Playing and learning all day exhausts most 15 month olds – and their parents. But little Rhys still seemed unusually tired, and his pediatrician discovered why: Type 1 diabetes and celiac disease. #ImNotAverage
- Condition: Type 1 Diabetes and Celiac Disease
- Age: 5
- Location: East Brunswick, NJ
Fortunately for the family, both diabetes and celiac are autoimmune diseases that can be managed with innovative medicines and diet.
Today, Rhys enjoys life to the fullest, from playing sports to having treats at a friend’s birthday party. He is 5 years old and running around with new energy – and that’s icing on the cake.
