Local Nine–year–old is dealing with diabetes
To the Editor:
My name is Breann Edwards. I am nine years old. I have Type I Juvenile Diabetes. I receive insulin through an insulin pump. When I exercise it helps produce more insulin and may lower my blood sugars. If my blood sugars get too low I need sugar. I check my blood six times a day. I change my pump every other day. I have had Diabetes for eight years going on nine. My Mom is Emily Edwards. My Dad is Shawn Edwards. My Brother is Joey Edwards. My family lives here in Madison.
