I absolutely love doing these interviews because I get to learn so much about some incredibly awesome, strong, inspiring people. Karin is one of those people.

If you’ve never heard her story before, it’s because she informed me that this is the first time she’s ever shared it so candidly. I highly recommend watching her interview; the lessons about denying diabetes and fighting it that she teaches through her struggles and triumphs are mind-blowing!

Dr. Karin Hehenberger is the founder of Lyfebulb. She was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes as a young girl, and has dedicated her life to helping others impacted by chronic illnesses.

Her story of not accepting diabetes as part of her life for too long is incredible and scary, and led to complications and many adversities including kidney and pancreas transplants. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. Her inner strength, will to succeed, and never-quit attitude are beyond inspiring.

Her many experiences provide Karin with an understanding from a patient perspective as well as that of a medical professional.

    Fantastic stuff , I am a long term T1 . Dx in 1960(age 3)It was’nt quite the dinosaur age but I think the Romans were still battling.,No bood meters, Glass Syringes,Testing Urine. Who knows exactly how high I used to get.A 2 pack of Boston cream doughnuts for lunch was a fairly regular thing.When I was 7 or 8 it was cool to be different than the other kids. I only remember meeting 1 other T1 in my school days. At 8 years old my parent’s sent me to Diabetic camp. I continued there as a camper until I was 15, then on staff until I was 26.My group of type 1 aquaintences is around 500 including my younger sister .I was diagnosed in London, Ontario just blocks away from Banting House.Every time we are in London to see our Endocrinologist we take a minute or two just checking up on the flame of hope.I hope you still get in a game or 2 of tennis.
