Category: Confessions of A Born-Again Diabetic

In May, 2012 my transplanted pancreas stopped making insulin after working perfectly for 14 years. That’s longer than average for a transplanted pancreas. I went from being a “former diabetic” to being a diabetic again. This blog explores all the emotions and physical details of having Type 1 Diabetes again after 14 years of freedom from it. It is at times serious and humorous. It also compares how treatment for the condition has changed since 1998. The “born-again” is a light-hearted way of labeling myself as someone who has been through this before. The blog will also follow my progress as I go through the steps to be listed for a second pancreas transplant. I hope you will follow the blog and share it with any diabetic friends and family members.
