The Doctors: Type 1 Diabetes Cured
Over one million people in the U.S. have type 1 diabetes, the majority of whom are diagnosed as children. Gina had to plan her life around severe diabetes, that she believed would one day take her life too soon. At age nine she was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes after her blood sugar levels were found to be so high that she was rushed to a hospital. Early in college, she began having severely low blood sugar episodes that required an immediate injection or else she would die. About six years ago, after several seizures, she noticed a brochure on her coffee table about a clinical trial for diabetes.
