Type 1 Diabetes has been a part of my life since I was 4, and I know it won’t be going away anytime soon, but one day it will. Until then, it is my job to educate others about Type 1 Diabetes, help those who are recently diagnosed, and ultimately raise awareness about this very serious and sometimes life-threatening condition. I feel lucky to be able to do that and to teach my friends, family, and strangers about my disease every day. I wear my pump site and my sensor site loud and proud at the gym! I also love to travel and I don’t allow Type 1 Diabetes to stop me from doing that ever.

How has Transcend helped treat your low blood sugars?
I feel that they work very quickly and they’re so easy for me to grab on the go or when I am at the gym, it’s made it less frustrating when I have to stop a workout and treat a blood sugar.
