Basis was diagnosed with type 1 at age nine back in the 1980s. It was a time before home blood glucose meters, let alone pumps and CGMs.

He shares how he manages T1D during auditions and on the set and of course we talk about Mrs. Maisel! I had questions about the fashion, the plot, all night shoots and how this final season ends.
