Carol Burgess Ulrich (USA)

I am the VP of Fayetteville Community Lions Club in Fayetteville North Carolina and I have been living with type 1 diabetes for 55 years.

I have been blessed to have excellent care and I have proven to be more than a success case. I wear an insulin pump and have a Continuous Glucose Monitor (CGM) because I am not able to feel the highs and the lows. I only have one of many complications of diabetes and that is diabetic neuropathy, which I have under control with medication.

I have always been taught that you follow the rules, which is a message that I pass along to all of my sweet kids.
