I'm Jeremy

and I am my #1!

My name is Jeremy and I am 14 years old. I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes when I was 5 1/2. I have lived with Diabetes for 8 years. I got very sick and went to the hospital when I was diagnosed. When I came home my school, friends and family helped me. We have raised money through auctions and walks to help find a cure. I have learned to manage my diabetes. I check my blood glucose level 6-8 times a day and take insulin to survive. I struggle to keep my glucose level not too high or too low. I was not familiar with diabetes before I got it but I have learned alot about how to treat myself until a cure is found. I go to a special Type 1 Diabetes camp each summer that helps kids with Diabetes. We have many activites like paintball, basketball, football, and attend skateparks and waterparks! All the kids go to movies, bowling, and dances too. We stay for 3 weeks and also have medical classes to learn how to manage our disease. I played Junior High football at school last year.
