Happy Thanksgiving! However you celebrate, holidays and food can be a stressful combination. This week, you’ll hear from a round table of adults with type 1, and one parent of a child with type 1, about the pitfalls of Thanksgiving and about ways to make it work. Great advice, tons of understanding and a lot of laughter.
Shoptalk this week includes a company called TempraMed. They make a product called Vivi, which can keep your insulin cold. We also talk to Drawn from Valor, an animation studio that’s working on a great diabetes story called “Kara and the (not so) Dire Beastie.”
