Reclaim Your Rise: Type 1 Diabetes with Lauren Bongiorno
Unlearning perfectionism with T1D Dietician Bridget Wood
Show Notes

In this week’s episode, I’m joined by Bridget Wood to discuss forming a healthy relationship with food as T1Ds. We dive into our own personal histories with food, struggles with perfectionism, and our relationship with food now. 

Bridget is a licensed dietician, nutritionist, and CDCES based in Nevada who has been living with type one diabetes since she was a senior in high school. 

In this episode, we talk about… 

  • Questioning our beliefs surrounding food and T1D
  • Finding that fine line between having in-range blood sugars and preventing future complications not just on a physical level, but also on a mental level
  • Chasing straight line CGM graph lines and if that is even attainable
  • The importance of competent cultural care with type one diabetes and food

I am so excited to share this talk with Bridget because I feel that it’s important to hear from diabetes healthcare professionals who live with type one diabetes themselves.
