Our Founder

Karin Hehenberger, MD, PhD
Dr. Karin Hehenberger is the founder of Lyfebulb. Diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at an early age, Dr. Hehenberger has dedicated her life to helping others impacted by chronic illnesses. Her personal history with diabetes as well as its consequences, which required kidney and pancreas transplants, provide Dr. Hehenberger with an understanding from a patient perspective as well as a medical professional. It is from those experiences both as a patient and as a doctor, that Dr. Hehenberger was motivated to create Lyfebulb.
