The Doctors share an update from Jackson, the son of The Doctors executive producer Carla Pennington, who was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 2. He first visited the show when he was 8 and got an insulin pump, and now he returns 11 years later to share how he's learned to thrive with the disease.
Now in college and playing tennis for his school's varsity team, he tells us he's been doing really well with his diabetes through the use of an insulin pump and a sensor. He says the sensor helps to control his numbers while sleeping.
Jackson shares his top recommendation for anyone living with diabetes, saying "No matter how much help you get, it's your life. It's your life to control. If you want to make your number good, you have to put in the work to do it."
He also adds that diabetes is a life-long medical condition and encourages others dealing with to persevere and keep pushing. He also says drinking a lot of water and focusing on a healthy low-carb diet can help.
