Dr. Elana Dumont is here with us on the podcast today to discuss navigating ADHD and T1D. This is Elana’s second time on the show (she was on episode 4!) and we’re super excited to welcome her back.
Elana is a NY State licensed clinical psychologist specializing in working with children, teens, and adults with mood and anxiety disorders. She was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes when she was 23 years old and is a passionate member of Risely’s Advisory Board.
In this episode, we talk about...
- The parts of executive functioning that people with ADHD experience and how they show up when paired with diabetes
- The specific challenges and solutions around hyper-fixation on blood sugars
- The steps for getting yourself motivated to complete tasks, emotional regulation, staying organized
- …and much more!
