Diabetes - @typetra_1

“My name is Giulia Petrolo and I'm diabetic type 1 since 2001. I was 9 when I was diagnosed. My mum was worried because I lost weight and I was always thirsty, unfortunately she was right. The teenage years were horrible and I had a lot of problems with food. Now that I'm 27, I decided to not care what people could think and start using the Omnipod insulin pump and the Dexcom for continuous glucose monitor. Summer and beach days are near and I will start a new life by living my disease in freedom and trying to accept the good may also exist in something as heavy as a chronic illness.” @typetra_1
