To Save His Parents Money, This Diabetic Teen Cut Back on His Insulin
Dillon Hooley loves his parents, so when he heard last year they were struggling to pay for his insulin, he wanted to help out any way he could. The high school senior came up with an idea: He would cut back on his insulin by about a third. Dillon, who has type1 diabetes, is supposed to keep his blood sugar levels between 130 and 150. After he started rationing insulin, his levels jumped as high as 300.
