We at DANII are always looking to encourage people with diabetes, instill a sense of empowerment, and foster greater understanding of this disease as well as the people who live with it and/or work toward its cure. Who better to encourage everyday people with diabetes than other everyday people with diabetes? But every Ty1d story is different, so we want to know your story.

This is what we’re looking for right now:

  • Has any aspect of your faith hindered your diabetes management? If so, how did you resolve it?
  • Has bariatric surgery helped you improve your diabetes management? Tell us about it.
  • Has a major weight loss improved your prediabetes/diabetes management? Share the details! Pictures welcome.
  • Are you managing multiple health conditions? How have you been able to handle diabetes and one or more other major conditions?
