    The American Diabetes Association's Scientific Sessions for 2018 (called ADA2018 with hastag #2018ADA) just ended. I was not there, but did monitor twitter and other social media to get a feel for what was going on. As in previous years, it was about 90% type-2 and about 90% treatments (not cures), and of the remaining type-1/cure research, only a little was human trials of the type covered in this blog.

    So anyway, here is a huge list of links (mostly links to tweets) which I found interesting for one reason or other. I've tried to categorize them, and in a few cases, after the link, I've added a sentence or two about why I found them interesting.

    An attempt at a head-to-head comparison of islet transplants vs. Artificial Pancreas results. Interesting!

    The other form of bihormonal AP:
    https://twitter.com/EndocrineToday/status/1011330691009658880
    Most bihormonal AP research uses insulin and glucagon, but this one uses insulin and pramlintide.

    These two guys (and many others) report dropping A1c, but no one calls them a cure:

    Interesting to me:
    Open Data Tools for Software Nerds: https://twitter.com/stales/status/1010599135576231936
    I found the next tweet interesting because Cure was in title, but treatment in contents. To me that shows a problem with "cure" research. Much of it is not really aimed at a cure:

In my day job, I work in software for Bigfoot Biomedical. My daughter has type-1 diabetes and participates in clinical trials, which might be discussed here. My blog contains a more complete non-conflict of interest statement. Thanks to everyone who helps with the blog.
