When you're throwing a party at the Grand Lodge in Hunt Valley for about 300 titled "Live the Good Life," but you're also raising money to fight diabetes, what do you feed the guests? At the annual gala for the American Diabetes Association, there was a surf and turf dinner with no heavy sauces. "We're serving menu items that are relatively healthy, but we don't want people to feel deprived," explained Kathy Rogers, Maryland-area American Diabetes Association executive director. After dinner, there was another healthy activity - exercise, in the form of dancing to the music of a 25-member band made up of mental health professionals.

As 7-year-old Zara Cheek packed her bags for her first sleep-away camp this summer, she found herself looking forward to more than just swimming, going on hikes and eating S'mores for two glorious weeks. To her, the experience meant a chance to live like a normal kid for a while - and even, quite possibly, to help thousands of others afflicted with the illness that has shaped her life. Zara, who lives in West Baltimore and started third grade this fall, is one of about 2 million Americans who suffer from Type 1 diabetes, a chronic and potentially lethal disorder of the pancreas that leaves the body unable to make insulin or turn blood sugar into the energy it needs.

On Charles Street, inside the Belvedere Galleria, a company run from a small office offers cash for people's leftover diabetes strips, the tiny tabs used to test glucose levels, which are crucial to managing the disease. An Internet search for "sell diabetes strips" turns up numerous websites offering to buy the strips via mail. The demand for more affordable strips — some brands cost $1 each and the typical testing regimen runs three times a day — has created what some call a "gray" market for reselling them.

The American Diabetes Association (ADA) and Bon Secours Baltimore Health System applaud the good work of the Baltimore City Health Department's initiative, Healthy Baltimore 2015. An alarming statistic, however, is the drastic increase in emergency room visits for diabetes and hypertension and the widening gap in racial disparities for this metric. Diabetes is twice as likely to affect African Americans and Hispanics as it is non-Hispanic whites, but as Dr. Oxiris Barbot states, where we live, work, learn and play also affect health outcomes to a large degree ("Baltimore is getting healthier, but still has a way to go," Oct. 21)

Days after undergoing gastric bypass surgery, Brenda Maker's diabetes was gone — her body producing enough of the hormone insulin to turn sugar into fuel. It's a phenomenon seen in recent years by doctors who increasingly are using the operation not only to help patients lose weight and improve their health generally but specifically to address the national epidemic of Type 2 diabetes. Now some researchers at the University of Maryland believe their work may explain why the surgery succeeds, and how a common drug may be used to induce similar effects.

Charlie Kimball was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in 2007, news that upended his personal and professional life. But the 27-year-old English-born, California-raised open-wheel racing veteran didn't just work to get his career back on track, he's worked to inspire others. For his efforts, Kimball recently earned a Jefferson Award, a national public service award co-founded in 1972 by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, U.S. Senator Robert Taft Jr. and Sam Beard.

Two of Baltimore's most recognizable landmarks will be lit up in blue Monday in honor of World Diabetes Day — a commemoration inspired by a 16-year-old girl's desire to draw attention to the prevalent disease. The Washington Monument in Mount Vernon and the Bromo Seltzer Arts Tower will be illuminated Monday evening. Blue is the color of the globally recognized symbol for diabetes, a circle. The city granted the request by Amanda Witherspoon, a Garrison Forest School sophomore who was diagnosed six years ago with Type 1 diabetes, an autoimmune disease that can damage victims' eyes, kidneys, heart and blood vessels, and nerves.
