Scott is a Lifesaver

I want to thank Scott Benner so much!
I planned to attend the Type One Nation summit in Oklahoma City in January of 2020.
I had never heard of this podcast or his blog before. I saw he was the special guest at the summit, so I looked into who he was. This happened back in October of 2019. At that point in time my A1c was 11.9 and not getting better. I started listening to the podcast immediately. By the time the summit came I was only down to 11.2. After hearing him speak and talking to him at the summit, I continued listening. I listened to the list he suggested and by March my A1c was down to a 6.9! By mid April I’m finally at a 5.2, the lowest I’ve been in my life. I owe it all to Scott and this podcast. I can’t put into words how much Scott and this podcast means to me.
If you get the chance to see Scott live at an event, I strongly urge you to attend.
Thank you,
Jacob Seeley

Do or do not, there is no try

Scott Benner you are the Yoda of diabetes! I just binge listened to the pro tips and learned so much! It’s been a struggle the last year and my husband and I have been stressed out and exhausted. I actually feel now I can sleep at night, leave him with a babysitter and just breath 😌 I’m not afraid to do what I need to manage my sons diabetes, I’m bold with insulin without fear because Im armed with knowledge. Thank you for being real and laying it all out there.

So much more than a diabetes podcast!

Hi Scott! I just wanted to say thank you again. Since we saw you in February, I have binged the podcast so much. We were on MDI until just this past week (got the Omnipod)! We had a pretty decent A1C for our son in January at his last in person endo of 6.3. But it has crept up as he was leaving honeymoon and I was still feeling so confined by the rules they tell you; wait a week for trends before you change stuff, don’t correct overnight unless he is sick, don’t correct anything unless over 200. Anyway, since we saw you speak, we have really changed the way we see management to much more fluid. (Believe me, it has made for a few interesting convos with the ending: why did you bolus that snack, why did you correct higher than his approved correction factor for this non-sick high overnight. Answer, I knew he needed it). But because of you and your podcast, we have changed the way we see it all. We are feeling more in control, more confident, less like diabetes controls us, or blood sugars happen to us. And with that confidence and trust in our gut, we are happier and less anxious about managing in all types of situations. AND, as if that’s not enough, we just got his A1C checked for the first time since January (cuz you know, COVID) and his A1C came down to 5.8 while still on MDI and leaving honeymoon! We just started Omnipod this week, so it is a learning curve on how he reacts to this new management style, but I know we can learn it. Although I admit I’ve already fought with the CDE over why we need to wait 5 days to see trends and make a change. I did get them to let us change his basal after just 2 nights. And now on day 4 of pumping, we were in range 90% yesterday with a range of 75-150! Thank you for all you do. We wouldn’t be here today without you. We would still be feeling stuck, frustrated, that diabetes was doing stuff to us, that we couldn’t take back control of our sons health or our lives. Your podcast has become my lifeline when I am feeling overwhelmed. It makes me feel happy and calmer, and always gives me perspective. Yes it is a diabetes management tool, but it has improved my mental state and quality of life too. Thank you!
