Living With Diabetes- Miguel Paludo
Special Content provided by The American Diabetes Association
“My name is Miguel Paludo. I am a race car driver in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. I want to stop diabetes because it is a disease I live with each and every day. I was diagnosed with diabetes in May of 2004; I was 20 years old. I had to learn to live with a disease that was foreign to me. I thought that I would never be able to race or live a normal life. I want to educated children and adults that diabetes is a disease, it does not have a cure, but it does not have to stop you from achieving your goals and dreams. Diabetes is like your new best friend. If you love him, take care of him and embrace the fact that he will always be there, then you too can be just like everyone else, just a little more special” says Miguel Paludo.
The American Diabetes Association is leading the fight to stop diabetes and its deadly consequences and fighting for those affected by diabetes.
