About Me

Hi everyone!

My name’s Matt Collins and I’m an experienced medical device professional, dad, husband, and Type 1 diabetic. I’ve experienced success controlling my blood sugars via the methods outlined in T1D Pro; my first non-fiction. As of November 2019, my last 4 A1Cs were 5.2%, 5.4%, 5.3%, and 5.2% respectively…something I’m extremely proud of because great blood sugars allow me to feel…like me!

I’m 37 years old and currently live in Miami, Florida with my wife, baby, and dog where I enjoy competitive daily tennis matches. For vacation, I typically pack up the family (poodle and all) and fly to wherever I’ve scouted the year before. Our most recent trip was to Tokyo, Japan during cherry blossom season (I highly recommend this). For work, I travel from Miami to (name just about any location in Latin America) about twice per month.

Overall, life is good–despite T1D.

Thank you so much for visiting t1dpro.com! I hope the blog gives you a better understanding of all-things Type 1 diabetes. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.
