Transcend Warrior – Andrea Huerta

My Story:

I was recently diagnosed in May of 2019. It was really scary. I thought I wasn’t going to be able to do and eat my favorite things, but I didn’t want this to control my life so I do my normal favorite activities. I camp and hike and eat pizza when I want! It’s amazing to meet new people who I can bond with! Knowing you’re not alone and meeting people randomly because of type one diabetes, it’s incredible!

My Health Details:

Type 1 Diabetes

Low blood sugar instances per week:1-3

Daily number of times checking blood sugar: 7+

Managing Diabetes with: Insulin Shots
