Our staff will be showing support by wearing blue across all 7 locations. Book your appointment to help contribute and show your support to this important cause. Appointments can be made at any of the locations through the website at whipsalon.com or by calling 855.WHIP.SLN.

What is Type 1 Diabetes?

Type 1 Diabetes occurs when your body stops producing insulin—a hormone essential to turning food into energy. Managing the disease is a constant struggle that involves monitoring your blood-sugar level, administering insulin, and carefully balancing these insulin doses with your eating and activity. People with T1D may experience dangerously high or low blood-glucose levels that can, in extreme cases, be life threatening even with careful monitoring.

“My now 14-year-old son was diagnosed with Type 1 in 2021,” Amy Pal. "I want to help my son and everyone living with T1D to find a cure, as well as help educate and spread awareness about the difference between Type 1 and Type 2. Type 1 is hereditary and irreversible, and once it kicks in, there’s no stopping it and it is a life-changing, life-long diagnosis.”

T1D is managed by administering short-term and long-term insulin. Short-term insulin must be taken 15 to 20 minutes before eating any carbs and the calculation needs to be right or a diabetic will have blood sugar levels that are either dangerously high or low. It is administered either by injections or a pump. The good news, there are more and more technological advances all the time that makes managing it easier.
