When Lilly Jaffe was 1 month old, her parents discovered she had Type 1 diabetes. A very heavy and sad time for her parents, they tried to take control of her disease for years through injections and even an insulin pump. However, it still resulted with uncontrollable blood sugars and two seizures. Nothing seem to be helping them manage Lilly’s diabetes.
It wasn’t until Lilly’s father, Mike, heard a lecture from Dr. Louis Philipson about Monogenic Diabetes, a small percentage of Type 1’s who don’t need to take insulin but can control it with the help of a pill. Watch and learn about Monogenic Diabetes and how the pill allows Lilly to correct her own blood sugar today!
