Type 1 Diabetes

I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at age 11. It is important for everyone to be aware of the symptoms of Diabetes and to seek medical attention if you or someone you know is exhibiting them. Look for extreme thirst, extremely frequent urination, and excessive fatigue. The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation website has a great explanation of Type 1 Diabetes, and rather than bore you with my less-than-stellar explanation, please just head over there! Feel free to e-mail me with any Diabetes related questions, but please keep in mind that I am not a medical professional, and while I do blog about my experiences as a person living with Type 1 Diabetes this should not be taken as medical advice.
