#48 Stimuli Responsive Glucagon and T1D Research with Dr. Matthew Webber
Episode 48 of The Sugar Mama's Podcast features Dr. Matthew Webber, an associate professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering at the University of Notre Dame. He is currently in charge of a team that is studying, among other things, stimuli responsive glucagon. This emergency glucagon or "smart glucagon" as I like to call it is a gel based technology that is injected into the body. It is able to sense when blood sugar levels are dropping to a dangerously low range and release glucagon in response to that. In other words, it has the ability to raise blood sugar levels automatically to treat lows in insulin dependent  patients such as those living with type 1 diabetes. Research like this is amazing to me and I can't wait for you to hear all about. When your done, if you want to know more about what Dr. Webber and his team are doing in their research lab, you can check them out on the Webber Lab website.

#47 Type 1 Diabetes THE MUSICAL
I am, and have always been, one of those people who goes around singing songs that match whatever circumstance I find myself in. Sometimes the lyrics are already perfect for the situation at hand and sometimes I change them a little bit to make a parody. When my daughter was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, naturally this "habit" of mine came right alongside me as we bolused for meals, changed devices, and dealt with the highs and lows that are just inevitable with being insulin dependent. Thus, Type 1 Diabetes THE MUSICAL was born and today I want to share it with you, listeners of The Sugar Mama's Podcast! In this episode, I sing my way (yes, you get to hear me sing) through each and every one of these songs. Type 1 Diabetes the Musical has 9 categories or scenes that I organized the nearly 40 songs into. Below you will find a written list of these categories and songs as well as a link to the Spotify Playlist where you can listen to all of these songs in ordered or shuffled.
