My name is Christina (aka Cria) and I was diagnosed with diabetes on August 5, 2006 at 27 years old. At the time I was told I was Type 2 but I know now that I am Type 1, more specifically LADA (Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults) which is treated like Type 1. This blog is written to help educate non-diabetics about life as a Type 1 diabetic. I hope you enjoy and make sure you subscribe below to get an email whenever there is a new blog!
