  • Diabetes Specialist Nurse James Ridgeway: I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes on shift

    23 MAG 2024 · It is apparent from the minute you meet James Ridgeway that he is one of life’s good guys. A Diabetes Specialist Nurse and Education Research Associate living in Leicestershire with his partner Stacey and son Alfie, it was his own type 1 diabetes diagnosis in 2012 while on shift as a student nurse that set him on his professional path.   James is incredibly passionate about diabetes education, and as well as supporting diabetes patients in clinic through his role as a DSN, part of his job is delivering diabetes education to other healthcare professionals through the renowned https://www.edendiabetes.com/. He also runs an innovative https://www.podding.co.uk/ to help people connect with others living with type 1 diabetes.   Through both living and working with type 1 diabetes, James is well aware that on average people with diabetes have just one hour of healthcare professional support each year. With his blend of lived experience, healthcare knowledge and belief in the importance of peer support, this episode offers a unique and encouraging perspective on living a better, less isolated life with type 1 diabetes.   CONNECT WITH JAMES: https://x.com/James_Ridgeway_ https://www.edendiabetes.com/ https://www.podding.co.uk/ https://www.england.nhs.uk/long-read/language-matters-language-and-diabetes/ JOIN THE TYPE 1 ON 1 COMMUNITY https://www.instagram.com/studiotype1on1   SPONSOR MESSAGE:  Thanks to my episode sponsors Dexcom.  Pioneer and leader in Real-Time continuous glucose monitors, Dexcom's goal is to simplify and improve diabetes management for every possible person with diabetes.   They have a choice of systems, so you can find the right one for your lifestyle at https://www.dexcom.com/

  • The schoolboy who set up a diabetes charity with Lochlan and Lesley Murdoch

    16 MAG 2024 · My guest today are Lochlan Murdoch and his mum, Lesley.   Lochlan was just four when he was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. Now 15, Lochlan has always had a deep love of football, but a serious leg injury at the age of nine left him unable to play his beloved sport. The subsequent impact on Lochlan’s blood sugars and his mental health inspired him to organise a stadium marathon, walking 28 miles in four days around the Scottish Premier Football League stadiums. But that was just the beginning - in 2020, the charity Lochlan’s Legacy was lauched with the aim to break barriers and reduce stigma around type 1 diabetes in Scotland and beyond.  In the few short years since the charity's inception, it's already made an immeasurable difference spreading knowledge and awareness of type 1 diabetes through sport. With the help of some national funding, the support of Lochlan's beloved Kilmarnock FC and his mum Lesley working tirelessly for the charity as well as countless other organisations, there's no stopping Lochlan who says, 'I just want to help people.'

  • Australia's First T1D Commercial Pilot Dr Jeremy Robertson

    9 MAG 2024 · This is no ordinary episode, but Aviation Medical Officer and Boeing 737 First Officer Dr Jeremy Robertson is no ordinary man. This undeniably extraordinary story takes us on a 14 year journey, back to 2010 when 31-year-old Jeremy, from Sydney Australia, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes while on a training course in the United States. He was still wearing his uniform when he was told to hand over his pilot’s licence in the doctor’s office, such were the restrictions banning type 1s from flying commercial planes at the time. He was also weeks away from getting married.   Heartbroken, Jeremy returned to Australia the next day, and soon turned his attention to retraining as a medical doctor. Fast forward many years and having gathered an incredible amount of medical knowledge, as well as his own experience as a type 1 and a precedent in regulation changes set by the UK and Canada, Jeremy set about gathering the hundreds of hours of flying data required in smaller aircraft to propose a case to change the medical restrictions in Australia.    Step by step, over many years and with many setbacks along the way (not least a global pandemic that halted the entire aviation industry), Jeremy checked in as the first officer of his first commercial flight in 14 years just a few weeks ago, having successfully changed the restrictions to obtain a class 1 aviation medical. In doing so, he’s changed the prospects for aspiring type 1 pilots in Australia, forever.    I told you it was extraordinary...   CONNECT WITH JEREMY: https://www.instagram.com/type_1_pilot/   JOIN THE TYPE 1 ON 1 COMMUNITY https://www.instagram.com/studiotype1on1   SPONSOR MESSAGE: Thanks to my episode sponsors Dexcom.  Pioneer and leader in Real-Time continuous glucose monitors, Dexcom's goal is to simplify and improve diabetes management for every possible person with diabetes.   They have a choice of systems, so you can find the right one for your lifestyle at https://www.dexcom.com/

  • The psychology of food and type 1 diabetes with nutritional therapist Beth Edwards

    25 APR 2024 · ‘We can do everything with type 1, but we can’t do everything.’   Beth Edwards is the kind of person with whom you instantly feel safe and seen. Through her work as a nutritional therapist, she encompasses a holistic approach to health, food, stress and type 1 diabetes in order to help people living with the condition reset their relationship with food.   Beth has helped countless people break free of the stigmas, shame and isolation that can overwhelm people with diabetes, particularly in relation to the complex relationship many have with the foods they eat, helping them to discover a sense of empowerment and enjoyment at mealtimes. Beth has been able to blend her psychological training, nutritional expertise and her own lived experience in her practice, having lived with type 1 diabetes since she was nine years old.  In this meaty episode (excuse the pun!) we chat through Beth’s own journey with her type 1, her motivations for wanting to help people with diabetes in ways that are often out of reach within the time constraints of hospital appointments, as well as ways in which people can start addressing their food and glucose level frustrations. She also offers loads of practical advice around mealtime rituals, dosing timing, insulin sensitivity, sleep, post-meal spikes and so much more. This episode filled my cup right up - I hope it satisfies your emotional cravings too!  CONNECT WITH BETH: https://www.instagram.com/bethedwardsnutrition/ https://www.bethedwardsnutrition.com/ JOIN THE TYPE 1 ON 1 COMMUNITY https://www.instagram.com/studiotype1on1 SPONSOR MESSAGE: Thanks to my episode sponsors Insulet, the founders of Pod Therapy - only found with Omnipod.    Pod Therapy uses a tubeless, wearable and waterproof Pod that continuously delivers insulin for up to three days.   Controlled wirelessly by its handheld companion, it allows you to personalise your insulin doses according to your own daily needs - no multiple daily injections and no tubes.   Head to https://www.omnipod.com// to find out more.

  • The Diaries Check In: Ami Bennayyy Says Heyyy

    18 APR 2024 · Look who it is, Ami Bennett has returned to the podcast airwaves! In a break from regularly scheduled programming, my type 1 friend Ami and co-host of spin-off series Type 1 on 1: The Diaries pops in to give us a little life update, as it has somehow been a whole year since she said hello on the podcast. We have a lovely catch up and hear about how she's getting on with her hard-won insulin pump 18 months in, and then she grills me on my new gadget - the hybrid closed loop system, which it's fair to say has had quite the impact on my life. It's not all about gadgets though, as in true Jen and Ami style there are plenty of escapades to report and a silly joke or two. We talk about how Ami's disappearing hypo symptoms have conversely made her less anxious about having them, whether there is such a thing as a pleasant hypo experience (chocolate in bed, anyone?) and we find out Ami's less than affectionate names for her different basal programmes. You've got to keep it entertaining, right? If you fancy some deep chats with a couple of friends as well as a bit of light relief when it comes to the chaos that is type 1 diabetes, you're in the right place! https://notesonamoment.substack.com/p/the-biggest-thing-to-happen-to-me CONNECT WITH AMI: https://www.instagram.com/amilovesyoumore/ JOIN THE TYPE 1 ON 1 COMMUNITY We’ve got an Instagram account! https://www.instagram.com/studiotype1on1/ SPONSOR MESSAGE: Thanks to my episode sponsors Insulet, the founders of Pod Therapy - only found with Omnipod.    Pod Therapy uses a tubeless, wearable and waterproof Pod that continuously delivers insulin for up to three days.   Controlled wirelessly by its handheld companion, it allows you to personalise your insulin doses according to your own daily needs - no multiple daily injections and no tubes.   Head to https://www.omnipod.com/ to find out more.

  • We nearly lost our son, and now we're on a superhero mission to help others with Gary Rapson

    11 APR 2024 · I am always left completely humbled and in awe when I speak to the parents of children with type 1 diabetes, and this episode is no different. And it brings with it a superhero... by the name of Captain Lantus.   Captain Lantus is the brain child of 10-year-old Max Rapson, brought to life by his dad Gary, today’s guest. Gary and his wife Sarah were plunged into a living nightmare back in 2014 when Max slipped into a coma at just 18 months old. What followed was months of around the clock care to keep their baby happy and healthy after a terrifying type 1 diabetes diagnosis.    When Max was 3, an insulin pump changed Gary and Sarah’s lives, but for Max it was a different story. He would run away from site changes to get away from the device he just didn’t want to be attached to. Aged 6, Max came home from school with an idea that his insulin pump was in fact his superpower, and their children’s book, The Adventures of Captain Lantus, was born.    Since then Gary, Sarah and Max, with the help of some trusty sidekicks and a brilliant community, have been on a mission to get their books to newly diagnosed children all over world to help them to feel empowered by, rather than afraid of, the possibilities of diabetes technology.   This episode covers a lot, from the trauma of that terrifying diagnosis, two parents finding their way in the dark, to the advancement of technology and the mission to make sure no child is scared of it the way that Max understandably was. Now 10, Max is confident and thriving, and the family is working hard to spread the message of Captain Lantus around the world to help newly diagnosed families.    Heartbreaking, uplifting and inspiring - this is a powerful episode and I can’t thank Gary enough for the service he’s done for other type 1 parents by sharing his story.   CONNECT WITH GARY AND CAPTAIN LANTUS: https://www.instagram.com/clantus77/ https://www.facebook.com/clantus77/ https://www.captainlantus.com/ https://www.gofundme.com/f/captain-lantus-guardian-of-beta-town JOIN THE TYPE 1 ON 1 COMMUNITY We’ve got an Instagram account! https://www.instagram.com/studiotype1on1/ SPONSOR MESSAGE: Thanks to my episode sponsors Insulet, the founders of Pod Therapy - only found with Omnipod.    Pod Therapy uses a tubeless, wearable and waterproof Pod that continuously delivers insulin for up to three days.   Controlled wirelessly by its handheld companion, it allows you to personalise your insulin doses according to your own daily needs - no multiple daily injections and no tubes.   Head to https://www.omnipod.com/ to find out more.

  • 'Diabetes makes you dig deep to find out who you are' - Mohammad AlBahar

    4 APR 2024 · Today’s guest is Mohammad AlBahar, also known as @thediabetictraveler. Diagnosed at just two years old, he’s witnessed mammoth changes in diabetes managed since he was diagnosed in 1985.  Moh is the founder of the Diabetes Ambassadors Program, a non-profit in Kuwait that works to empower people living with diabetes by advocating for the needs and rights of those living with the condition.   As well as peer support and education, the foundation is currently working towards establishing new laws for people with diabetes in the workplace.    Moh reveals how existing as the best version of himself possible is the most powerful tool he has to challenge misconceptions, while crucially understanding that changing a person’s perspective cannot be forced.   We also talk about burnout, fitness, the challenges of airport security, the psychology of diabetes and most importantly, why Lego is Moh’s not-so-secret superpower when it comes to dealing with the mental load of diabetes.   CONNECT WITH MOH: https://www.instagram.com/thediabetictraveler/. https://www.instagram.com/diabetes_ambassadors_program/.

  • An IVF journey to motherhood with type 1 diabetes with Katie Pell

    28 MAR 2024 · Oh my goodness, this episode <3   Jewellery designer and all-round lovely woman Katie Pell was days away from giving birth when she agreed to speak to me about her road to motherhood with type 1 diabetes.   Primose Florence Pell entered this world with a leap on February 29th 2024, just a week later!   Katie’s journey with type 1 diabetes, not to mention becoming a mum, has had its challenges. It includes some incredibly difficult periods of frustration and despair, not only for her health and mental wellbeing, but for the gap in the system she found herself in between her diabetes team and the IVF clinic Katie couldn’t access until her glucose levels hit an incredibly unforgiving range.    Diabetes technology changed her life. ‘Closed loop is the only reason I have a baby,’ she says, which is as heart-stopping as it is hopeful for anyone on this road.    This is a story about hope, of support systems, of understanding what it means to be human, to have feelings about wanting to be well not only for yourself, but for those in your life - and those you hope to bring into this world.   It’s ultimately a story about love, in all of its forms.   Katie candidly opens up about the decision to start a family, the interactions she had with healthcare professionals, the toil type 1 diabetes has taken on her headspace, her relationship with food and being in partnership when diabetes decides to gatecrash more than one life. She's also an incredible jeweller, so take a look at her work!   CONNECT WITH KATIE: https://www.instagram.com/cruxlondon/ https://www.instagram.com/theworkbenchldn/ https://www.instagram.com/bethedwardsnutrition/.

  • The Human Trial: Where is the cure for type 1 diabetes? With Lisa Hepner

    21 MAR 2024 · Not everyone loves a deep chat as much as I do, but documentary film maker Lisa Hepner really went there with me as we plunged the depths of the rollercoaster that is type 1 diabetes, in an episode I’ve been thinking about eve since we recorded. In a way I felt like I was speaking to someone I already knew.    Lisa knows more about type 1 diabetes than most. Not only has she lived with the condition since she was diagnosed in 1991 aged 21, she spent over a decade filming, writing, directing and producing The Human Trial - a film that closely follows the progress of a radical stem cell trial hoping cure type 1 diabetes for good.   As heart-wrenching as it is inspirational, The Human Trial follows the personal journeys of both the patients and the researchers who risk everything to go first, in a bid change the future for all of us living with this condition. It left me deeply confronted and incredibly hopeful, and in this episode we get the inside story.   WATCH THE HUMAN TRIAL: https://www.thehumantrial.com/. https://www.amazon.com/Human-Trial-Lisa-Hepner/dp/B0B6GWBV2T. https://tv.apple.com/us/movie/the-human-trial/umc.cmc.2zsyhmy28zsemmkbd1f57we1x. https://www.instagram.com/thehumantrial/.   JOIN THE TYPE 1 ON 1 COMMUNITY We’ve got an Instagram account!

  • 'We are different but not less' - How Moataz Hisham is helping young people to open up about type 1 diabetes

    14 MAR 2024 · Moataz Hisham is a full-time engineer, part-time fitness coach and unofficial diabetes superhero for young people with type 1 diabetes in Egypt.   Childhood in Alexandria was interrupted when Moataz was diagnosed with type 1 in 1997 at the age of 11, but his pharmacist parents quickly helped him to adapt to not only the physical challenges of type 1 diabetes, but the psychological difficulties too. Despite this incredible support and unwavering inner resilience, Moataz spent years hiding his type 1 from his friends due to misconceptions he faced from his peers. It would take until 2018 and a DKA experience for him to reach the final acceptance stage of what he calls ‘The 5 Phases of Diabetes’. Throwing himself into research, education and Crossfit, Moataz found new strength to open up about his condition. Using just his phone, he launched an online format called ‘Diabetips’ from his son’s bedroom in 2022 to share some of this wisdom.   But in a very short amount of time, the platform evolved far beyond that bedroom. ‘Diabetetips Talks’ is now a professional studio production in which Moataz interviews young people with type 1 diabetes to make sure children living with the condition can see themselves reflected, showcasing what he describes as ‘the unbreakable human spirit of young people living the diabetes journey’.   This is such an interesting and inspiring episode. Moataz lights up when he talks about sharing stories with young people, empowering children with type 1 diabetes AND their parents to understand that ‘we are different, not less.’  CONNECT WITH MOATAZ https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCuih_4FN_jEOBqVavfxNCAQ https://www.instagram.com/moataz_hisham/ JOIN THE TYPE 1 ON 1 COMMUNITY We’ve got an Instagram account! https://www.instagram.com/studiotype1on1   SPONSOR MESSAGE: Thanks to my episode sponsors Insulet, the founders of Pod Therapy - only found with Omnipod.    Pod Therapy uses a tubeless, wearable and waterproof Pod that continuously delivers insulin for up to three days.  Controlled wirelessly by its handheld companion, it allows you to personalise your insulin doses according to your own daily needs - no multiple daily injections and no tubes.   Head to https://www.omnipod.com/ to find out more.
