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.
I have been living with type 1 diabetes for 11 years now! I am a professional dancer and choreographer and the founder of The Diabesties Foundation! When not working on diabetes or dance, you can find me reading, listening to music or writing!
I’ve been living with type 1 diabetes since 1997. I was born and raised in Denmark but moved to the United States in 2009 with my husband. Today we run www.diabetesstrong.com from our home in Santa Monica, CA where we enjoy hiking and hanging out with our fur-baby, Zoe. I didn’t grow up with diabetes. I was not diagnosed until I turned 19.
Levemir is a man-made form of insulin, a hormone that is produced in the body. Insulin works by lowering levels of glucose (sugar) in the blood. Levemir is a long-acting insulin that starts to work several hours after injection and keeps working evenly for up to 24 hours. Levemir is used to improve blood sugar control in people with diabetes.
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’m from London, I love sport, hanging out with friends and traveling. I was diagnosed at age 11 with diabetes type 1. I didn’t hide my diabetes at first but then began too as I went into my teenage years. The hardest part was emotionally for my family, a lot of changes happened.
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.
