Let’s get back to basics. We’re starting a new monthly series taking a look at the essential facts of diabetes. This week: insulin

Endocrinologist Bryce Nelson takes us through what it does, how it works and the differences among brands.

Dr. Nelson is also our community connection this week. A family member with type 1 guided his career choice and still serves as an inspiration.

Join the Diabetes Connections Facebook Group!

Plus.. Tell me something good! A middle school student came up with a design to help her grandfather get all the insulin – every drop – out of his pens. We’ll tell you about the prize winning “You Get It All” device
