I’m so excited to share the first episode of my new YouTube series This Is How I Do Diabetes with you today!
I hope that these videos will educate, inspire, and also encourage YOU to share how YOU do diabetes with our community as well, because learning from each other is simply an invaluable resource.
I can’t tell you how many tips and tricks I’ve picked up over the years watching videos of our peers in the diabetes community…tons of information that no doctor or endocrinologist would’ve ever been able to provide, unless they lived with diabetes themselves.
And, even more meaningful to me is that when I watch other people doing the day to day things that we all do when living with diabetes, it acts as a much needed reminder that I’m not alone on my diabetes journey, and that is something that offers me immense comfort and a sense of belonging that I need in order to live my best life.
This week I’m showing how I change my Dexcom G5 continuous glucose monitor (CGM). I talk about little tips that I’ve picked up over the years that help me keep sensors on for up to a whole month!
Leave a comment and let me know what you do differently, or if you have a tip that works great for you so we can continue to learn and grow together as a community!
And, if you choose to share how YOU do diabetes anywhere on social media, use the #ThisIsHowIDoDiabetes so I can find and share your posts!
Please share these videos with anyone you think could benefit from the info 🙂
