          Dr. Phil To Mom And Pregnant Teen Daughter: ‘You Guys Are Just Sabotaging Each Other’


          April 18, 2017

          Krystina says her pregnant daughter, Samantha, is a type 1 diabetic and claims she is not taking care of her disease during her pregnancy. She claims the 19-year-old eats whatever she wants and does not take her insulin. The grandma-to-be says she’s fears for her daughter’s life and the life of her unborn grandchild.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Conflict so big it needs a Dr. Phil solution?

          However, Samantha insists that she is taking care of herself and her baby.

          “I check my sugar eight times a day,” Samantha tells Dr. Phil in the video above. “I’m more concerned about this child than anything else now. When I found out I was pregnant, that was the day that I started taking care of myself more than anything.”

          Krystina, who says she doesn’t believe her daughter understands the severity of the disease, interjects, “That’s a lie.”

          After the mother and daughter argue, Dr. Phil weighs in.

          “This is not fair. I hate that you have this disease,” he says. “But you guys are just sabotaging each other right and left.”
