In this week’s episode of We Are T1D: Type 1 Diabetes, Mike and Jack face off with a new challenge: to avoid saying the word “man” throughout the entire show. With a potential forfeit looming over their heads, the stakes are high, and the tension is palpable. Will they succeed or will they be left to the mercy of the infamous hat of consequences?

Mike celebrates a monumental win with his latest HbA1c results, proudly sharing his journey from a 79 to a stellar 50, thanks to his trusty CGM. Jack, on the other hand, boasts a triple-night streak of stable blood sugars, attributing his success to a switch from late-night sweets to a healthier snack routine.

But life with T1D isn’t without its whoopsies, as Mike discovers when he forgets his insulin at home, leading to a frantic workday and a reminder of the importance of preparation. Jack struggles with the opposite problem, finding it difficult to wake up after nights of peaceful, undisturbed sleep due to well-managed levels.

The “Guess the Carbs” segment returns with Mike and Jack putting their carb-counting skills to the test, revealing that even the best can be stumped by the hidden sugars in our meals. Listener wins and struggles are shared, offering a sense of community and support that resonates with anyone living with Type 1 Diabetes.

From hypo-induced eye test hilarity to the unexpected synchronicity of medical appointments, this episode is a rollercoaster ride of emotions, humor, and the raw realities of managing a chronic condition.

Join us for an episode that will have you laughing, nodding in agreement, and maybe even learning a thing or two about the royal family’s mechanical skills. It’s a reminder that while T1D is a part of life, it doesn’t have to overshadow the joy and camaraderie found in shared experiences.
