Reclaim your Rise Podcast

86. The challenges and rewards of asking for help as a man with type one

October 17, 2023

I cannot wait for you to listen to today’s episode with Risely Coaching Graduate Jesse Hoyt! Jesse was misdiagnosed with type two diabetes eleven years ago at the age of 26. He has always led a busy life traveling and hiking throughout North America, South America, and Europe. Jesse’s wife introduced him to Risely after a particularly high blood sugar night and recommended that he seek help. This led Jesse to embark on a new adventure: a holistic diabetes transformation that helped him realize that he doesn’t have to be perfect and that he can ask for help.
