Beta Cell #005: Cindy Goldstein

Like many people who develop type 1 diabetes later in life, Cindy Goldstein was initially diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. She struggled keeping her blood sugars under control while taking drugs designed for type 2 diabetes, eventually leaving three different endocrinologists until she found one who recognized she actually had type 1 diabetes. Cindy talks about not letting the mental toll of type 1 affect her day-to-day life, her fights with insurance companies, and making the switch to Medicare at 65 years old.
