Show Notes

In this episode, co-hosts Sami (type 1) and Dobie (type 2) discuss a foreign topic for Dobie, ‘Diabetes and the Menstrual Cycle’. All you ladies listening, perk up and learn how to manage blood glucose levels during the stubborn times in your cycle. And men, if you think you are off the hook, nope.
Listen up and take some notes for the other team. Sami shares a brief overview of the phases of this 28-day cycle and describes the hormone levels that occur alongside the blood sugars that typically result from the changes in hormone levels. It’s a content-filled episode.

C’est la vie, baby!
