This week, living and thriving for 75 years with type 1 diabetes. Diagnosed in 1941, Judy Ball has seen incredible changes in diabetes management. There was a time before home monitoring when doctors weren’t sure people with diabetes could be trusted to even check their own blood sugar. We talk about how World War II affected Judy’s initial care, her doctor’s connection to Banting & Best.. the scientists who unlocked the key to insulin, and how her great-nephew who also has type 1.. helped her change her routine.

Plus, a follow up on last week’s guest, Broadway performer Maddy Trumble and a little bit about Stacey’s son managing diabetes during his first middle school play.
