What a gift!

Love this team. All of you are so inspiring. I have many friends and acquaintances who have Type I or Type 2 diabetes and all of them, so far as I know are on Keto or SAD cholesterol diets. I became plant based in 2016 to lower cholesterol and, as a result, have become a totally new healthy, happy person. I am pretty much alone in my passion so it’s enjoyable to listen to podcasts such as yours. Thank you so much.

Life Changing!

I stumbled across the Mastering Diabetes team as I was looking for diet suggestions to address prediabetes. These podcasts are fascinating, filled with information and entertaining. I have a health sciences background and I love hearing material that goes deep into the reasons why this approach is effective. I have been following their suggestions for a little over a month. I have lost weight - the last 10 pounds I didn’t dream I could lose- effortlessly. I have more energy, and for some reason, my arthritic knees no longer hurt. I recommend these podcasts to anyone who is interested in the science behind effective lifestyle changes for health.

This podcast today is a BLOCKBUSTER! I have been searching for detailed
accounts of real live endurance athletes with T1D and here it IS: the full scoop on Robbie’s ironman training and competition along with the real numbers for data - blood glucose carbs, foods, heart rate, challenges and victories with CGM and all the management tools WOW - this one is mindblowing a do not miss for endurance athletes or the endurance curious! I am so inspired!!

Transformed despondency to action-filled hope!

I have been a type 1 diabetic for 48 years. For almost 3 decades, my blood sugar control has been nothing but an uncontrolled mystery. Over these years, I gave up listening to any advice on how to control it better. I was despondent. I believed controlling diabetes was nothing but a theoretical myth (it turns out I was living with Double Diabetes, which I learned through this program). The Mastering Diabetes podcast and program has given me the science-based information to transform my despondency to action filled hope and joy. I can now give the tiniest amounts of insulin through my pump and watch my blood sugar react as expected! The information given here is nothing short of a life-changing miracle, except it isn’t a miracle…it is science-based. The only question I am left with now is WHY this information is not the only thing taught to people living with any form of diabetes or pre-diabetes? Why is this information not common knowledge to ALL people? Thank you, Robbie and Cyrus! You’ve added time and quality to my life! I am now part of your small coaching group with Wendi and I LOVE it!!!
