When first diagnosed with diabetes, many people understandably lament the limitations the disease will have on their lives. But Urban Miyares, a legally blind Vietnam veteran with type 1 diabetes, proves that a can do attitude and effective management can turn an upsetting diagnosis into boundless possibilities.
