The American Diabetes Association Expands Commitment to Youth With Type 1 Diabetes
Date:11/27/2007

e of my biggest priorities as the National Youth Advocate for ADA is to highlight the importance of education," said West. "Now, through Planet D, the ADA is doing just that and giving kids with diabetes the opportunity to connect with each other."

West was diagnosed with type 1 at the age 10 and has been an active volunteer with ADA's events and programs for many years. Now as the National Youth Advocate for the American Diabetes Association, West will generate awareness of the seriousness of diabetes, and discuss ADA's efforts to increase funding for diabetes research to protect people with diabetes against discrimination in school and in the workplace, and to make sure everyone with diabetes has access to affordable, quality health care. Tesch will also be traveling around the country speaking with children and adults alike about the importance of getting involved with the ADA.

Type 1 diabetes is usually diagnosed in children and young adults and accounts for 5% to 10% of all diagnosed cases of diabetes. In type 1 diabetes, the body does not produce insulin. Insulin is a hormone that is needed to convert sugar (glucose), starches and other food into energy needed for daily life.

The American Diabetes Association is the nation's premier voluntary health organization supporting diabetes research, information and advocacy. The Association's mission is to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes. Founded in 1940, the Association provides services to hundreds of communities across the country. For more information please call the American Diabetes Association at 800-DIABETES (800-342-2383) or visit http://www.diabetes.org. Information from both these sources is available in
