Alex’s Success Story

Alex’s Success Story

Hi, I’m Alex Brown, CEO of Diabetes Support Network!

Alex Brown, CEO of Diabetes Support Network

Being diagnosed at the age of 15 with T1D, I felt my world crumble…

Not only did my life change, my love for sports, fitness and the outdoors did as well.

I had a lot of frustration around my favorite activities because my blood sugar was all over the place and I didn’t have the resources to help me through it.

I founded Diabetes Support Network so other people with diabetes have the resources to enjoy the activities that they love doing.

My Background

I have over 10 years of experience with diabetes management, exercise and diabetes education.

I am the author and creator of Level-1 Diabetes Certification Program for Health and Fitness Professionals, the eBook Diabetes Management: A Type-1’s Perspective, and thesis The Effects of Blood Glucose Levels on Type-1 Diabetic Athletic Performance.  

I received my bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from Colorado State University and a master’s degree in Nutrition and Human performance from Logan University.

In my personal life, I love spending time with my wife, hiking any Colorado mountain trial, CrossFit and travelling.  

Diabetes Support Network is here to help reduce the prevalence of diabetes before the year 2030.
