Episode 095 - Diabetics Doing Balance in New Zealand with Samantha Northcott

Today’s guest joins us from New Zealand! Samantha Northcott (@findbalance.nz on Instagram) takes some time to join Diabetics Doing Things and share her story. Samantha was diagnosed at age 24, but felt it was a long time coming. After some blood work, the hospital called and told her to pack a bag. Since then, she’s been part of the T1D family!

Samantha and I discuss what she’s learned along the way, such as: taking on her own journey, managing her body, and how to care for her well-being through the process. Her experience goes hand-in-hand with her career, as she is a nutritionist, and gets to share some of that wisdom today.

Further, we get into different forms of exercise and how to find one that works for you. We talk about food and diet and some simple ways to ensure that you are feeding your body what it needs. We also talk about finding balance and how to make sure you are happy in the present, but also in the years to come.

Most importantly, Samantha tells us that everything is going to be alright. Hit play and show her some love!
