We all know that achieving excellent blood sugar control can be challenging. To make things easier for new & experienced T1Ds, I decided to write and illustrated T1D Pro, the book, as a way to convey my proven methods for managing Type 1 diabetes.
In order to reach as many people, as quickly as possible, I decided to release T1D Pro on Amazon’s global marketplace. It’s available in E-book and print formats all around the world!
T1D Pro is written & illustrated to provide you a clear-cut blood sugar management G.U.I.D.E. covering five critical areas: Glucose Visibility, Understanding, Insulin, Diet, & Exercise. The reads as “UGIDE” to cover Understanding first. See below for a few highlights from each chapter.
Chapter 1. Understanding
T1D Pro starts by reviewing the foundational understanding of Type 1 diabetes, A1C, and the effects of high and low blood sugar. The chapter ends with a deep-dive understanding of the goals of a Type 1 diabetic.
Chapter 2. Glucose Visibility
If you haven’t already been convinced to wear a continuous glucose monitor (CGM), T1D Pro’s second chapter might convince you. In this chapter, we go in-depth about why CGMs matter, how to use them, and my personal setup.
Chapter 3. Insulin
With a variety of insulin types and delivery methods available to Type 1 diabetics, making the right choice can be confusing. In Chapter 3 I cover the pros and cons of the popular insulin delivery methods, point out the risks of each, and teach you how to become an “insulin master”.
Chapter 4. Diet
Becoming aware of what your eating, and when you eat it is a powerful tool for all Type 1 diabetics. In Chapter 4 we discuss how I manage my diet in order to eat what I want while still maintaining world-class blood sugars.
Chapter 5. Exercise
Exercise is the great equalizer for Type 1 diabetics. In Chapter 5 we review how best to exercise as a T1D, and the pitfalls to avoid. I also walk you through my daily exercise routine and preparation.
The “Free” 8 Hours – Sleep
Believe it or not, a solid 8 hours of sleep is possible…even for Type 1 diabetics.
In Chapter 6 I walk you through the routine that I swear by to ensure quality sleep each and every night.
On Amazon I offer two versions of T1D Pro. The first is a print version. (All illustrations will be printed in high def. black and white.) In total it’s 112 pages. Easy to understand. Easy to read. I recommend taking T1D Pro 1 chapter at a time to make sure the material sets in properly.
The second is an E-book version that’s readable on any E-book / Kindle compatible device. These include smartphones, tablets, and more. All you have to do is download the Kindle App and buy the Kindle version on Amazon.
