Episode 017 - Diabetics Doing Body Positivity with Rebecca Ryan

Rebecca Ryan joins the Diabetics Doing Things podcast from Wellington, New Zealand to talk about her journey with T1D. We talk about living with her diagnosis following her first year of University (or “Uni” as they say in NZ), and going through various phases of acceptance. 

Rebecca gives one of the most energetic interviews ever on the podcast, and provides us a very personal look at the struggles she went through with body positivity, diabulemia, lifestyle changes, diet & exercise, all while balancing her personal life & career. We discuss photography, musical theatre, the importance of community, difference between Diabetes measurements in the U.S. vs. the rest of the world and everything in between.
