T1D is a family disease. Our family has learned how to recognize and treat a low blood sugar. We make decisions about what to eat and when. We monitor blood sugars 24 hours a day. Henry’s sister also helps. She watches his numbers while they play and distracts Henry during site changes.
Part of Henry’s pancreas may not be functioning, but he’s got a village of support replicating (as close as humanly possible) what his beta cells once did.
Beyond Type 1 is celebrating #Who Do You Love? on their Instagram wall. Of course, Ava is a great addition to #teampancreas.When it comes to diabetes, there’s not a lot to celebrate; however, the way family and friends rally with support and understanding is something to honor.
