Lindsey Guerin

Lindsey was diagnosed with Type 1 when she was 4 years old. She is now 27 working as the Vice President in a non-profit. She has not let Type 1 stop her in pursuing an undergraduate and graduate degree, getting married, and traveling the world.


Her diabetes "weapons of choice" are: the Dexcom G5 and the t:slim insulin pump. She married her best friend and biggest supporter last year. After a year of fighting for an A1c under 7%, Lindsey is now fighting to start a family.


In 2007, Lindsey received a diagnosis of PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) and endometriosis. They have made managing diabetes even harder and now add an extra level of chaos to making a baby.


Lindsey is a typical, yet unique, Texas woman who loves shopping, movies and reading. She loves to travel and take risks. She dreams of diabetes cures, babies, never-ending cheesecake, and her own airplane. The rest you can discover in her blog!

It has been a very chaotic month. In the nonprofit world, fall seems to be when everything picks up as we have fundraising events and the launch of new programs.

Finding the Silver Lining


As a Type A personality with a perfectionist streak, diabetes management is something that easily gets under my skin. If I can’t do something perfect, then I’d much rather just not do it at all. Which is why burnout creeps up on me super fast. A few days of pesky numbers and I am ready to throw a (READ MORE)
