Sacha took some time out to tell us about how he manages his sugars.┬áHe also told us about his low carb approach to diabetes management. He’s reduced his carb intake and it has given him a huge amount of control over his blood sugars. He uses a @Dexcom constant glucose monitor and an @Animas pump.

He loves what social media like Facebook and Twitter has done for type 1 diabetics: up until 3 years ago he hadn’t met another type 1. Now he gets a chance to learn from all sorts and realise that he’s not alone managing his blood sugars.
