In this episode, I speak to Andrew whose been living with type 1 diabetes for 35 years. Andrew and I discuss his life with type 1 diabetes and other topics including how type 1 has impacted his work and family life, men’s mental health, diabetes technology and his life-changing moment in 2016. This moment led Andrew on a journey of researching and learning more about type 1 diabetes in particular diabetes technology and diet. Andrew self advocated in order to receive funding for an insulin pump and he moved to a Keto diet and has recently moved to a low-fat high carb diet with the help of the book Mastering Diabetes. I’m aware in the community that discussion about how someone chooses to manage their diabetes with what they eat can at times be divisive however I believe that it’s down to the individual to choose what works for them and I’m all for conversations of people sharing their own personal experiences. I don’t believe that one person should tell another person the diet they are choosing to follow is wrong because it’s an individual decision.

In this episode, I speak to Melany Gray about her recovery from Diabulimia. ****TRIGGER WARNING****There will information about Eating Disorders and Disordered Eating. Diabulimia is an eating disorder that affects people who manage their diabetes by taking insulin and is when someone reduces or stops taking their insulin to lose weight. However, whilst Diabulimia isn’t actually a medically recognised term it is a very serious medical condition. In my chat with Melany, who has been living with type 1 for 22 years talks openly about her recovery journey. As with any recovery, her journey was not linear and Melany has to overcome not being taken seriously by her diabetes team when she first asked for help.
