I’m a teenager with T1D

My names Adriana. I’m 14 years old and I was diagnosed with diabetes August of last year. Recently I’ve noticed that I have been loosing my grip on diabetes and letting it get the better of me. So I was wondering if their are any other teenagers who would like to communicate and support each other. I think it would help me out and a lot others if the support was there. :slight_smile:


Hi! I am Brynn and I am also 14 I was just recently diagnosed in January. I would love to talk to someone else about diabetes and just regular life!


I would love to talk to you! If you have Snapchat mine is adrianagardner 1

Hey Adriana!! I’m Abby; I’m 17 years old and I’ve had T1D since I was 7.
First of all–I’m so glad you’ve found this website! It’s a great place to ask questions, give advice, and connect with other PWD. Welcome!
I have several group chats of teens with T1D, and I would love to add you to one. Pm me and we can exchange contact info! I can’t wait to chat with you.

Hi @AdrianaTheDiabetic, I’m 26 but I’m launching a T1D podcast in the next couple weeks with my 16-year-old co-host. I can put you in touch with her if you’d like. She’s had diabetes for 8 years. Both of us are frustrated with the lack of support networks in our area and want to build a better community around it.

my daughter is 15 and would like to have help maybe I can give you her snap chat?

Oh I would love to talk to her! My Snapchat is adrianagardner1
