Meet Kylene Redmond. Kylene was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 2010 at the age of 29, now 38. Kylene shares, “I went to the hospital for that I thought was food poisoning”.  She controls her diabetes “pretty well”
Best Practices
Manage your diabetes based off of you. Diabetes is not an one size fits all. What work for others doesn’t necessarily work for you.  Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Ask as many as you want. Remember, you will have good and bad days.
Success story
Kylene is the DC Metro chapter leader for T1international #insulin4all and cohost of Chatting w/ everyday diabetics podcast.

I was diagnosed at the age of 12 years old, now 18.

My passion is a driving force in my life and I will never allow a challenge to get in the way of achieving my dreams.  When I was diagnosed I knew  this challenge would be a part of my life.

I have had type 1 since age 7; diagnosed and treated at CCHMC. Today, I have an insulin pump to better control and 2 awesome  kids. It can definitely be helpful for people to see that with a little work,  life can be fairly normal for type 1's.
