Season 3, Type 1 Diabetes

S3Ep14: Amplifying Black Type 1 Stories Part 2

Welcome back Type 1s and Nones!!! I knew you’d be back for Part 2 of the Ask Me About My Type 1 Season 3 Finale Special Series!!! In Part 2 I have on new friend Lauren and friend of the show Qiana Drew. In our conversations we talk about specific struggles that are entirely unique even with the Type 1 experience. Lauren tells us about her experiences being racially discriminated against by her medical care teams which kept her managing her Type 1 the way she wanted to. Qiana comes back to speak with us about her struggles with Diabulimia at a time when the term itself didn’t even exist. This one is full of tough but necessary conversations that our community should be having more.
