Shop T1dLife to spread awareness

As a designer by trade, I couldn't contain my daily inpsiration from Coral and desire to spread more awareness of T1d since so many people confuse it with Type 2 diabetes. That's why I finally decided to sell my graphic designs on clothing, accessories and homegoods on Zazzle.com/t1dlife. I hope to educate the general public of Type 1 diabetes with shirts like T1dTruth. I set an individual commission for each item I design and earn royalties each time it's sold on Zazzle. They print and ship most items direct from California. Select royalties will go towards gifting other T1dfamilies. I'd much prefer to donate diabetic related items or supplies versus donating money to JDRF or ADA. Don't forget to follow @type1diabetic_life on Instagram and @typeonediabeticlife on Facebook. Mahalo in advance for your support!

Here are a few recently designed items available on Zazzle.com/t1dlife. You can pick any style and color item you would like my graphic printed on:

Fiasp First Try

We finally got our new Endo to prescribe us Fiasp! For those who don’t know, Fiasp (fee-asp) is the latest and fastest mealtime insulin manufactured by Novo Nordisk available in a FlexTouch Pen or vial. It is advised that you take the same safety precautions before using Fiasp as you would any other fast-acting insulin such as Novolog or Humalog. Fiasp is considered a rapid insulin because it contains the addition of niacinamide (vitamin B3) and a formulation-stabilizing amino acid (L-Arginine). B3 increases speed of initial absorption while amino acid aids in the stabilization of the formulation.
Our First Try She was over 300 before dinner - ideal for testing this out. No thanks to "low" binge eating in the car while I was driving after leaving the Spring Festival with a cup full of treats. I didn’t wanna give her a full pre-bolus for the snacks since she ran around so much at the playground, but I stacked her insulin as needed. We were soon on our way to pick up her Fisa…

Swimming with T1d

It's been a late, wet, and chilly winter for those of us in Los Angeles, California. If you've read our About Us page, you would know that we were used to living in a warmer tropical climate and spent most of our days at the beach. We started using the Dexcom G5 continuous glucose monitor in April of 2016 and have perfected our very own personal technique of keeping it on through sunscreen, sweat, pool, rain and bubble baths. We use a similar technique called the Tegaderm Sandwich for keeping her Animas OneTouch Ping insulin pump through those same challenges. Read on for more tips on swimming with a Dexcom and pump.



We've acclimated to living in the bustling city of Los Angeles and now prefer swimming in our resort style heated pool and jacuzzi during the Summer over the sediment-rich, cold, mysterious, and kelp-filled oceans here.

Don't even get me started if you live on the east coast or mid-west. Nothing compares to the year-round warm weather and clean waters of H…

Our Diagnosis Story

Coral was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes on Friday, March 11, 2016 at nearly 16 months of age. Three days prior, I had noticed she was very lethargic, peeing heavy diapers, wetting her bed, and super thirsty. I never knew these were classic signs of T1d - nobody ever tells you that! I had emailed her pediatrician Thursday evening with my concerns. Friday at 8:00am PST, Dr. Quensell calls and asks, "Where are you?" I put my fork down and struggled to swallow a bite of sunny-side-up eggs. "Just finishing up breakfast," I replied hesitantly. "I need to see Coral right now," and we hung up the phone. My husband, Weiran, was just about to leave for work with his foot out the door. I told him, "That was Dr. Quensell, it isn't good. You should come with us."

We packed her diaper bag with one change of clothes without knowing what to expect. Dr. Quensell's office at Kapiolani Medical Center for Women & Children was fully scheduled that da…
