Taking on Type 1 Diabetes – Brody’s story

At TMC we treat children that are newly diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes or who are dealing with complications.

When a child or teenager is diagnosed with diabetes, the entire family faces many challenges. The interdisciplinary Diabetes Team provides individualized care and attention and includes pediatric endocrinologists, diabetes educators, intensivists, hospitalists, nurses and dietitians who are here to help families cope with all of the questions, concerns and transitions related to diabetes.

Our goal is to help children and teenagers with diabetes feel healthy. We would like them to see themselves as a person first, and as a person with diabetes second.

As you listen to Brody’s story, read Ella’s story, or Katie’s take on being a parent to a child with diabetes, take a moment to think about the child first, not as patients.

We can help make their challenges less so that diabetes does not win, to support them as they meet the challenges that living with diabetes presents.

How can we help?

We can help by supporting them as they go through challenges by making their experience as pleasant as possible, and by supporting research for a cure.
