Elizabeth has come a long way in the few years since she was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at age 44. “I’m actually a happier person than I was before I was diagnosed,” she tells the American Diabetes Association’s (ADA) consumer magazine, Diabetes Forecast, in the February 2008 issue. In this exclusive interview Elizabeth discusses her diagnosis, treatment regimen, and the ways in which having diabetes has made an impact on her Hollywood career.

Elizabeth, who has received multiple award nominations for her role in critically acclaimed Showtime series Weeds, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 2005 while filming the first season of the show.

“I felt completely overwhelmed that first year on the show, and I didn’t tell anybody I had diabetes. All of a sudden I was in my trailer at work, testing my glucose, and shooting myself up, and I was really scared and felt very alone and completely in over my head … it took me a good year and a half to embrace this and say, proudly, ‘I’m diabetic and I’m in control of my disease.'”

Type 1 diabetes commonly develops in children, but can occur at any age. Although Elizabeth was already familiar with healthy dieting and regular exercise to stay fit for the cameras, having diabetes allowed Perkins to make another important change in her lifestyle.

“I really learned to listen to my body and to know what I needed. And there are times I need to rest, and before I never allowed myself to do that.” The experience of coping with the illness has helped Elizabeth to develop her Weeds character, Celia Hodes.

“I was testing my blood, learning how to draw syringes, and injecting myself, unbeknownst to everybody around me … I think that definitely translated into my character: I was just sort of out on a limb, on my own, and there was not going to be anybody to save me except myself.” And now? “I’m actually a happier person than I was before I was diagnosed. I have a much greater perspective on the world around me.”

    I just saw you on the ADA website. I sincerely am glad you got to a better place with how you feel physically and emotionally. My daughter was diagnosed Oct. 2006 at 11years old. A shock you can imagine and getting to a better place was challenging..She has amazed us with how her mature nature exudes a precious, positive view of the world around her that puts us in aw and ease. Now I have another female figure I can point out that is moving onward and upward. It makes me cry everytime another person is diagnosed, knowing Type 1 continues, but the support and words from others is invaluable.. and the family sense that comes from others living with something only they can understand has helped alot.. On another note we love to watch Miracle on 34th street every year…. Best to you always!

    I just read the American Diabetes Forecast article. I too was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 41. I knew there were other people who were diagnosed with type 1 as an older adult but I had yet to find out whom. I am grateful you went public and I want to say thank you for bringing to light the little known fact that type 1 diabetes can be diagnosed at ANY age. Even though I will probably never meet you, you are the one person with whom I can relate. By the way, you will love the insulin pump and as for being an actress and what to do with it, I hook mine on my bra. For the most part, no one is the wiser unless of course, I give them a hug. I sincerely wish you well and thank you once again.
