When you’re a parent with diabetes, your kids often learn about diabetes before they can read or write. They know you might beep or take shots or wear a CGM and they often become diabetes helpers in serious circumstances. This week, Dr. Phyllisa Deroze talks about why she wrote a new book “Diabetes Helpers.” Dr. Deroze began blogging at DiagnosedNOTdefeated.com almost immediately after being diagnosed with diabetes in 2011. The following year she founded Black Diabetic Info; a website dedicated to helping close gaps of cultural incompetence around diabetes information.
