Transcend Warrior – Whitney Gillett

My Story:

Hi, my name is Whitney! I am a Choreographer/Artistic Director in New York City. I was diagnosed with T1D in 2014, and then again in 2016. Long story. So, I have officially had Type 1 for 3 years! Throughout these three years I’ve dealt with lows that have caused pretty severe hypo anxiety. Transcend Glucose gels have allowed me to dance, be active, and walk around Manhattan without as much fear of lows. Having them in my bag makes me feel way safer and gives me the confidence to live my life!!! I love living life to the fullest, adventuring, and reading positivity and joy to others with invisible illnesses. I am thankful to Transcend for having my back so that I can live it up with confidence and a smile on my face.

My Health Details:

  • Type of Diabetes:Type 1
  • Low blood sugar instances per week:1-3 Instances
  • Daily number of times checking blood sugar:7+ times/day

How has Transcend helped treat your low blood sugars?

Transcend Glucose gels have MASSIVELY helped me combat low blood sugars and so quickly. Carrying Transcend Glucose gels with me have also helped me get over pretty sever hypo glycemic anxiety. Knowing how quickly they work keeps me feeling safe and confident in dealing with low blood sugars. And as an active T1D, I am so thankful.
