Hey! I’m Ben, a registered dietitian, certified diabetes educator, and strength coach, who has lived with Type 1 Diabetes for nearly 24 years . Not only am I a HUGE fan of ExpressionMed tape (and more on that in a minute), but I am the founder of Your Diabetes Insider, a dietetics practice that specializes in working with people on achieving incredible blood sugars while eating foods they love and becoming the strongest version of themselves.
There is a ton of overwhelm when it comes to managing blood sugars within the diabetes world. If you go online to look for information on improving blood sugars, you’re hit with a million different opinions that all contradict one another. This can lead to you feeling like it is impossible to truly live your life without any restriction from diabetes. But, I’m here to tell you that it could not be any further from the truth. We live in the BEST time in HISTORY to be able to THRIVE while living with diabetes!
As someone who was diagnosed with T1D at the age of 7, not only have I seen the insane technology advancements through the years, from continuous glucose monitors to smart insulin pumps, but I’ve both personally and professionally seen the way in which we manage diabetes improve for the better in so many ways.
As a kid, going to a restaurant for dinner pretty much guaranteed me a high blood sugar; if not during the meal, certainly hours after eating it. And, while that was frustrating back then, the ability these days to go out, have a great meal, and know EXACTLY how to handle it from a blood sugar perspective - to not only enjoy the food, but also soak in the moment and enjoy the people you’re with? It’s nothing short of incredible.
Instead of ping ponging blood sugars from low to high and back again during exercise or sports, the ability to have a relatively flat blood sugar graph and a gameplan of what to do at different portions of the session has been life changing for so many of Your Diabetes Insider's patients. And, being able to truly remove the power that diabetes can have over our lives in ANY area, from travel, to sick days, to even just being stress-free about possible complications that many doctors try to scare you about, is why we show up every day and do what we do.
My team of registered dietitians and I all live with diabetes, so we get it from both a personal and a professional level (because there’s nothing worse than being chastised by your care team for wanting to eat the fridge when you have a low blood sugar at 2:30am when they don’t get it!). And, we’ve dedicated our lives to YOU, so you can live your life without ANY restrictions imposed by diabetes. You can do what you love with the people you love and live your life to the fullest.
ExpressionMed tape gives you the freedom to do whatever you want with your CGM securely in place, and Your Diabetes Insider gives you freedom with the rest of your life! This is why we fit so well together! This is also why Your Diabetes Insider is giving all ExpressionMed tape users an exclusive discount on working with our team!
If you’re ready to stop sitting on the sidelines, wondering when you’ll FINALLY have your blood sugars in a place where they aren’t taking over your life, apply here to work with us. We can’t wait to serve you and help you achieve what you previously thought to be impossible! Be sure to mention ExpressionMed to receive your exclusive discount!
