Madi Interviews Nick, editor's Note: We knew kids dealing with diabetes would have lots of questions for Nick, so we turned the rest of the interview over to Madison Dodge.
Madi has had diabetes since she was. She's also an accomplished performer and an advocate for the American Diabetes Association.
Here's what Madi wanted to know: Madi: Do you notice a difference in your ability to perform when your blood sugar is very high or dropping low?
Nick: In the beginning, yes.
I had wild mood swings and couldn't drink enough water.
But now I'm able to check used my blood sugar before we go onstage, so I can manage it by using my Omni Pod the device he wears that delivers insulin. Madi: I perform with several theater groups and choruses and for pageants, and I feel badly when my sugar is too high or too low.
It is hard to focus and do my best.
Does this affect you? Nick: I do get tired, but our days are pretty jam-packed. Again, it's a question of regularly asthma checking and managing our blood sugar.
Madi: How has your family handled your diagnosis?
