  • Running With Diabetes: Don Muchow Runs Across Texas in Fastest Known Time

    Don Muchow started running in 2004 after a laser treatment for diabetes-related retinopathy. Running was a cheap way to start being active. Once he got going, he needed a community of other people with type 1 diabetes to learn from and exchange ideas about exercise. He started the Diabetes & Exercise Alliance. In March 2019, with support from that community and his wife, Leslie, Don ran across Texas -- 850 miles in 27 days. He set a FKT by 2.5 days.

One major resource that continually helps the Wheeler family, even though they are 10+ years into their diabetes journey, is the free t:simulator™ Demo App.

  • Moving on; New pump, new Jazzercise certification, new motto.

    Karen recently joined the Tandem family after using an Animas insulin pump. She's been doing Jazzercise for 27 years and she became certified to teach last November. For many years she’d been thinking about getting certified and it was once she got her t:slim X2 pump with Basal-IQ technology that she felt secure enough with her diabetes management to get it done.

    Kim Daniel's daughter Lily was diagnosed with diabetes a month prior to her third birthday. Lily started using an OneTouch Ping insulin pump from Animas about six months after her diagnosis. Years later, they found themselves switching pumps, and were nervous about finding another pump that was as simple to use as the OneTouch Ping, which they had become accustomed to for four years.
