Alexandru Radita’s first medical crisis began when he was on the verge of turning 3. His parents brought him — thirsty, feverish, vomiting and suffering from abdominal pain — to a hospital in British Columbia in December 2000. Lab tests confirmed that young Alex had Type 1 diabetes.
A doctor spoke to Alex’s mother to explain her son’s diagnosis and how they would need to treat him at home. Type 1 diabetes is a lifelong condition in which a person’s pancreas does not produce enough insulin. People with it need regular blood tests and insulin injections to moderate blood-sugar levels.
