which one of them is better at counting carbs and so much more.
It's a great conversation with a wonderful couple that I know you will enjoy.
Fresh from his appearance at SXSW (South by Southwest) John Costik spends the evening talking about the Nightscout Project with me on the Juicebox Podcast. Find out how a single idea turned into a type 1 diabetes community movement that has changed lives, effected the FDA and continues to grow by leaps and bounds with the help of it's passionate volunteers.
What is the Nightscout project?
Nightscout (CGM in the Cloud) is an open source, DIY project that allows real time access to a Dexcom G4 CGM from web browsers via smartphones, computers, tablets, and the Pebble smartwatch. The goal of the project is to allow remote monitoring of the T1D’s glucose level using existing monitoring devices.

Episode 6 is a conversation with fellow D-Parent Sara Williams-Curran. Sara's daughter was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 2012 at the age of three. We talked about so many diabetes parenting topics including how the desire for her daughter to be able to enjoy a healthy juice box, without needing insulin, led Sara to start a business called Leaf and Love Organic Lemonade. It is great to see how far a D-Mom will go to help their kids!
