HI, I'M DR. MARK HEYMAN

Episode #62: How to Exercise with Confidence

Tune In: Apple Podcasts | Spotify

Nothing makes people with T1D more anxious than the thought of having a low blood sugar during exercise.

Exercise with T1D can feel like a big black hole. You never know what to expect.

Anxiety about exercise makes some people stop before they even get started, and other people tread very lightly with physical activity when they would rather go all out.

What if you were able to exercise with confidence?

In this episode of The Diabetes Psychologist Podcast, you’ll find out how! My guest on this episode is Christel Oerum. Christel is a personal trainer who has been living with T1D since 1997. Her passion is helping people exercise safely and confidently with T1D. Christel is the founder of Diabetes Strong, a platform where people living with diabetes can find all the information they need to live healthy and active lives. We talk about what you can do to reduce your anxiety and gain confidence so you can get more active (even if your blood sugar goes low!).
