We were recently on location for a photo shoot with a lovely young lady named Alison. The setting was perfect – her family’s farm in Ohio. And she did a great job showcasing BANDI in action!
Alison is 13 years old and very busy with school activities and a variety of sports including volleyball, running, and horseback riding.
What you’d never know, unless she told you, is that Alison’s BANDI belt is not just an active lifestyle accessory for her. Instead, the pockets of her BANDI belt carry essential medical supplies that help her manage Type 1 Diabetes (T1D).
Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease in which a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin, a hormone that enables people to get energy from food. It occurs when the body’s immune system attacks and destroys the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas, called beta cells.
While its causes are not yet entirely understood, scientists believe that both genetic factors and environmental triggers are involved. Its onset has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle. There is nothing you can do to prevent T1D, and—at present—nothing you can do to get rid of it. Source: JDRF.org
