I am a 15 year old living with juvenile type 1 diabetes, and I am wanting to help bring some awareness to my disease. AMA!
Edit 2: I am back and will continue answering questions until I go to bed later tonight!
Edit 1: I have to clean my room and eat dinner. I will be back to answer more questions later tonight!
As the title says, I am a 15 year old living with type 1 diabetes. I have had diabetes for going on 5 years now, and would love to raise some awareness about this disease. I feel like there are a lot of misconceptions when it comes to type 1 diabetes. Some of those misconceptions stem from the confusion between type 1 and type 2. So, I would also like to clear any confusion there.
I will begin answering questions at 3:30 central time. Ask me anything you would like!
