Cypress mother advocates with campaign to differentiate diabetes symptoms from viruses like COVID
“If a person with diabetes isn’t receiving insulin, then they can develop a life-threatening condition called diabetic ketoacidosis, or DKA. …It causes stomach pain, nausea, vomiting, tiredness, lethargy, sometimes it can cause rapid or heavy breathing, and if it’s severe it can lead to the point of confusion or even unconsciousness,” DeSalvo said.

From Heartache to Hope: Mother Pens Memoir After Tragic Loss
A Madison-area mother uses the grief from a personal tragedy to write a top-selling Amazon memoir, called 'Jesse Was Here.'
"You know when Jesse passed away, everybody was so afraid of the topic within the community.

I mean everyone was so scared; nobody was talking about it 10 years ago, and you flash-forward, you have two huge organizations, they fully support the program, the Jesse Was Here," she says.
Those two organizations include co-founder Nick Jonas' Beyond Type One and JDRF.
Harvard-Bound McCallie Grad Doesn’t Let Type 1 Diabetes Define Him
Gus Buck, 19, isn’t defined by his type 1 diabetes. In fact, this Harvard-bound McCallie alum has a long list of accolades you could define him in several other ways: graduate of McCallie School, recipient of the 2020 Grayson Medal, student body president, co-salutatorian, volunteer fire fighter, cheerleader and history buff.
It’s because of his accomplishments and refusal to let his type 1 diabetes control his life that he’s been awarded a $5,000 scholarship through Diabetes Scholars
, a program of nonprofit organization Beyond Type 1, as he prepares to continue his studies. He’s been granted a gap year by Harvard, and this year will work with his former history teacher to conduct research for an upcoming book, as well as volunteer with Historicorps in Colorado to help repair historical buildings and national parks.
Diabetes highlights two Americas: One where COVID is easily beaten, the other where it’s often devastating
In East L.A., many patients didn't have insurance even before the pandemic. Now, with widespread layoffs, even fewer do. They live in "food deserts," lacking a car or gas money to reach a grocery store stocked with fresh fruits and vegetables. They can't stay home, because they're essential workers in grocery stores, health care facilities and delivery services. And they live in multi-generational homes, so even if older people stay put, they are likely to be infected by a younger relative who can't.
They tend to get COVID-19 more often and do worse if they get sick, with more symptoms and a higher likelihood of ending up in the hospital or dying, said Peters, also a member of the leadership council of Beyond Type 1, a diabetes education and advocacy organization.
