Beta Cell #010: Grace Bonney

Grace Bonney is the founder of the popular design blog Design*Sponge. In January of 2016, at 35 years old, Grace was misdiagnosed with type 2 diabetes. After several weeks of starving herself, going on fast walks several times a day, and taking drugs that left her in excruciating pain in order to keep her blood sugars somewhat under control, she suspected that she probably had type 1 diabetes instead. Grace talks about realizing how little doctors know about T1D, running a business after being diagnosed, and discussing her diagnosis publicly online.
