November is Diabetes Awareness Month (Type 1 Diabetes)

The photo is of my daughter Allison who was diagnosed with T1D on March 23, 2014 at the age of 15. Type 1 diabetes is where the pancreas stops working and the person can no longer produce insulin.  A person with T1D would die without insulin.  My daughter takes multiple injections per day, she uses a pump which is inserted into her belly to deliver insulin to her body.  She uses a continuous glucouse monitor which is also inserted into her belly.  T1D is a disease that doesn't discriminate, the person who gets T1D did NOT cause it by eating sugar!!  T1D is not curable at this time.  Please take some time to learn the differences between Type 1 Diabetes and Type 2.  Help by supporting JDRF, help them find a cure!

Great job on pointing out what month it is.  I have Type 2 and keep a close watch on mine.

Thank you for sharing your post. It is tough to watch anything that goes on with our kids, we would rather see it be happening to us. It sounds like your daughter is doing all the right things to keep her diabetes in check.

I a m sorry to hear this Cynthia, I hope that with the aggressive treatment she is receiving that some of the effects of this disease can be reduced for her.

Thank you Bob!  My daughter is doing better but it is day by day for sure.  Diabetes is mean disease but she is a warrior!
