Jack comes from a very sporty background and like most Diabetics, his diagnosis came as a massive shock.Jack admittedly didn’t manage his Diabetes too well in the beginning, and didn’t prioritise his health as much as he should have. All that soon changed, fast forward a few short years and Jack is now a Personal Trainer and proudly keeps his health at the top of his list each day.Just this year Jack completed his first Iron Man (2.4 mile swim, 112 miles cycle, 26.2 mile run). His aim for this challenge was to prove to himself, and other Diabetics out there that Diabetes shouldn’t stop you from achieving great things.As always, be sure to rate, comment, subscribe and share.

In today’s episode Eoin speaks all about HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training).HIIT has become increasingly more popular over recent years. It’s been the go-to exercise regime during lockdown as you don’t need huge amounts of space, you can use just your bodyweight for all exercises, you don’t need gym equipment and you can work up a heavy sweat in a very short space of time (10 - 30 mins).But, just because HIIT is a convenient way to exercise, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s easy to control blood sugar if you’re Diabetic. Much like all areas of exercise, HIIT can and will have an impact on your blood sugar levels - almost immediately and potentially for hours afterwards too.Eoin outlines what to expect from your blood sugar during a HIIT workout, a few strategies you can use to ensure your blood sugar is kept at a safe range during, and what tactics need to be implemented after your workout, so you’re confident your levels stay consistent.Be sure to rate, comment, subscribe and share.

On today’s episode of The insuleoin Podcast, Eoin speaks with Scott Burrell.Scott is from the UK and has been living with Type 1 Diabetes for over 20 years. Despite living with the condition for this time, Scott admits that he hasn’t always been on top of his Diabetes management.He tells his story of how he coped with things quite well initially, following his diagnosis, but as he got into his teen years he began to neglect the fact that he had Diabetes. Scott would check his blood sugar just twice a month, only take insulin while at home and refuse to carry hypo treatment while he was out with friends. Which inevitably led to numerous ambulance calls.There were two dramatic turning points in Scott’s life which resulted in him completely changing his mindset around his Diabetes.He’s now an incredible advocate for Diabetes health, represents his country at international Futsal Championships and frequently competes in long distance running races - breaking records along the way.Be sure to rate, comment, subscribe and share.

Brandon had to somehow raise $250,000 in 3 months, just to pay for his life saving surgery.We’ll let you hear it from him.Be sure to rate, comment, subscribe and share.
