Alex’s Success Story
Hi, I’m 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.
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.
