Diabetes devices, Dr. Korey Hood and a hamburger with no bun wrapped in lettuce

Pumps, CGMs and meters can help manage diabetes, but not a lot of thought goes into how they make us feel. New studies are looking at the mental side of diabetes.

Dr. Korey Hood is a clinical health psychologist and Professor of Pediatrics and of Psychiatry at Stanford University. He’s lived with type 1 since he was a young adult and has a lot to say, especially about teens with T1D.

In our Know Better segment, Stacey explains a new study about low carb and type 1 that was recently published in the Journal Pediatrics and written up in the New York Times.
