Apidra is an injection that contains insulin glulisine. Insulin is a hormone that works by lowering levels of glucose (sugar) in the blood. Insulin glulisine is a fast-acting insulin that starts to work about 15 minutes after injection, peaks in about 1 hour, and keeps working for 2 to 4 hours. Apidra is used to improve blood sugar control in adults and children with diabetes.

I was born and raised in South Carolina. I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes on January 13th 1988, attended college in North Carolina, was a golf professional for 10 years, got married to my now husband in July 2013 and I am in the process of adopting 2 kids through our local County Agency. We live on just over 4 acres in Woodstock, Georgia, participate in our local community in several ways and attend church at Ebenezer UMC.

I was diagnosed when I was 11 months. I managed very poorly. I was resentful. My sister got it as well and we were the only diabetics we knew growing up. It was scary and hard for my mom to handle on her own with no support, and having kids who know what they need to do but most of the time just wouldn’t was very exhausting. Hid it when I could, but people figured it out regardless.
