Glossary of Diabetic Terms



I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in November 1956 at the age of 18 months. At the time it was believed that I was the youngest known diagnosed case of diabetes. I am not a doctor nor have I had any medical training. I do not profess to be an expert or have any special knowledge about diabetes. My intent is to share a little of my life's story with you and a few things I have learned along the way.
