Meet Daniella katz

Team Celebrating Life

Daniella Katz is 16 years old and her favorite hobby is gymnastics. At the age of 13 Daniella was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. She had been drinking so much water, eating up to three slices of pizza a meal and still losing weight without getting full. One day she was so tired that she could not even get u or take a shower. Paramedics said her blood sugar was over 500. Her daily life is focused on keeping her blood sugar stable, especially before exercise.

Throughout the night Danielle sometimes awakens and her parents will be there helping her with juice boxes and support.
