- Diabetes 360 – Season 2 - Episode 6 Renira Narrandes is a South African-Canadian storyteller, poet, and speaker who lives with type 1 diabetes. Her stories are generally humorous—though occasionally, she reaches in and pulls out something heavy from deep within. Despite being detail-oriented and methodical, Renira will admit she doesn’t always know where her path is going. Her journey so far has included three master’s degrees (journalism, science, public health), two life-changing events, and one near-death experience. You can find Renira’s spoken word poem about hypoglycemia on YouTube and check out her poetry and photography on Instagram @words_by_renira.

From the artificial pancreas to islet transplants and beyond - should we be using the c-word (cure) just yet?

Learn about his latest studies and how his team are working with pump and CGM technologies for active people with type 1 diabetes. Interested in Dr. Riddell's book?
