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.

Hey, I’m Cerise, I’m French and it’s been 5 years since I moved to Montreal, Canada.I moved here to go to university and study business. Now I work in digital marketing. I got diagnosed a few months after I arrived in Montreal, so my diagnosis story is a bit of a wild one. I love cooking, painting, traveling, and trying out new restaurants. But most importantly, I enjoy hanging out with my friends and family. I got diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 18. In the beginning, I was only telling people that were close to me.

I am part of the T1D runner team. Running, playing basketball and swimming is a big part of my life. Also traveling, doing multiple sports and my interest in business is half of my life. I’m an electrical engineer with an MBA degree. Currently I’m working as a sales manager. I didn’t grow up with diabetes. I was 19 years old when I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. I never hid my diabetes. I like to be diabetic!!! I think the hardest thing about having type 1 diabetes is the psychological part. I’m concerned about getting older. Will there by any complications? How will my diabetes be when I am older?

I did not grow up with my diabetes. However my brother was diagnosed as a type one diabetic in his teens. My endocrinologist believes that I had diabetes for 18 months before being diagnosed and treated. I have been on a plant based diet for a few years and live an extremely active lifestyle here in Colorado. Hiking, running, body weight training and tennis as my main activities.

The FreeStyle Libre 14 day sensor is part of a continuous glucose monitoring system, checking your readings day and night, and is accurate for insulin dosing. The small sensor is about the size of two stacked quarters and can be scanned discreetly, even through clothing. You can even scan the sensor with your compatible smartphone. The FreeStyle Libre 14 day sensor is painless to apply and easy to wear. It is water resistant so you can swim, shower or exercise.

We are sisters and type 1 Diabetics. Margaret was diagnosed at 11 years old and has had type 1 diabetes for 11 years. Anna was diagnosed at 21 years old and has had type 1 diabetes for 4 years. We grew up in South Carolina and are super fortunate to have both parents in the medical field who somewhat understood type 1 diabetes whenever Margaret was first diagnosed. Margaret had been a type 1 diabetic for 8 years whenever Anna was diagnosed so we were able to help each other and learn more together.
