My name is Lucy Ana Krasno and I am 60 years old. I was diagnosed with Diabetes in 1964 after being in a Diabetic coma for three days. I am a writer and have worked in the Medical Field and for different Business Corporations over the years. I don’t know what it’s like NOT to have Diabetes, since I’ve had it so long. All the credit for my care started with my mother and grandmother who were instrumental in my caregiving when I was growing up. I was taught that I could accomplish anything I wanted with Diabetes, and I am still here doing so.

I’m a sophomore at college and I’m majoring in General Biology with a minor in Human Biology. I have two dogs which I love and I’m a vegetarian. I’m the youngest sibling out of five and I love spending time with my family. I grew up with diabetes since I was 11 when I was diagnosed. I didn’t hide it, everyone I know knows that I have T1D, and I think that the people I know are understanding it and it really helped me. Especially when they ask questions to understand better and try to help me.

I DON’T like lobstahhh. Ekkk, I think they look like giant beetles. BUT, they are a free food! I don’t remember life without diabetes. I was diagnosed when I was four years old. I am living a life fueled by insulin and design. I am a university student where I am majoring in fine arts, and double minoring in business and graphic design! When I am not hitting the books or picking up a paint brush I am running my instagram blog @t1Design_, getting a cup of coffee or going for a run!

I did not grow up with my diabetes. However my brother was diagnosed as a type one diabetic in his teens. My endocrinologist believes that I had diabetes for 18 months before being diagnosed and treated. I have been on a plant based diet for a few years and live an extremely active lifestyle here in Colorado. Hiking, running, body weight training and tennis as my main activities.

I was diagnosed as a kid when I was 9 years old, so I grew up with diabetes. I don’t really remember a life with it, too much. I had an amazing medical team when I was diagnosed, so I’m really grateful for that. I learned how to do a lot independently as a kid, like checking my blood sugars, and giving myself injections. My parents did an amazing job taking care of me and supported me throughout. Being diagnosed at such a young age meant everything had an extra layer to it (think puberty, adolescence and teenage angst). At one point in middle school, I “hid” my diabetes by not going to the nurses office to check my blood sugar or give myself insulin. I didn’t want it to interfere with making friends at the new school I was in.

Humalog 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. Insulin is a hormone that works by lowering levels of glucose (sugar) in the blood. Humalog is used to improve blood sugar control in adults and children with diabetes type one.

I’m living with my girlfriend, her two kids and our 2 dogs in a house near Stuttgart. I’m working as a social worker since 25 years. In my job, I try to help kids and families to get along with their problems and difficult situations. In my free time I make german rap music since 1991. I work with kids and some young refugees from Syria and Afghanistan to create their own hiphop music.

After many years of poor self care and enduring many challenging diabetes complications, I am trying my hardest to take optimal care of my health. One of my biggest motivators is the blessing of my amazing 6 year old son. I was diagnosed at 12 years old with diabetes type 1 just 3 days shy of Halloween. For the first couple of years my diabetes was under strict control by my mother.
