Blood Sugar Rising

Nicole - Southern California

Diagnosed as a teenager, Nicole was so frightened of her Type 1 diabetes that she ignored it for years. But chronic high blood sugars damage the eyes, the heart, the kidneys, and more, and now Nicole has multiple organ failures. This episode follows Nicole as she works to stay alive, hoping for a life-saving and rare dual transplant: new kidneys and a new pancreas.
