I am so fortunate to be the parent of three beautiful children and a wife of nearly 16 years! In 2010, my young daughter was diagnosed as a Type 1 Diabetic. I hope you will be blessed and encouraged by honest and to the point thoughts and stories from the perspective of a Type 1 Diabetes parent. This isn't medical advice it's just my family's experiences, blogs and daily life living raising a child that has Type 1. I'm led to be a VOICE and to SHARE stories & ideas in efforts to communicate & reach out to other families going through similar things with this complicated disease and to help our loved ones understand. Raising AWARENESS helps RAISE FUNDING for projects and advancements that make lives better. This was also created to allow parents to vent, express thoughts, share their own story about current issues and relate. I WOULD love to hear your stories AND feature it here as a BLOG or under ARTICLES as a resource. FOLLOW ME @TYPE1PANCREAS
26 million Americans have Diabetes and most are Type 2. About 3 million of those are Type 1. Millions go undiagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes plus millions are pre-diabetic. Those with Diabetes face complications that can lead to death.
Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes are different but have common factors that relate to blood sugar so often we can use the same tools.
