Diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes 35 years ago, Joan Reder is enrolled in the Star 3 Clinical Trial at Scripps Whittier Diabetes Institute. As part of the trial, she now has a digital insulin pump with a sensor to monitor her glucose levels. She used to take up to 7 insulin shots a day to manage her blood sugar. Today, that’s down to one every three days. Research like this is helping patients transform the way they manage their diabetes every day.
