The past seven months have given me plenty of time and space to contemplate. One lesson from last year stands out, and serves as an umbrella for many other lessons. The fact is, we never truly know what others are going through. It takes effort and selflessness to put ourselves in other people’s shoes. I spent half of last year, and continue to be, immersed in a hidden world where you will see deep pain in more than one person’s face and feel an accompanying fear every single day.

Transitioning through the tumultuous teen years is even more challenging with Type 1 diabetes (T1D). No one knows this better than Tristan Edgar and our family. Tristan was diagnosed with this chronic condition at age 12. T1D is an autoimmune disease in which the pancreas stops producing insulin. Without insulin, the body is unable to manage blood glucose levels. 

Creating a good support team is essential for parents managing this condition for their children. The endocrinology clinic at Texas Children’s Hospital provides expert endocrinologists, experienced CDEs (certified diabetes educators) and nursing staff to support the 24/7...
