Arizona native Paloma Kemak was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes as an adult at the age of 23. Beginning a new lifestyle at an age where she thought she already knew it all was extremely difficult. From that point forward it has been her mission to change the way people see diabetes and that’s how Glitter Glucose was born on instagram and Youtube! Paloma shares her life as a T1D while simultaneously having a career in the fashion industry, traveling, and volunteering with diabetic organizations in the community. You can find her online at or on instagram @glitterglucose
