Worry-Free Diabetes Wedding Tip #2: Appoint a diabetes helpmate for the day of your wedding. This person could be a family member (sister, aunt, cousin) or good friend. Try to avoid picking someone who will be as equally involved in the wedding as you like your maid of honor or mother. Their task is to remind you to check your blood sugars at various times throughout the day (before you take photos). If you let someone else focus on YOU then you’ll be able to relax and enjoy on your big day.

The beta cells of your pancreas are the cells that produce insulin. In type 1 diabetes, some T cells (called T effector cells) mistakenly attack and destroy these beta cells. This is called an autoimmune attack. The good news is, early on, you still have beta cells that produce insulin. Research efforts like the DEFEND-2 Study are investigating the possibility of “reprogramming” the immune system to stop the attack on the beta cells, and protect the beta cells from further attack. This means you may preserve some beta cells that produce insulin. Preserving some of your beta cells may help you in ways such as:
