I've tried sugar free or diabetic candy, and it tasted like a blob of glue stick. I'd rather go without. I think diabetes is still a very serious disease even with advancements. She sounded severe enough that the pump would probably be beneficial. I've never seen one. Is it noticeable? She might be too vain for it.
I think it's still pretty tough to deal with nowadays. I know someone whose 6-year-old was recently diagnosed and they have to be very, very careful with food. Counting carbs, calories, etc. It's been a huge adjustment for them.

I know someone who was diagnosed recently - he probably had it since he was born, but they caught it so late! It has been a huge adjustment. However, this was a little dude I used to babysit (he is a 10th grader now), and his mom has an app on her phone that tells her what is going on with his pump and when his sugar levels get off track. Then she calls and nags him, which of course he responds to negatively. I feel very sad for them. I did find it really cool that there is an app for that though. I think Stacey's mom would definitely have had it on her phone if she could have!

The new show did a pretty good job of this. She's able to eat some sweets in moderation in the wedding episode. I don't know why that version of the character would bedazzle what she's using (I think it's the pump?). Stacey would make it black or white so it goes with everything.
