125. Newly Diagnosed: What We Wish Someone Told Us About T1D

June 25, 2024

As Coach Neil says, this is the episode he needed when he was first diagnosed. If you’ve been diagnosed with type one diabetes, type 1.5, or LADA within the past 12 months, or are a parent of a child with T1D, this is a must listen. But even if you were diagnosed years ago, you will get something out of this conversation! Coach Neil and I are sifting through all the misinformation and information overload to get you EXACTLY what you need to know in order to thrive with diabetes.
