87. Takeaways from 6 Weeks without a CGM with Coach Trista

October 24, 2023

Trista Johnson returns to the pod! Trista is a nationally board-certified health coach on the Risely team. She was diagnosed at the age of four, and her work as an educator and learning specialist naturally led her into the role of head coach in our family group coaching program. In this episode, Trista recaps her experience going without a CGM for six weeks. She shares the ups and downs and in-betweens, as well as her experience growing up with a father with T1D, their relationship, and how it's changed over the years.
