Sigal has been living with type 1 diabetes for over 17 years. She first developed gestational diabetes when pregnant with her son. After moving to Canada from Israel when he was two months old, Sigal was busy being a new Mom, in a new country where she didn't know the language and undergoing fertility treatments to try and conceive again.
One night she was taken to the emergency department with severe abdominal pain, thinking it was from the fertility treatment and was shocked to be told that she was now a type 1 diabetic. She had no idea what it meant, no idea how to deal with it and it felt like a bomb had been dropped on her life.
Sigal shares her stories from feeling like a victim, experiencing multiple diabetic coma's and why and how she decided to start taking control and taking back her power to manage her blood sugars in a new way and get the best health possible for her.
