Welcome to Novo Nordisk in the United States

A father and son’s story

By Novo Nordisk US | Published June 14, 2019

Living with a chronic disease like diabetes can be life-changing. Learning that your child will live with the disease can be as well. But family and love can provide support. We want you to meet Michael, a Novo Nordisk employee who lives with type 1 diabetes. His son, who is now a father himself, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when he was three years old. Now a grandfather, Michael reflects on his greatest challenges and treasures – especially his grandson.

Watch as Michael and his son share their story:
