Sotomayor has been public about her struggle with type 1 diabetes

Earlier this morning, Sotomayor attended the court's weekly closed door conference. The justices discussed whether to take up a challenge to President Donald Trump's latest version of his travel ban and later announced they would do so.

Sotomayor was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of eight and has been public about her struggle with the disease, writing about it in her memoir "My Beloved World."
