The 3s #003: Cheating On My Wife (With Junk Food)
Most of the dialogue about type 1 diabetes is between people who have it, but what about those close to us who are affected by T1D too, the endearingly nicknamed “Type 3s?” The 3s offers the opportunity for them to join the conversation too in one-on-one interviews with the T1D in their life.
Blanca and Luis met in their home country of Venezuela eight years ago but, after moving to Florida, Blanca started exhibiting symptoms of high blood sugar. She was initially misdiagnosed with type 2 diabetes but, when her blood sugars stayed high, she did some research and figured out she probably had LADA: latent autoimmune diabetes in adults.
