From Emotional Meltdowns to Rising Up with 90%+ Time in Range: How this RN and T1D Made it Happen

March 28, 2023

I’m so excited for you to listen to today’s episode with my friend Bridget Ruter! Bridget works in healthcare as a Registered Nurse. She’s 27 years old and was diagnosed with type one at the age of six. 

Bridget is a graduate of Risley's Spring 2022 Decide and Conquer Group Coaching Program. This past year, she's completely shifted her mindset and relationship with diabetes from a place of isolation and frustration to community and acceptance. Before the DCB, Bridget had never been below a 6.8 A1C. Three months after, she lowered it to a 6.2, and now nine months later, she's below a 6.0 with 90%+ time in range! 

In today's episode, we go beneath these numbers and discuss...

  • What was holding Bridget back from authentic transformation with her diabetes
  • How she let go of hiding her diabetes from the world and started prioritizing herself 
  • How Bridget found her correct rates and ratios 
  • What it was like to re-learn the “basics” of T1D as a nurse 

We are now enrolling for our Spring  2023 Decide and Conquer Group Coaching Program. If you are curious about the transformation Bridget talks about in this episode, learn more about the DCB and apply HERE.
