Type 1 diabetes and Celiac Disease

Something to seriously think about! Getting tested for celiac disease if you have type 1 diabetes.

Diabetes goes hand in hand with way to many diseases if you ask me, it is important to see your doctors regular.

TELUS Walk to Cure Diabetes

I got to work this morning a received a very generous donation from the Local 27 Carpenters Union towards the TELUS Walk to Cure Diabetes. This is my 4th year participating with my parents and husband, last year one of  my Sister-in -laws and Mother-in-law joined us as well along with my nephew Noah. I am feeling the love today since I just stared my blog yesterday made me feel very excited and motivated to post again today and share my journey with everyone.

Please see the link below if you wish to donate or participate.

Type 1 vs Type 2

I find its hard for people to understand the difference between Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes and often wonder why they are not two different diseases. I found this article on the JDRF website which helps explain the differences.


Hi my name is Justine Iannuzzi, I was diagnosed with Type One Diabetes when I was 19 years old, hard to believe 7 years ago I thought my life was over. Here I am today years later wondering where my path will take me. I have learned over the years not to take Diabetes personally, and started this blog today to help me remember my good days and reflect on the bad days to help myself and hopefully others to better manager diabetes.
