Diabetes: DJ's Story (Video)

DJ, 15, has been living with diabetes for 1½ years. In this video, he talks about the things that have surprised him about having diabetes, like how he enjoys fruit and vegetables more than the sugary, high-carb foods he once ate.

He also talks about how the steps he's taken to change his diet and get more exercise have helped his family make healthier choices too!
