Have you joined Glu yet??

on June 3, 2014

Hi!! and Happy Tuesday!! Have you heard about Glu yet?? It’s a Boston based nonprofit that, as I understand it, is a community based group of PWD that collects data for potential future research projects. They are connected to many of the diabetes clinics around the country, as well as to the research institutes, and talk with them regularly. They have a question of the day regarding your diabetes with some of the questions being submitted by users of the site. It’s an interesting and fun way to begin your day and it starts many conversations through the comment section of each question.

The most visible people from Glu are GluAnna-Anna Floreen and GluBill-Bill Woods, whom many of you may have seen his earlier videos on They hold events related to dealing with diabetes, most recently a presentation from Tandem T Slim and Dexcom. I attended the Dexcom event that you may have read about here. Glu is on the forefront of immerging research because they hear from their users about what we want from our technology to better manage our disease.

You can check Glu out at I really love connecting with other PWD & Glu has a large community of us who regularly use the site. Go ahead!! Check it out and maybe even sign up!! You won’t be sorry.

Remember…Check!! Don’t Guess!!
