Dear Friends,

Jothydev's Diabetes Gems Team is back with yet another exciting issue. With your blessings and support, we have reached the 90th month of publication, uninterrupted for more than 7 1/2 years.

Have you ever thought of patient acceptability and consistency of use of insulin pumps over a decade? You may read our review on insulin pump use - adding Indian experience to a global perspective. Is whey protein superior to other proteins in type 2 diabetes?

Other highlights include benefits of early use of insulin in type 2 diabetes, fear of bladder cancer associated with pioglitazone etc. JDC Updates and our regular columns-Gems picture, Gems video, Gems recipe etc. continue.

Thanking you once again for the comments and suggestions. If in case you are not interested in receiving this free monthly scientific newsletter, kindly reply with "delete gems" in the subject line to and also click the unsubscribe button at the bottom of this page.
