Islet Cell Transplant Recipient Julie Allred

Islet Cell Transplant Recipient Julie Allred

Julie Allred was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at age 10, a generation ago. Told she wouldn't live past 30 and would never have children, Julie proved her doctors wrong but eventually had so many low blood sugars that she couldn't drive or leave her house unaccompanied. Two islet cell transplants as part of a clinical trial have changed her life. Julie is also a school nurse; she shares advice for parents on working with school staff.
