For the nearly one in 10 Americans over the age of 20 living with diabetes, life is a constant balancing act.

Brian Stevens is one of 25.8 million people in the United States diagnosed with diabetes. He is also a single father, an apprentice electrician and part-time ski school instructor.

“Even though I’m diabetic, I do live a fairly regular lifestyle,” Stevens said.
