WASHINGTON — Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor got some unsolicited health advice the last time she wrote a book.
The justice was diagnosed with diabetes as a child and discussed it as part of her 2013 autobiography, “My Beloved World.”
Sotomayor said Saturday in an interview with The Associated Press that prompted a diabetic grandmother to write her. She said she was using newer technology to manage her diabetes. She told Sotomayor: “If I can do it you can do it too.”
Sotomayor said that pushed her to explore using the technology she does now, a continuous glucose monitor.
The justice was speaking ahead of the publication next week of two new books she’s written: an autobiography for elementary school readers and an abridged version of her memoir for middle school readers.
