          Woman Confronts Pregnant Diabetic Teen Daughter About Her ‘Negligent’ Behavior


          April 18, 2017

          Samantha, 19, is pregnant and a type 1 diabetic. She says that once she learned she was carrying a child, she started taking care of herself and managing her disease. She says she quit smoking and has only had one glass of wine during her pregnancy.

          Her mother, Krystina, however, claims her daughter has not been taking care of herself, and she fears Samantha and her unborn grandchild could potentially die as a result of what she calls Samantha’s negligence.

          In the video above, Dr. Phil asks the teen how she has been managing the risks associated with type 1 diabetes. When her mom hears the answers, she confronts her daughter.
