Understanding you, I'm a diabetic too.
My name is Miles Jackson and I'm the Founder of Dealing with Diabetes. As a lifelong diabetic, I've walked in your shoes and understand the endless day to day challenges. My team will support you and your family, and help you to become more familiar and comfortable living with the diabetes.
Dealing with Diabetes is a lifestyle coaching and consultant group to support type-1 diabetics (T1D) and their families. We provide key resources and insights to people and families living with the disease. Being diagnosed at the age of six, Miles Jackson has a lifetime of diabetes experiences and expertise. Our team works with diabetics and their families to help them better understand and manage the highs and lows.
Diabetes affects us all differently, so we work with you to develop the skill sets and best practices for your life; including ways to talk about T1D with family, friends, teachers, coaches and colleagues. We'll support you in exploring diet, exercise, and management methods to improve your lifestyle and comfortability with T1D.
Where We Can Help.
LIFESTYLE AND EXERCISE
Diabetes is different for every diabetic. Depending on your lifestyle, your genetic and physical make up, and what your day to day life looks like. We may both be type-1 diabetics, but the disease affects us all differently depending on your work schedule, what you eat, and a list of man other factors.
It’s important for everyone, regardless of being diabetic, to eat healthy and stay nourished. For diabetics, however, it’s absolutely essential. The better I eat, the healthier I feel, and the easier it is for me to manage my life with diabetes.
Not everyone needs to know you’re a diabetic, but it’s critical that your colleagues, friends and loved ones know you have T1D and how to help you in case of emergency. Further, it’s crucial that these people know how to read your body language in case your BG is going low or high, and how to respond to these unfavorable situations.
