不治の難病「1型糖尿病」を治る病気にする
~インスリン注射が不要な「根治」を目指し、治療研究費を集める活動に人生を駆ける~ | 大村 詠一

原因不明で突然発症する不治の難病「1型糖尿病」。患者は生活習慣病、呪いなどと根拠のない偏見にさらされる。8歳で発症し、毎日何回もインスリン注射を自分の手で打たなければ生きられない体になるが、血糖値をコントロールすることで高校時代にエアロビック競技のジュニア世界チャンピオンになる。
今では、1型糖尿病を根絶するため、日本の有望な研究を支援する基金のために活動。子どもたちに「1型糖尿病は治る」と言える日が来るのを胸に抱き、全国を駆け回る。

He is working for the fund that supports Japan’s promising research in order to eradicate type 1 diabetes.
He envisions the day when he can say that type 1 diabetes is curable, running around across Japan.

When he was 8, he developed type 1 diabetes that needs a shot of insulin every day.
