April 22, 2020

My Story:

All my life I was in dance or cheerleading there’s not a lot of time to take breaks for low blood sugars, I wish I had Transcend Glucose Gels years ago because they are the perfect handy treat to bring your numbers up quickly.

How has Transcend helped treat your low blood sugars?

I love the glucose gels, even with my cgm I can drop very fast and the gels work better than anything I’ve tried to help my numbers get up fast and stay up!

Do you have a diabetic hero that you look up to? If so, who and why?

I think my diabetic hero is myself. As well as other the other diabetics fighting this disease every day and being a warrior and fighting the fight!

What is your biggest challenge with diabetes?

Balancing my personal life with my diabetes. I still haven’t figured out how to have a good time but try to let loose a bit and trust the technology will alert me if there is an issue.

What have you learned from your experiences with diabetes?

How strong and independent I can be but also that I need to be my own advocate. No one is going to fight for me harder than myself!
