My lovely daughter Lauren developed Type 1 Diabetes when she was 15 years old, an autoimmune disease in which a person’s pancreas loses the ability to produce insulin—a hormone essential to turn the food we eat into the energy we need to sustain life. T1D strikes both children and adults suddenly and is unrelated to diet and lifestyle. It requires constant carbohydrate counting, blood-glucose testing and lifelong dependence on insulin, whether inhaled, pumped or injected. It is a leading cause of blindness, kidney, heart, and circulatory disease. It’s really not fun!
