I am a Type 1 diabetic blogger, a content creator, writer, personal trainer and in the process of becoming a Nutritionist. The aim of everything I do is to prove that Type 1 diabetics can live life to the full, eat what they love, and have good control of the condition. I do this by encouraging T1s to learn to manage the foods they love with better lifestyle and nutrition choices. I promote a balanced lifestyle, where there is space for both health and tasty pleasures.
Fiasp is insulin aspart in a formulation containing 2 additional ingredients: a form of vitamin B3 (niacinamide), which increases the speed of initial insulin absorption, and an amino acid to aid stability. It enters your bloodstream in approximately 2½ minutes. This way, you can take Fiasp at the start of the meal, or 20 minutes after the start of a meal.
I’m living with my girlfriend, her two kids and our 2 dogs in a house near Stuttgart. I’m working as a social worker since 25 years. In my job, I try to help kids and families to get along with their problems and difficult situations. In my free time I make german rap music since 1991. I work with kids and some young refugees from Syria and Afghanistan to create their own hiphop music.
I am a stay at home mom to two beautiful, happy boys and wifey to my best friend. I enjoy being outside everyday. I love my morning coffee and enjoy a good workout that can release a little stress. I have my black belt In Shotokan Karate and have competed for Canada at the Pan American games!
I’ve met a lot of people with type 1 diabetes, diagnosed at various ages and as a result, I’m grateful that I was diagnosed at a young age. I was around 10 years old and it was during the Summer break from school. I was clearly very unwell and exhausted, despite usually being a really physically active kid.
I was born and raised in South Carolina. I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes on January 13th 1988, attended college in North Carolina, was a golf professional for 10 years, got married to my now husband in July 2013 and I am in the process of adopting 2 kids through our local County Agency. We live on just over 4 acres in Woodstock, Georgia, participate in our local community in several ways and attend church at Ebenezer UMC.
I was diagnosed when I was 9 years old. It has been a really tough journey throughout the years, especially because of the complications I got. I’m fighting with severe neuropathy, permanent feeding tube over the smaller intestines due to gastroparesis (stomach paralysis) and I I’m wheelchair bound. My diabetes broke down a lot of nerves and muscle tissue which made me unable to walk around normally.
I was diagnosed when I was 11 years old. In the beginning it was really difficult, because all my friends could eat and drink what they wanted and I couldn’t. I did not hide my diabetes at all. It is very important that everyone in your nearest surroundings is aware of the pro’s and con’s.
