Nice to meet you all. I've had diabetes since age 5, and l find it interesting to learn more about diabetes from social media and those that live with the disease, rather than anywhere else. I enjoy the gym, anything outdoors and recently took a 6 week Crossfit class. I find staying active helps manage my blood sugars so much better!! I wear a Medtronic 530G insulin pump and love my Dexcom CGM!!❤️

I just found this app. but I am happy that I did. I am a sophomore in college working towards my BA in health and wellness to be a certified diabetes educator. I have been diagnosed since i was 16 but they were suspecting me having it at 14.
