What is BootCamp for Betics?
BootCamp for Betics is an online SCHOOL for people with diabetes and their caregivers.
Each course within the school will cause you to become an EXPERT on a specific diabetes-related topic.
At BootCamp for Betics, we accompany you on your journey to be a better 'betic - through education, experimentation, motivation, results analysis, and the implementation of positive and sustainable CHANGE, ultimately resulting in better blood sugars and better overall health.
This is not a magic pill. This is not an herbal supplement. This is a seriously hard-core diabetes education.
BootCamp for Betics is NOT for 'betics who want to sit back and wait for things to happen to them. BootCamp for Betics is for people with diabetes (and caregivers) who are ready to take ownership of their condition.
As my sister-in-law says when teaching pre-med students: No other condition requires such active participation by the patient.
So, participate. Activate your enrollment and activate the rest of your life. See you on the flip side.

Hi, I’m Kara.
I have a diabetes educator level 1 certificate from AADE and a couple of bachelors degrees from the U of Arizona. I have a regular day job as a technology consultant, and even though I like my day job, diabetes is my true passion.
I’ve been type 1 diabetic since 1986. I’ve been attending diabetes camps since 1987. I’ve been a camper, a counselor, a staff director and training director at diabetes camps for the last 30 years. My late maternal grandmother had diabetes, and died from complications related thereto. Both of my grandfathers have diabetes, and so do my dad and my uncle. My little brother is hyperinsulinemic, which means that his pancreas is already overproducing insulin to counteract his body's insulin resistance. I hate diabetes!
But guess what. Diabetics aren't doomed. There is a way to have diabetes and still live a long and healthful life, but, at times, it can be hard as hell. Like, really, really, insanely hard. But I’ve finally figured out how to lower my blood sugars and keep my A1C at a reasonable level (5.7-6.3). And it's not easy, and sometimes I screw up, but my method is totally workable for anyone who wants to fix their blood sugar, including you. And I want to share what I’ve learned with you, so that you can be healthy and feel better, too.
With Betic Love,
