When I was first diagnosed at age 17, it was my CDE’s that saved the day. I was very accustomed to a certain active, adventurous, healthy, yet laid back teenage lifestyle at that point, and I was determined to keep it that way.
Some of the most helpful tips CDE’s gave me weren’t just carb-counting tips and tricks, but resources I could engage with on my own time.
One of my biggest goals for The Sugars is to be a shoulder for newly diagnosed young adults. If you or any CDE’s in your network are a fan of The Sugars, and feel my message and content could be beneficial to new patients, please shoot me an email. I can provide information, pamphlets, decals and stickers, as well as tote bags to your office to raise awareness. Thank you!
