Talking Type 1 Diabetes with Jacob

Updated: Jun 12, 2020

Hi! My name is Jacob and I am from Scarsdale New York. My mission Is to educate on playing sports with type 1 diabetes, carb counting, and being a contact for diabetes related questions!

I am 16 years old and have had diabetes for almost 4 years. Diabetes does not define who I am. I play varsity baseball as well as basketball. I also enjoy playing Rec Ultimate Frisbee with my friends.


Jacob has joined forces with Bake Back America to support the Help a Diabetic effort by donating his time and personal experiences to bring awareness about type 1 diabetes.

Please leave your questions about type 1 diabetes in the comments below and they will be answered in our next blog post. Jacob cannot answer medical questions specific to blood sugars.
