Giulia's, Paolo's daughter, diabetes story
After being diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at the age of 3, Giulia managed to control her glucose levels with the use of an insulin pump.
Real life stories
Giulia was 3 years old when she was diagnosed with Type I diabetes. It was like facing a storm at sea. At the beginning she suffered a lot from extreme glucose variability. The thing we feared most was nocturnal hypoglycaemia. Giulia had two bad episodes of hypoglycaemia during the night, and that scared us a lot. Because of this, her diabetologist suggested to switch from multiple daily injections to insulin pump therapy. Soon, she was able to start managing her insulin therapy by herself. We always wanted her to feel and behave as much as possible like other children of her age, and her insulin pump has helped her to do this.
