We’ve heard a lot in this series from people with diabetes (PWD), but how does diabetes fit into the life of people who are with PWDs? In this episode, we talk with Jennifer, whose partner, Jeff, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at 32. She shares how they adjusted their food choices, to CGM alarms, and the bigger picture in overall health and well-being. “Having others to connect with is a profoundly overlooked resource. Even if they don’t have the answers that you need, they have some bit of information. They have a piece of the puzzle. They have their own experiences.”
