Diabetic Beauty Queen Rocks the Insulin Pump!

>> Monday, July 28, 2014

A shout out and a big High Five! goes out to Sierra Sandison this week. She's a type 1 diabetic who just won the Miss Idaho 2014 beauty pageant - wearing her insulin pump proudly for all to see, from evening wear to the bikini contest!

This has sparked the #ShowMeYourPump campaign, a Twitter campaign for awareness of diabetes and pumps, where diabetics have been invited to tweet pictures of themselves wearing their insulin pumps with pride.

In Sierra's words,

"Diabetes turned my life upside down when I was first diagnosed. Don't let your challenge hold you back or slow you down. Use it to not only empower yourself and grow as an individual, but to serve and influence other people as well."

Inspiring!  Thanks to Bob for the heads' up on this story.

I am excited that you have arrived at my site, and I hope you are too - consider this the first step towards a Healthier New You!! As a medical doctor, Endocrinologist, and obesity specialist, I am absolutely passionate about helping people with weight management. Though there is certainly no magic cure for obesity, there IS a successful treatment plan out there for you - it is all about understanding the elements that contribute to your personal weight struggle, and then finding the treatment plan that suits your needs and your lifestyle. The way to finding your personal solution is to learn as much as you can about obesity: how our toxic environment has shaped us into an overweight society; the diversity of contributors to obesity; and what the treatment options out there are really all about. Knowledge Is Power!!

Are you ready to change your life? Let's begin our journey together, towards a healthier, happier you!!
