My journey at Seton Hall with Type 1 Diabetes

From the age of four years old, I was not only learning how to ride a bike and to read, I was also learning how to test my blood sugar and give myself insulin shots. Type 1 Diabetes is an autoimmune disease in which the body attacks the islet cells on the pancreas – cells that produce one of the body’s most important and necessary hormones: insulin. Insulin combines with sugar in our blood to give us energy. My body cannot produce any...
