HI, I'M DR. MARK HEYMAN

Episode #15: Is T1D a Disability?

Tune In: Apple Podcasts | Spotify

In this episode, I talk to Lauren Salko about whether T1D should be considered a disability. Lauren has lived with T1D since she was young, and she competes as a professional skier on the US National Ski Team. Traveling internationally with her diabetes alert dog has given her an interesting perspective on looking at T1D as a disability.

In our conversation, Lauren explains why she considers T1D to be a disability and we explore how calling T1D a disability can impact mental health – both positively and negatively. I am not sure I completely agree with Lauren’s point of view, she definitely opened my mind to a new way of thinking about disability and T1D.
