This is the concluding episode of the interview between Clint Crabtree, MMA Champion, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Blackbelt and Owner of Grand Rapids Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. In this final part of the interview with Clint, he explains in more detail how he manages his diet combined with exercise and how it’s redefining the way we think about living with diabetes type 1 or type 2. If you have diabetes, want to prevent diabetes or maybe know someone who is diabetic, you won’t want to miss this final part of a very enlightening interview.
RoyOnRescue has the honor of interviewing a local Mixed Martial Arts champion, Black-Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and owner of a thriving BJJ/MMA and Health Improvement gym. When I met Clint Crabtree he was at the very beginning of his diabetic diagnosis. It didn’t take me long to realize that in everything Clint does, status quo is not an option. In this part 1 of 2 part interview, we hear how Clint has not only overcome a near death experience but has actually found a way to use only a fraction of his insulin and has baffled his doctors on how he has stayed so healthy as a “brittle” insulin dependent diabetic. You’ll want to be sure to watch this episode.
I received an email today from a concerned rescuer who wondered how she could determine if a person is suffering from low blood sugar or high blood sugar and what to do for each. I thought it would be better if I simply video blogged my answer to her and to the rest of you who might benefit from it. It can be very scary to see someone with a decreased level of consciousness and not know why it’s happening. If one thinks that it may be due to low blood sugar, watching this video blog may empower you to know what to do and become a rescuer today.
