S2Ep.09 Type 1 Family Matters

By Walt Drennan

Oh hi! I'm back from fall break and SO ready to give you the A's to all your Q's!! And just in time for the first Monday of National Diabetes Awareness Month. In honor of said Type 1 themed month, I have for you a family episode of Ask Me About My Type 1. Much like Type 1, Family is always there, they can be kind of annoying sometimes, and there is no cure. The typical Type 1 story is that of parents or siblings learning to support their Type 1 who is still and child and under their constant care.  But what happens when your Type 1 is all grown up and already out of the house? Well, that's where my Type 1 guest Andrea and her sister Type None sister Jackie come in: Andrea was an adult and not even on the same side of the country as her sister Jackie and the rest of her family when she was diagnosed. It's a perspective on the adult Type 1 experience that I had never heard before so I had to share it with all of you. It's family night on Ask Me About My Type 1 Dia-Peoples so find your seat at the family dinner table and don't forget to pre-bolus because mom made dessert! And yes, Type 1 did do that...
