Episode Info:

Dana Lewis was diagnosed with Type I Diabetes at 14. She struggled as a teenager with the cumbersome equipment, but struggled more as a college student without parents to help wake her when her glucose was out over range overnight. Since then, her now-husband and others along the way have helped her to create an open-sourced software for a pancreas system that she uses every day, which automatically adjusts the insulin dosing on its own, in response to her changing glucose levels. The biotech industry is still catching up to the technology that patients have pushed forward on their own.
