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:

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…

Blue November

November is diabetes awareness month and I'd like to kick it off by referring you to A) Our Diagnosis Story and B) A fact each day about diabetes particularly pertaining to Type 1 diabetes. The best thing anyone can do to support a loved one or someone they know who has any type of diabetes is to take the initiative to learn more. I cannot stress that enough. Then, perhaps they will actually know what to say and how to be genuinely supportive.

You'll find these daily posts on Instagram @type1diabetic_life where you may share and tag @type1diabetic_life when reposting to your own profile. I'll be updating this blog post and adding a new one every Sunday to recap each week of #diabetesawareness throughout the month of November. Starting with the following: A post shared by T1dlife (@type1diabetic_life) on Nov 1, 2017 at 8:48pm PDT

Aloha Kakou

Aloha Kakou!
"Welcome everyone" (in Hawaiian) to my blog where you'll find useful information on managing Type 1 diabetes in a fun, honest, and practical way. Life is already complicated as it is and having T1d or a toddler with T1d makes it 10 times more challenging. I'm a realist due to all the hardships I've dealt with in the past and that definitely sets the tone for this blog. However, you will also see other cheerful influences from my Hawaii upbringing and passion for design and surfing in some of the content featured. Read more About Us.



We are a family of three currently residing in Los Angeles, CA as of August 2016. It was a big and reluctant move from Oahu, but you gotta go where the money's at to survive. Jobs in Hawaii don't pay enough to compensate for the cost of living. Diabetic supplies are a recurring expense and T1d's are insulin-dependent for life - no known cure available because big pharma's suck. After you get hit with the …
