Diabetes 201: Baseline Blood Sugar Challenge

Pay what you can, when you can - or don't pay at all. It's up to you.

  Enroll in Course

Is your A1C out of target range? You're not alone.

Do you dread going to the doctor? I know what that's like.

Are you sick of fighting what feels like a losing blood sugar battle? Let me tell you a secret:

The first step to lowering your A1C is to flatline your baseline.

When you're ready to really start kicking your blood sugar's butt, join me for my blood sugar jumpstart.

It's 2.5 guided days of baseline testing in 4-8 hour blocks, plus 5 additional days of e-mail lessons. This course provides YOU with the tools to diagnose whether your baseline blood sugar is a flatline, a roller coaster, or something in between.

Look, fasting isn't fun, and neither is poking our fingers every hour during a fasting block. But, fasting DOES work to help diagnose and fix baseline blood sugars.

Once you sign up, I'll provide all the printables, including log forms, instructions and reflection questions, before the event starts.

All you have to do is watch the instructional video, download and print some stuff, check your email every day for a few days, and have enough test strips to get through the 2.5 days of fasting.

Not sure if you're ready? Check out the printable Preparation Checklist to make sure you have everything you need.

This course includes:

-Video instructions
-Printable course materials
-Printable schedule & blood sugar log
-E-mail lessons
-A surprise gift

Most people choose to start this mini-course on a Friday because it is easier to perform fasting activities over the weekend. But you can actually start this course any time.

Please review the preparation instructions (with your doctor, if necessary) before you register.

This is a 7-day online/email course, which includes a one-hour video lecture, blood sugar form downloads, a 2.5 day fasting schedule, Q & A questions sent via email, and reflection questions. Once you're done with this assessment, please submit your results to your doctor or diabetes specialist. You WILL need your own strips to perform this assessment.

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,
