Welcome to the 100 club!!!
Type 1 diabetes is usually diagnosed in children and young adults, and was previously known as juvenile diabetes. Only 5% of people with diabetes have this form of the disease.
In type 1 diabetes, the body does not produce insulin. Insulin is a hormone that is needed to convert sugar, starches and other food into energy needed for daily life. With the help of insulin therapy and other treatments, even young children can learn to manage their condition and live long, healthy lives.

The Nightscout #WeAreNotWaiting Movement helps our family manage Type 1 Diabetes. We created the T1D 100 club to celebrate the small wins with those that understand the difficulty of managing carbs, insulin, A1c, mg/dL, glucose, pumps, CGMs, growing pains, learning curves, hormones, emotions, energy, and life in general. When we get a 100 mg/dL we shout, cheer, dance, and celebrate while the precious moment lasts. Then we move on and continue with life because #WeAreNotWaiting for a cure!
For Nightscout #WeAreNotWaiting Awareness and World Diabetes Nov 14th Awareness Day I have created this Google Doodle:
Please help spread the word because #WeAreNotWating
