So, my first introduction to T1D was the Babysitter’s Club. One of the main characters, Stacey, had type 1 diabetes. I don’t remember it being wildly inaccurate, and at least the description of the bed wetting and the weight loss prior to her diagnosis I think helped me spot Samson’s symptoms early.
Anyways, there’s a new Netflix show coming out and I’m slightly embarrassed to admit I’ll be watching it. I’m very curious about whether they’ll get the d-facts right – and if they’ll update the technology to reflect 2020, as opposed to 1987.
What are some of your favorite depictions of diabetes in books/movies?
