“Diabetes
taught me
how to live
healthy.”
Stephanie Brodie Diagnosed at 14

My name is Stephanie Brodie. I’m 25 years old. I’ve been diabetic since I was 14 years old.

Q: The good parts of diabetes. I guess you never would have thought that’d be a sentence. A: It actually has been awesome because it’s taught me, like I said, how to live healthy. It led me to lead a more active and more healthy lifestyle.

Q: The most frustrating part. A: One of them is getting my insulin tube stuck on a door knob. That’s never a good time. Diabetes gets in the way a lot. It takes up a lot of time.

Q: The positives of diabetes. A: It teaches me how to be active, how to be healthy and how to control that.

Q: Advice I would give to a newly diagnosed diabetic. A: Get involved with things. Open yourself up and try not to make it a negative experience.

gives me the
strength of
adaptability.”
