Transcend Warrior – Madelaine Heidenreich

My Story:

Maddie is a T1D Warrior and learned about Transcend from the the sweetest guy she knows; David Robbins. Maddie and soon to be husband, David, are exhibiting health and happiness while sharing the highs and lows of living with Type 1 Diabetes, making them The Diabetic Duo. Maddie was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes on her 9th birthday and traded cake for insulin and syringes. She has goals of becoming the first woman with diabetes to travel to space one day and strives to help others who are going through the same challenges of living with diabetes.

How has Transcend helped treat your low blood sugars?

My fiancé, David Robbins, is also a Type 1 Diabetic and loves the Transcend products. I was traveling out of the country and David shared a few of the Transcend gels with me to use when needed. I usually take gummy bears or drink apple juice when my sugar drops, but I loved the convenience of carrying the gels instead. I also found them easy to open and use. Not only did I love the product, but I also love the story behind Transcend.
