WEGO HAWMC Day #3 Superpower Day

Superpower Day: If you had a superpower what would it be? How would you use it?

In reference to Type 1 diabetes my superpower would either be the ability to catch a low or high before they happen ( A human CGM if you will ), pretty much what a Diabetic Alert Dog can already do. Or the ability to regulate Clifford's pancreas as it worked before it decided to lose in the battle against his immune system. I'd imagine I would have a cape quite like this one:
Just imagine how much easier everything would be to detect highs and lows before they happen so we can fix them or to to regulate his pancreas with the blink of an eye (I'm imagining I dream of Genie).... But with every superhero there is always a weakness or Kryptonite. For the Superhero of Type 1 diabetes, our Kryptonite would be Ketones. You battle everyday against your nemesis to keep them away and from making your T1D sick. 

So there you have it the fight against the ketones will involve insulin and water!!!!!
