Happy Valentine's Day, Dears.

Especially for us PWDs, a few V-day treats without the actual glucose:
* Sharing. This week's edition of Grand Rounds, the medical blogging roundup, features a "Give Me Some Sugar" theme. No actual consumption involved. Oh, except for Kim over at EmergiBlog. (If it weren't Love Day, I might be tempted to ring those chocolate-stained necks)
NEWSFLASH: FDA Clears Dexcom Share Direct
Dexcom gets regulatory approval of its 'on-the-go' mobile apps for CGM data-sharing.
Snail Uses Insulin to Poison Fish
New study shows these slow-moving creatures use toxic form of insulin to capture prey.
A New Square Patch Insulin Pump
TouchéMedical's new Bluetooth-enabled patch pump is supposedly the world's smallest and cheapest.
* Empathy. Diabetes is hard work. So sometimes we just don't do it. The newest edition of Straight Up with Amy over at dLife.com spotlights those stumbling blocks, yet again.
* Love and Diabetes. Read Terry B's touching sentiments on what it means to be a partner of a PWD.
* Or Go for the Sex. No carbs, no calories. And good sex means good health. Enjoy!
