Monday, October 18, 2021, 5pm PDT: Type 1 Diabetes and Gastric/Digestive Issues: Diagnosis, Management and Research
Dr. Marina Basina & Dr. Linda Nguyen, Stanford University

Though gastrointestinal (GI) complications are common in longstanding diabetes, changes in the gut begin as early as 6 months after diagnosis of Type 1 diabetes. And the awareness of these complications is low among physicians. Early identification and appropriate management of GI complications are important for improving both diabetic management and quality of life.
Dr. Marina Basina is Clinical Professor of Medicine, Endocrinology, Gerontology and Metabolism, Stanford University. Dr. Basina is a clinical endocrinologist and clinical researcher with a focus on diabetes management, thyroid, and adrenal conditions. Her primary interests are in Type 1 Diabetes, Diabetes technology, and Diabetes in pregnancy. Dr. Basina is Board certified in Endocrinology and Internal Medicine. She received numerous teaching awards and Stanford Hospital award for excellence in patient care. She is an active member of medical advisory boards for several community diabetes organizations. Dr. Basina is a medical director of inpatient diabetes program at Stanford and a chair of diabetes task force.
Dr. Linda Nguyen is Clinical Professor, Medicine – Gastroenterology & Hepatology at Stanford University. “Food has always been a big part of my life. Imagine what life would be like if eating made you sick? Because we need food to survive and we are social creatures who revolve much of our lives around food, not being able to eat impacts physical, mental and social well-being. It is this intricate interconnection between the brain and the gut which drew me to the field of Neurogastroenterology & Motility. My research includes understanding the role/impact of physiologic testing on clinical care, exploring novel therapies for gastroparesis, and expanding the role of neuromodulation in the treatment of GI motility disorders and pain.”
Sunday, 24 October 2021, 5pm PDT: Diabetes Research Connection, San Diego, CAL
Spotlight on Differentiation in Different Types of Diabetes as well as other areas of research
Watch on Zoom: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/81100950992 (This event will be recorded)
Charles (C.C.) King is Board Chair/ President of the Diabetes Research Connection and is a Research Scientist who has helped define the molecular mechanisms of human embryonic stem cell differentiation from pluripotency toward pancreatic endoderm. He will be discussing their projects, including different types of diabetes (Yup, there are LOTS of “Types” and crossover!)
The different types have always fascinated me. The list keeps growing, and while it is interesting in a clinical way, I think we have to remember that all types are basically the same thing. People cannot process glucose. We still have one universal treatment; it works no matter the type or the severity of insulin resistance (insulin).
To me, that is the real news. Until something hits and hits big, that is the news.
