EAGLE RIVER - More than 29 million people suffer from diabetes across the country. Many have turned to service dogs to help manage their illness.

"It's been a long journey and it's very difficult for my family and for me," said Nancy Paul.

For Nancy, daily life is very hard.

She's struggled with Type I Diabetes since she was 12. But unlike some people, Nancy can't tell when her blood sugar is too high or too low. That can lead to some very serious consequences.

"I have no idea when I go low," said Paul. "I get really goofy, and you could be talking to me and you might as well be talking to a door because I'm not there."

She's had multiple heart attacks and comas from her diabetes. Nancy has now turned to something else to help her: a diabetic service dog.
