Kerri Morrone Sparling was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 6.  She spent most of her life navigating her diabetes alone in the sense that she was the only person she knew with the disease. 

In 2005 Kerri began blogging and writing about her experiences with diabetes and hasn't stopped since. She writes a wonderfully educational diabetes blog called, Six Until Me.  She's been featured in US News and World Report and has been a guest blogger on sites such as dlife and diaTribe

You could say that in the diabetes blogging world, Kerri is a rock star.  She is a fierce diabetes advocate and writes about topics ranging from daily life and testing to medical insurance coverage regarding your diabetes. 

Whether you are newly diagnosed or wanting to connect with someone who lives life fully with diabetes, Kerri's website is the place to go.
