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%, they are expecting their first child in September.

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 find new adventures. She dreams of diabetes cures, babies, never-ending cheesecake, and her own airplane. The rest you can discover in her blog!

Blood Sugars in Pregnancy

My last A1c before baby was in early December and clocked in at 6.7%. My CDE told me to keep up the good work. The journey to get to an A1c under 7% before conception was a long one. Since 2014, I’d been actively trying to control my blood sugars as tightly as possible without 1) burning myself o (READ MORE)

Oh Baby, Oh Baby

On January 13th, I went into the reproductive endocrinologist due to several weeks of severe cramping with no sign of my period despite taking Provera to induce my period. Ross and I were driving the hour and a half drive back home when the nurse called. They’d done an ultrasound while I was ther (READ MORE)

Infertility Thoughts

Four months ago, I was not a "day by day" person. I was a total Type A, "let's get everything done yesterday because tomorrow is already booked" woman. I have always been a planner by nature. I am the person who writes a task on my to do list just to scratch it off. I love to be productive and I (READ MORE)
