Back to Kid' Voices Gabriel

Hi! My name is Gabriel, I have 8 years old, and I have diabetes since 1 year and 2 months. I love to play with my friend from school Daniel. I am from Brazil, and we just moved from Miami to Mexico.

I don't like to have diabetes, but I know that I need to take care of myself. I am using the insulin pump. I also love to play soccer, tennis and to swim.

I can measure my blood glucose by myself. My Mom and Dad are super! They help me very much. At school I can take care of myself.

You can email my parents at lucianapapaleo AT
