She has graced the big screen, garnered numerous awards and honors and has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

“My advice to those who are ashamed of saying that they’re diabetic is, say it, and live with it, and smile. I have diabetes, but diabetes does not have me,” says Patti.
*If your glucose alerts and readings from the Dexcom G6 do not match symptoms or expectations, use a blood glucose meter to make diabetes treatment decisions.
