Back to News and Inforamtion ADA 1999 Scientific Sessions
The American Diabetes Association 1999 Scientific Sessions, held in San Diego in June 1999, offered an opportunity to learn about the latest in diabetes research, meet with researchers and clinicians, and meet with industry representatives. Children with Diabetes had a booth at the meeting. Here is our report.

Research and Poster Presentations
There was general agreement among the doctors and nurses from the Diabetes Team that the primary focus of the 1999 Scientific Sessions were on Type 2 diabetes and its complications. However, the following research reports and poster presentations might be of interest to parents of children with diabetes.



Products and Exhibits
Many companies showed new products or products under development that have the potential for improving the lives of children with diabetes. Several companies have continuous blood glucose sensors under development. Once available, these products will provide hypoglycemic alarms, freeing parents, as well as older kids and adults, from the need to awaken during the night to perform finger-stick blood tests. Here are some of the products that you might find interesting.
