Meet Rodny Aquino
Rodny Aquino was diagnosed September 2016 at the age of 18 years old. He
experienced excessive thirst, tiredness, bad circulation, weakness, and weight loss, like most!
Rodny shares, “I would say my diabetes is pretty well managed. I also think that I now know how my body tends to react to certain foods.” Rodny is currently on pen injections.
A helpful tip would be to always anticipate the Extreme scenarios, because when you do so you are always prepared for the unexpected! Don’t be scared of them, just learn how to handle them if things do end up going wrong!
T1DJ November Featured Spotlight
Rodny Aquino, Florida
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.
