The picture below shows the content of Grace Bonney's handbag, the founder of Design Sponge - a blog I love to visit. She recently got diagnosed with type 1 Diabetes and has written a beautifully honest account:  Life with type 1 diabetes finding my new "normal" + embracing a new chapter

There are promising first steps towards a Type 1 Diabetes vaccination, this is sadly too late for Grace but could help children who are in a high risk group of getting it (have a first degree relative with type 1 / carry a genetic risk). These children received half a year of oral insulin with food. It showed success and they had a positive Immune response. There are follow up studies happening which makes me hopeful they can prevent Type 1 diabetes in the near future.

You can read more about the Pre-POINT study  here.
