DBS_Blog_DTOP_Belowtitle_336x280

Fifteen-year-old DJ is just like any other teen who loves listening to music, hang out with friends, and reading, but there’s one thing that he deals with that the rest of them don’t, his type 2 diabetes. Before DJ was diagnosed he was gaining about 30 to 40 pounds a year and when he found out he had diabetes he wasn’t sure what was going to happen with his help.

Watch as DJ describes how his diagnosis has taught him to cut back on high carb and sugary foods and how he’s grown to like healthier foods and feels much better with the change. Way to go DJ!
