    Jen is from the UK and has been living with Type 1 Diabetes since the age of 8. Admittedly, Jen didn’t always have the easiest time with her Diabetes, but it seems as though she’s done a full 180 into the type of Diabetic she is today.

    Jen is an editorial digital producer for TV and brands in the UK. She is massively involved within the diabetes community where she shares amazing tips, info and interviews through her Youtube channel, her blog posts and her podcast, ‘The Type 1 on 1 Podcast’. All available here: (http://missjengrieves.com/).

    Jen offers a detailed insight into her story, how she stays so positive with her Diabetes, and why she feels Diabetes can be very rewarding behind all the chaos.

Thank You Diabetes ,

Life changing podcast!

Eoin and Graham not only make you feel more knowledgeable about diabetes but they also inspire you to love diabetes in a way that I never knew was possible! Thanks so much guys! You rock! -Kate @thankyoudiabetes

Endurance athletes!

I’m incredibly excited to find this!
I’m finding this very therapeutic to connect with another T1D also venturing unchartered territory!
I can relate to much of this because these endurance events can’t be repeated in daily training because it’s that intense!
It’s frustrating to see fluctuations in glucose as trying to ‘figure it out’ but worth the journey!
