D-Story: Asha Brown



February’s Diabetes Late Nite features special guest, Asha Brown who hosts Type 1 TV (T1TV), an independent voice on living with type 1 diabetes.

T1TV programs aims to inform, educate and inspire with on demand programming.

T1TV host, Asha Brown is the founder of the We Are Diabetes organization. She was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes when she was 5 years old. Throughout her childhood, diabetes was simply a way of life because her father had type 1 diabetes most of his life as well. She didn’t mind being a little different than her friends and never had a problem explaining type 1 diabetes to anyone who had questions. In fact, diabetes never created an obstacle in Asha’s life until she was old enough to understand that her weight and body size were not completely under her own control.

As a dancer, actress and a fitness instructor by the time she was 17, Asha lived for movement and her body’s ability to feel good in its own skin. After reading many articles and books that gave a daunting account of weight gain associated with insulin resistance and diabetes, Asha felt the first stirring of resentment towards a disease she felt was dooming her to an inability to have the physical strength and shape that she knew she deserved and could achieve. And so she started to omit insulin occasionally when it was “necessary” to get things done.

T1TV presents original programming – available several times per month. Some programs will be presented in a mini-series manner since programs are meant to be short and easy to take in any time of the day – any – any time your busy schedule permits.

Don’t miss the dazzling diabetes advocate, Asha Brown on February’s Diabetes Late Nite podcast scheduled for Tuesday, February 10, 2015, 6-7 PM, EST.
