An Accidental Type 1 Diagnosis

Type 1 diabetes was that last diagnosis Karen Schiavoni ever thought she’d have. But with an intuition that her body just wasn’t feeling right and a number of diabetic symptoms, Karen discovered she had type 1 diabetes by accident.

With a husband who had diabetes, Karen began testing herself and discovered that her blood sugars were low and over a matter of several months they kept getting higher and higher. Watch how she describes her type 1 diagnosis, how type 1 diabetes differs from type 2 diabetes, and how to manage it and still live a normal life!
