 -- Beyond an Endocrine Problem and Blood Sugar Challenges 

Welcome, I'm glad you're here. What is this site, Blood Sugar Dogs, about ? It's about living beyond an endocrine or blood sugar diagnosis, helping people find their radiance and reach for their full potential.

Blood Sugar Dogs Coaching, (part of Ideas and Insights Consulting, LLC,) is about providing coaching and a combination of standard - and also more esoteric ways to cultivate health, slow aging, and build radiance - despite a dis-ease or blood sugar.

It's about getting in control of your blood sugar, health, and to radiant health.

Feeling confident in knowing how to care for yourself.

 It's also about: 

  • Avoiding the damage possible from blood sugar swings and obesity. 

  • Living with purpose and radiantly.

  • Getting help if you are newly diabetic or struggling with your diagnosis.

  •  If you have a prediabetic condition, becoming healthy enough to avoid the progression to Type 1 or Type 2

  • What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals. â€“ Zig Ziglar

    I've had endocrine disruption diseases such as thyroid and Type 1 diabetes for more than thirty years. My dad did too, and as a PHD, studied and published science on it during his career. 

    I've also been studying both the science of it and ways to approach health despite the diagnosis since.

    So, I've studied all the things found to impact health: diet and nutrition, exercise, sleep, stress-reduction, handling loss and grief. And all sorts of practices for radiance and confidence: handling emotions, loss and grief; Ayurveda, Yoga, Tantra; embodied somatic psychology methods; and coaching, consulting and facilitation -- for more than thirty years. 

    All along, since the beginning, I have been a study participant in the long-term and landmark studies for treating and managing diabetes for long-term health, such as the DCCT and EDIC studies, and more. ðŸ˜¹

    I am ready to share what I've learned with a few select women clients and help them discover the best path to achieve their blood sugar, health, and life goals. 

    According to health tests, my physical age is decades younger than my actual age (who knows? -- but I feel great)!

    I'm offering to help a few clients at a time get the same results by coaching and supporting by sharing methods, approaches, tips, and techniques to help manage your diagnosis (AND building radiant health beyond diabetes.)

    Find free checklists about controlling blood sugars and all about ketones, training your own dog to help with your blood sugar control, and a free invitation to my Saturday Yoga with Diabetes and Dogs, classes, too.

    Karin is a delight to work with as a heath and yoga coach. I look forward to her classes and the insights she brings. Karin is amazing and always looking for new opportunities to support others, and to learn and grow. - RJ

    I suffered a stroke which left me with limited mobility and problems with my balance. Karin, patiently, worked with me; teaching me simple Yoga & exercises which improved my balance increased my mobility. After adding the nutritional and natural supplements that she recommended to my diet, my health improved in many ways. I'm remarkably stronger, more confident, and mobile! - AC 

    I have worked with Karin on numerous efforts throughout my years. I've known her from working with her in Public Health. She is always knowledgeable, reliable, relatable, productive. If I had the need of of requesting her collaboration on my next project, I would certainly do so!  - DH
