AvatarI was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes on June 15th, 2006; about 5 months shy of my 40th birthday. They call it Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults (LADA). I’m doing the only thing that can be done; living with it and managing the risks.

I am an information security analyst at a large pharmaceutical firm located in the Princeton, NJ area. I am also a web developer and Linux/UNIX/OS X/Perl/PHP/AJAX geek. Jack of all trades ( and master of none ). I love technology and how it empowers human beings to do the most incredible things but hate it when it is used to enslave or limit.

When not entertaining my employers with the security equivalent of TPS reports, I spend most of my free time researching new programming and security technologies. In the past I have been a heavy Linux user but recently have found myself in love with OS X.

I am also an amateur (idiot with a camera) photographer, beer and coffee enthusiasts ( I love a good Belgian Ale and Ethiopian Harrar ), father of two and a husband.

  1. BTW, Lili at http://lilipond.blogspot.com/ is also a LADA person. She is on my blogroll. What I probably have in common with both of you guys is the fact that I am very responsive to insulin, although I have had Dfor 45 years! I only use about 15U per day. That book you show here – “Think like a Pancreas” is really good. The best of all those I have read.


  2. I work at dLife and I was wondering if you would like to be added to our diabetes blogger email list? Every week we send a fun video clip about diabetes. If you are interested, please contact me at urbahn at dlife dot com. Thanks!


  3. Hi Khurt,

    I just read part of your blog after doing a search on Linkedin for Type 1 people or JDRF affiliated individuals and wanted to make a suggestion. I too was diagnosed later in life (age 27) with Type 1 diabetes and went on a pump 6 months after diagnoses – Life is 10x easier to manage on a pump – the lows aren’t as severe and my A1Cs are in the middle to high 5’s – seriously. Please email me if you are interested in it – I would highly recommend it.


  4. I’ve added you to my links.

    Hey, we both live/work in the same area. I live in Old Bridge and work in Princeton on Rt. 1. I’m having trouble finding a GOOD Dr that will take the time to discuss type II treatment options with me. Do you know of any?

    I just recently went from an a1c of less than 6 to 8.1 and am looking for all the help I can get.

    Thanks for the info on your blog. It’s very helpful.
