Posted by tony on Wed, 05/07/2014 - 07:36 in

In a series of 12 episodes, diabetes community leaders and newlyweds Tony and Diane Cervati are addressing various topics focusing on relationship and family dynamics with diabetes. Tony, founder of the Type1Rider organization, has been living with diabetes for 37 years. Diane, founder of the Blue Heel Society, met Tony shortly after her son was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 2010.

In the sixth episode, Tony and Diane discuss life beyond type 1 diabetes in their day-to-day family life. While type 1 diabetes is obviously a part of everyday life for the Cervatis, with two members of the family having diabetes, Tony and Diane explain how it is not the focal point of their lives. Diabetes doesn’t stop them from just being a normal family.
