Understanding Type 1 Diabetes

Raising awareness about diabetes is important especially to those who don’t know much about this growing disease. This amazing Type 1 teen tells us her experience when she was first diagnosed at 11-years-old. Unaware of why she was constantly thirsty, taking bathroom breaks, and losing weight, all signs pointed to Type 1 diabetes.

Watch as she describes going from needles to pens to the insulin pump and the struggles she had growing up with diabetes at school. She believes there needs to be more education of diabetes within schools and amongst friends so others with diabetes won’t have to go through the trials and tribulations she went through.
