I have 8 month old non-diabetic granddaughter who's sister has type 1 diabetes. The baby was transitioning from Stage 1 babyfood to starting on table food. At dinner the other day, my daughter opened a container of baby food and looked concerned as she stirred it. She asked me if I thought it looked bad because it was lumpy. I bent over the container and asked my daughter, "Is it Type 1?" What I meant to say was Stage 1.

Studies and Surveys
- Are you the spouse or partner of someone with type 1 diabetes? The Behavioral Diabetes Institute is developing the first ever, Web-based program to address the emotional stresses of spouses and partners just like you. But we need your help! To develop this program, we need partners to complete an online, anonymous, 15 – 20 minute questionnaire. We will use these results to help us understand how partners are struggling and how we can help. These findings will then be used to build the final online program. When completed in early 2013, this program will be available to partners all over the world at no cost. If you might be willing to participate, please go to http://behavioraldiabetesinstitute.org/Just-For-Partners-Program.html for further information.
