#73: Life With Diabetes - How to Manage & Thrive, with Phil Graham

Diabetes is the second most prevalent health condition globally, and continues to surge at epidemic proportions. Considered a modern lifestyle disease, it’s worth us all getting grounded on what Diabetes is, in the hope to prevent our health unknowingly declining, or to spot and successfully manage the condition. 

So whilst you may not be clinically diagnosed with Type 2 or Type 1 Diabetes, there’s a very good chance that people you know will have the condition, and with naivety could become diabetic yourself.

To tackle this critical topic, we managed to pin down the world renowned leader in this field - Phil Graham. In spite of of having the autoimmune Type 1 Diabetes condition, Phil has thrived across all areas of his life.

Through his obsession to manage his potentially fatal condition, Phil has not been defined by Diabetes. Instead, he became a Mr Universe bodybuilder, a coach, an author and a successful fitness business entrepreneur. Phil authored the leading book in its category - Diabetic Muscle & Fitness Guide, and is invited to speak all over the world on the topic of Diabetes and managing fitness businesses.


In this short but information packed interview, we discuss:

1️⃣ Phil’s childhoodand being diagnosed as Type 1 Diabetic in his teens
