As promised, I wanted to create a post about the common questions that I have received over the years from all walks of life. These questions have come from friends, family, other T1Ds, T2Ds, and parents of T1Ds.
Where do you get your protein?
Ha, this is always the best one. Many people think that eating a diet like mine … Read more
After my post last month, I wanted to calm things down a bit and get back to the basics.
This will be a bit of a lazy post for me, but I do think it’s important. I’ve been blogging for about three years now, and according to google analytics, it seems I have built a small following (thank you for … Read more
Over the past few months I have had several experiences that have frustrated me regarding my mission and censorship. I usually try and keep my posts upbeat and uncontroversial (well at least minimize controversy), but I’m going to vent a little bit on this one.
I try and respect everyone’s opinion, and I welcome healthy discussions with all people, whether … Read more
At the end of February, I got my quarterly A1c test which came back at 5.6. Since I was diagnosed about five years ago, my A1c has fluctuated between 5.3 and 5.7, so my most recent reading was a typical one for me.

It’s always interesting talking with people about my situation. The average non-diabetic has heard of diabetes, but what they believe as truth sometimes makes me laugh.

4 YEARS AND 11 MONTHS WITH NO MEDICATION OR INSULIN INJECTIONS AS A TYPE 1 DIABETIC
This month I wanted to change things up a little. Instead of the typical focus on my journey managing T1D without medication, I thought it was a good time for a 2nd guest blog post from my wife!
I’m very proud of Amanda as … Read more
4 YEARS AND 10 MONTHS WITH NO MEDICATION OR INSULIN INJECTIONS AS A TYPE 1 DIABETIC
I thought a good blog post would be to summarize the key resources that I’ve learned from over the past five years. Many of the resources are what I studied during my first year following my type 1 diabetes (T1D) diagnosis when I was … Read more
4 YEARS AND 9 MONTHS WITH NO MEDICATION OR INSULIN INJECTIONS AS A TYPE 1 DIABETIC
I recently started a new job about 5 months ago, and times have gotten a little more stressful. Everything is going great, but my stress levels has definitely been a little higher than they used to be.
Stress levels, accompanied with more business lunches, … Read more
4 YEARS AND 8 MONTHS WITH NO MEDICATION OR INSULIN INJECTIONS AS A TYPE 1 DIABETIC
The Annual Endocrinologist (“Endo”) Visit
Last month was my annual endocrinologist visit. Typically these are fairly interesting conversations, but this time was a little less eventful. That said, my doctor did have some recommendations of certain diabetes management solutions that have come onto the … Read more
4 YEARS AND 6 MONTHS WITH NO MEDICATION OR INSULIN INJECTIONS AS A TYPE 1 DIABETIC
Well, I’ve almost surpassed the 4.5 year mark of living medication free as a type 1 diabetic. It has been a tough road, but I couldn’t be happier where my life is. Yes, it’s certainly not fun living with this disease, but I have … Read more
