I absolutely love it when I meet young people who are hard-working go-getters like Guy Bortz. He has had type 1 diabetes since he was 5, and at 23 years old he is running 2 awesome podcasts (one diabetes focused called Podabetic, and the other fitness focused) all with the intention of helping people connect, relate, and laugh (rather than cry/get frustrated) over the difficulties of living with diabetes – and share their stories.
Guy is a strength coach/personal trainer, and also runs a coffee roasting business with his brother. His dad also has type 1! Guy feels that his experience with T1D has been extremely helpful in developing a deeper sense of empathy and compassion with others.
We chat about some great topics including struggle, triumph, food, exercise, and dating…with diabetes 🙂
