This week’s interview with Alissa Podber whose gestational diabetes turned into type 1 is truly inspirational. Her story really showcases the trials and tribulations of diagnosis later in life, and how even through tremendous adversity, we all have the power to make the choices to change our health and our lives in major ways. Alissa went from being overweight and knowing nothing about diabetes to competing in figure competitions while living with type 1 diabetes…certainly no easy task!
This is Alissa’s first time sharing her full personal story of diagnosis, struggles and seemingly hopeless moments that ultimately ended in triumph with the #doc via video interview, and I’m honored to have had the chance to bring it the world. It is full of motivation, inspiration, and an unbreakable “we-can-do-anything-we-put-our-minds-to” attitude. Alissa truly embodies a diabetes dominator mentality, and I am thrilled to have her on our team 🙂
