DIABETES MANAGEMENT MADE EASY
Whether you have Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes, you’re new to your diagnosis or have been dealing with it for years; it’s easy to get overwhelmed with day-to-day diabetes management. It can also be frustrating when you feel like you know more about diabetes then your physician and feel like you don’t have anyone who understands or can help. However, you don’t need to struggle alone or travel to a big city for expert care. I can help you create a team (you, your physician and me the certified diabetes educator), to develop a comprehensive individualized plan of care that will assure optimal diabetes health and wellness. Your plan will include regular health check-ups and individual consultation to meet your specific needs. Let me help you make diabetes management easier.
DIABETES & EXERCISE
Regular physical activity offers the benefits of health, longevity, and improved quality of life, especially for people with Diabetes. However, understanding the intricacies of blood sugar control and exercise can be difficult and often leads to avoiding it all together. Even if you have great support from your health care team or have years of experience with Diabetes, the complex interplay of variables that can contribute to high/low blood sugars while working out can be overwhelming. It is my unique background in sports nutrition, exercise physiology and diabetes management that allows me to provide much needed assistance. Whether you are trying to manage your blood sugars while in the gym, doing yoga, running, hiking outdoors, participating in sports or while training/racing in extreme endurance events; I can help you put together a completely individualized plan that will turn FRUSTRATION into FREEDOM to enjoy exercise with both blood sugar control and improved performance.
"Marcey Robinson has helped me tremendously as I trained for Ironman Arizona. As an athlete with type 1 diabetes, I sought her help with fueling, nutrition, and insulin dosing during long training sessions and races. Marcey has taught me to fuel far more effectively than I was doing previously and how to manage both my basal and bolus doses of insulin - the result has been that I have increased power while swimming, biking and running! In addition to being "spot on" in identifying changes I needed to make regarding managing my diabetes, Marcey is accessible, provides great follow up, and easy to talk to. I highly recommend reaching out to her."
