Most people living with T1D know that carbs impact their blood sugars. This class goes beyond the carbs to explain how other aspects of nutrition affect blood sugar management and helps you understand how you can eat a variety of foods with effective strategizing. You’ll expand your knowledge of nutrition and learn how you can eat a variety of foods with effective strategizing.
Whether you’re always stopping to treat a low or spiking high after your workouts, it can be frustrating to feel like diabetes is getting in the way of your activity. This class is all about how to stay in range before, during, and after exercise. You’ll learn what factors to look out for, how to plan based on timing and type of activity, and how to strategize for your particular challenge while keeping your blood sugars in check.
While some parts of diabetes management are tangible, like counting carbs and dosing insulin, there is a big behind-the-scenes player that is important to understand as well. This class covers stress hormones and how they impact blood sugars. Plus, we brainstorm ways to reduce stress to improve insulin sensitivity and overall well-being on a daily basis.
Being able to identify your blood sugar patterns is a critical skill for living with more ease and less frustration. This class walks you through how to identify your body’s unique patterns and understand what factors are driving your blood sugars up or down. Then we help you start using your observations to make small changes that will have a huge impact.
Making space for your mental and emotional health as a person with type 1 diabetes is crucial. By being here, you are doing a great job showing up for yourself. In this class, we dive into burnout: what it is, how it shows up, where it comes from, and how to nurture this part of your journey. This class is about being vulnerable, meeting yourself where you are, and knowing this is a safe space to connect with people who truly get it.
Acceptance of T1D is an important part of mental and emotional health. This class guides you through four different phases of acceptance to help you feel more connected to your diabetes. You will learn to meet yourself where you are in this moment, lean into the grief and shame that often come with diabetes, discover ownership of your health, and integrate diabetes into your life sustainably.
In this class we break down the basics of your rates and ratios and examine the pros and cons of pumps, pens, and shots. We discuss the importance of taking ownership of your management and learning about the specifics of insulin so you can advocate for yourself with your doctor.
This is not your typical health class! Did you know that understanding your hormonal fluctuations throughout your cycle can help you manage your blood sugars throughout the entire month? For many people, this is the missing piece in truly getting to know your body’s patterns. In this class, we focus on how hormone changes impact insulin sensitivity and what you can do to sync your diabetes management with your menstrual cycle.
We’re taught the most about how food and how exercise impact T1D, but what about sleep? Whether your sleep is often interrupted by CGM low alarms throughout the night or you’re waking up in the morning to a high blood sugar, what happens while we are in bed is just as important to understand as the rest of our day. This class is all about how to stay in range overnight so that you can improve your quality of rest AND what your trends throughout the day are telling you about your sleep. You’ll learn what factors impact your blood sugar overnight and how to strategize for better sleep.
As people living with T1D, there is a necessary level of acceptance that it’s not going to be easy to have the same relationship with food as someone without diabetes. AND, that doesn’t mean food has to consume you. This class goes deep into how diabetes impacts your relationship with food and it also helps you tune into other pieces that are beneath the surface. Once we are aware of the emotions reflected in the way we approach food, we can begin to fulfill our needs in different ways, get off the pendulum of extremes, build trust with ourselves, and develop a philosophy around food that serves our health and our values.
So, you feel pretty good about managing your diabetes during your typical day to day life. But when it comes to vacation, holidays, a new job, illness, or grief, it feels like it’s a diabetes free-for-all. This class is all about how to navigate T1D when your life takes you outside of your normal routine. We break down the essential factors to be aware of and the strategies that will help unfamiliar circumstances feel less daunting. Whether it’s big changes or just the change from weekday to weekend, this class will have you feeling confident with spontaneity and the unexpected.

Because T1D is just as mental and emotional as it is physical, this series was created to support your mind. The constant demands of T1D can be exhausting, so it's as essential to address mental health and mindset as it is to focus on blood sugar and A1C goals. T1D burnout, acceptance, and relationship with food are often linked together and this series covers all three.Learn more
This series focuses on understanding how insulin works at the cellular level and how to recognize insulin resistance is an important part of taking diabetes management to the next level.
