Trey

Hi! My name is Trey and I am 10 years old. I love playing on computers. I am in the 4th grade and I live in Mississippi. I have two sisters, Blair and Sarah. I have a dog named Pete.

 

One Sunday after church, I passed out. My Mom and sister was very upset and said I was only out for a few seconds. This is why my Mom took me to the doctor the next morning. My doctor told me I had to go to the hospital because I had type 1 diabetes. I felt fine, but my blood sugar was over 300. The doctors found out early that I am diabetic. My Mom said some kids get really sick and I was very lucky. The doctors gave me insulin and told me I had to check my blood sugar before I eat and my Mom checks when I am sleeping.

 

I have been wearing a insulin pump for a few years now. That is so much better than a shot every time I want to eat something. I don't let diabetes get in my way. I love playing outside and running around.
