Transcend Warrior – Nancy Johnson

My Story:

My story is rather unique. I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at age 67, with no prior diabetes and no family history of diabetes. I was diagnosed when my blood glucose shot up to 988 and was admitted to the hospital, one year after having quadruple by-pass heart surgery. This has radically changed my life, as now my life appears to center around diabetes and how I handle it. At age 74, I am still exceedingly active, I regularly work out doing water aerobics, etc. I am also the coordinator of a food pantry and do much of the stocking and rearranging of food cases. I always carry emergency food items and Transcend Glucose Gels where ever I go, even if it is only a short trip to a store.

My Health Details

  • Type of Diabetes:Type 1
  • Low blood sugar instances per week:4-5 Instances
  • Daily number of times checking blood sugar:7+ times/day
  • Managing Diabetes with:Insulin Pump

How has Transcend helped treat your low blood sugars?

Transend Glucose Gels are portable and easy to consume. They are also the quickest way I know to raise up my blood glucose quickly. I do like the flavor of the strawberry and currently have not tried the other flavor.
