Looking for Type 1 Diabetics in Miami, Florida

Hello, I am a type 1 diabetic. I am 26 years old. Lately I have been struggling with my diabetes and would like to meet people near me that have type 1 diabetes as well to. My friends and family are helpful, but that is not the same as having someone who is literally going through the same thing as I am.

@art1324ort hi Arthur,

welcome to TypeOneNation, we have members in Florida, I live in Jersey, sorry about that,

what kind of struggles? blood sugar? meds? technology, doctors? costs? we have had them all here and we understand.

hope you are OK.


Hi Art @art1324ort, I’m in Florida - on the Gulf in southern Manatee County - and I’d be happy to talk with you; yeah, we don’t live close.

Here is a link to JDRF Chapters in Florida, a really great place to meet people living with diabetes. Try attending some of the events; you can get lots more information and events by clicking the “Events” tab at the top of this page and selecting “JDRF Near You”.

Good luck!
