Jennifer Christensen was diagnosed with type 2 Diabetes in 2004, two days before her 29th birthday. She had lost about 50 pounds of weight in three months without even trying so she headed to the doctor to find out what was wrong.

After 6 years, two doctor changes, and finally a C-peptide test, it was determined that she had been wrongly diagnosed as type 2. She had, in fact, type 1 diabetes.

Jennifer writes about her journey towards a correct diabetes diagnosis and how she learned to like running and exercise when she could see the positive impact on her diabetes and overall health.
