September 21, 2019


INTRODUCE YOU TO A LITTLE GIRL NAMED RYLAN I FOR MY RULES FIRST GAME SHOW I SAID RELAX TO KEEP TRACK OF DOWN EVIL AND HOW IT I’M PLAYING ISLAND’S ONLY LOVING YEARS OLD AND TYPE 1 DIABETES IS A MAJOR FACTOR IN HER LIFE. BUT SHE’S DOING SOMETHING ABOUT SHE’S WORKING HARD TO RAISE THE FUNDS THAT WILL ALLOW FOR LIFE CHANGING RESEARCH AND BREAKTHROUGHS. WE’RE HAPPY TO HAVE RYLAN AND HER MOTHER JORDAN WITH US TODAY RYLAN JORDAN THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR COMING IN. THANK YOU NOW RAYLAN. YOU WERE ONLY SEVEN YEARS OLD WHEN YOU FOUND OUT THAT YOU HAD TYPE 1 DIABETES. WHAT WAS GOING THROUGH YOUR HEAD WHEN YOU FOUND OUT ESCAPE ANXIETY MORENO’S NOT REALLY COMFY WHAT WERE THE SYMPTOMS WHAT WHAT DID YOU NOTICE AFTER EVERYDAY AFTER SCHOOL. I FELT REALLY REALLY SICK AND REALLY HUNGRY. AND I GUESS FELT TERRIBLE ABOUT TERRIBLE. NOW JORDAN SHE HAS TYPE 1. YES. WHAT IS THE THERE ARE TWO DIFFERENT TYPES PLANE TYPE ONE. THIS IS WHY WE DO THIS. I THINK PEOPLE NEED TO BE MORE AWARE OF WHAT TYPE ONE DIABETES IS. TYPE 1 IS AN AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE. SO BASICALLY HER PANCREAS PUTS OUT THE CELLS THAT MAKE INSULIN BUT HER BODY FIGHTS IT. SO HER BODY IS FIGHTING THE CELLS THAT PRODUCING THE INSULIN SO UNTIL IT DOES PRODUCE THEM ANYMORE. SO SHE NO LONGER HAS INSULIN IN HER BODY AND WE HAVE TO PROVIDE THE INSULIN SO THAT’S THE MAIN PROBLEM IS THAT IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH WHAT SHE EATS HOW MUCH THE KINDS OF FOOD SHE IS EATING. SHE DOESN’T MAKE INSULIN NO MATTER WHAT FOOD WHETHER IT’S HEALTHY OR NOT HEALTHY THAT PEOPLE HAVE THAT PREDETERMINATION SO TELL US ABOUT TYPICAL DAY. WELL IT MOSTLY STARTS WHERE SHE DOESN’T KNOW WHAT SHE’S FEELING IN THE MORNING SO SHE’S EITHER WAKES UP HIGH. SHE WAKES UP SO WE HAVE TO FIGURE OUT WHERE WE’RE STARTING. AND THEN WE START WITH ADJUSTING HER INSULIN BASED ON THAT AND THEN WE CHANGE OUR CHOICES SO THEN WE DECIDE WHAT WE’RE GOING TO EAT FOR BREAKFAST? WE HAVE INSULIN FOR THAT. PACK HER LUNCH COUNTER CARBS MAKE A NOTE. SO WHEN SHE GOES TO SCHOOL WE CAN ADJUST HER SUGARS THROUGHOUT THE DAY LUCKILY SHE HAS HER PUMP SO LESS NEEDLES BUT EVERY TIME SHE GETS INSULIN IT TAKES A NEEDLE. SO THERE’S NO OTHER CHOICE. SO LUCKILY THE PUMP SITE PROVIDES IT SO SHE DOESN’T GET AS MANY STICKS A DAY. NO YOU’RE STILL A TYPICAL KID YOU LOOK TO BE OUTSIDE AND RIDE FOR WHEELERS AND HAVE FUN. HOW DOES THIS AFFECT YOUR YOUR DAY TO DAY PLAYTIME. IT DOESN’T AFFECT THAT NIGHT I JUST HAVE TO BE CAREFUL. I’M NOT SURE THERE IS. IT’S STARTING TO GO LOW AND WHEN TAKING PERFORMING FOR IT STARTS DROPPING REALLY BAD OR ELSE I MIGHT PASS OUT. WE DON’T PUT THAT DOWN ON A FORMULA. NOW YOU’RE ACTUALLY YOU FEEL BETTER BECAUSE YOU CONTROL IT. MM HMM. THAT’S WONDERFUL. SO YOU ARE RAISING FUNDS FOR AN UPCOMING WALK? TELL US ABOUT THAT HER SUGARS TURKEY OH WELL WE’RE WE’RE WALKING WE’VE DECIDED FOR ABOUT 40 YEARS NOW WE’VE BEEN WORKING TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE COMMUNITY OF FOR CHILDREN AND ADULTS TYPE 1.
