Five years ago this month, my second son, Tristan, started to complain that his vision had gotten blurry. I also had noticed he was gulping down everything in sight, and he seemed to be urinating constantly. The day before Thanksgiving, I took Tristan, then 14, for a vision test at the pediatrician's office, and when the eye exam was done, I — as casually as possible — asked for a urine test. Although I hadn't told anyone, I knew he had the telltale signs of type 1 diabetes.

Steve Virgen Sure, Orange Coast College men's hoops has do-it-all Nick Burwell. Yes, the Pirates have point guard penetrator Ryan Earl and smooth post moves from Chad Hagedorn. They don't lack scoring punch. But, it is the team's character that has made the difference in the Bucs' 4-0 start in the Orange Empire Conference. Coast's character comes from an unlikely source: Mark Meyers. The Pirates' triple threat of Burwell, Earl and Hagedorn provide personality on the court, while Meyers produces the team's character off it. Meyers, a 6-foot-7 240-pound freshman, has endured a life of diabetes -- four insulin injections a day, nausea from the joys of junk food and sometimes depression.

Imagine being told at age 10 that you have Type 1 diabetes, that you have to monitor your blood sugar, inject yourself with insulin four times a day and become obsessive about everything that goes into your body. Some of us would let the disease control — and ruin — our lives. But like the saying goes, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger, and as a doctor and a mother in Newport Beach, I've been lucky enough to meet some incredibly strong kids. Type 2 or "adult onset" diabetes gets a lot of attention these days due to its link to the alarming rise in childhood obesity.
