Candy Hearts Blog - It's a sweet adventure full of gluten free goodies!


ATTENTION:  We interrupt this Friday the 13th to share something awesome.

And we all could use some awesomeness, right?

Well, I could list one link after another citing examples of the misinformation that gets spread about Type 1 Diabetes in the media.

But TODAY, I’d like to thank PARENTS MAGAZINE, for getting it right with THIS article, that is scheduled in their February 2012 issue!

And that’s not all…

I’m also talking about a weird-OCDish-anxiety thing I have over at  It’s true!  I’m coming clean about something that I’ve never mentioned here:  My relationship with numbers.

So grab a hot cup of java, sit back, and relax.

It’s Friday the 13th.

The day weird — but awesome — stuff happens!

    thanks for the links! it was reassuring to see that even a doctor missed the signs of his daughter’s diabetes. (though the proof-reader in me had to chuckle at the bit about “arousing” their child to drink juice in the middle of the night!)

    My name is Lisa, I loved finding your blog today. My daughter, who’s 7, has type 1 Diabetes(diagnosed 2 weeks after 1st bday) and Celiac disease(diagnosed summer of 2010) as well, she was also born with Down syndrome(which opens up too many doors that are nothing but trouble for her Diabetes). We had the lovely a1c appt today and after another high reading, I’ve been scouring the internet for help to bring that dang number down. My searching led me to your blog. I truly loved reading a lot of your posts, finally someone who gets my life. How do you get your daughter’s a1c down? I try and try and try, spending the majority of my brain power in managing her sugars each and every day(which I’m sure you relate to) but still no matter what I do it’s way too high. She is ill ALL the time which I know plays a part but I would love to email and get some troubleshooting tips from another mom who gets it. If you ever have a second to email you can find me at thanks!

    It was a good article, for once. I didn’t love that the doctor speculated that another theory is that “It could also be that excessive childhood weight may add other stresses to beta cells.” My 10 year old daughter already has to battle enough reasons that people think she or her parents somehow caused her type 1 – typically by assuming that she was overweight or feed massive amounts of sugar when she was younger. Overall good info, though!
