After Thoughts: John Sjölund

Timesulin Banner & John

I had such a fun time talking with John!  As he says, he’s just a regular guy living with diabetes who wanted to solve a problem he was experiencing.  Enter Timesulin, a brilliantly simple solution that could literally be the difference between life and death.

Have you ever forgotten whether you’ve taken your shot?  It’s something that becomes such a habit for us, that it’s easier than you might think to forget if you’ve done it or not.  Now think about your options if you can’t remember…  Right!  None of them are good!  Timesulin replacement pen caps might be the thing that saves your butt.   You can read more about how it works here.

Besides talking about Timesulin, we covered a lot of other ground.  We talked about John’s awesome athletic achievements (and his dad’s), his experiences moving around the world with type 1 diabetes, and his experiences with the new Young Leaders Programme (I’m personally very excited about this).

It was a great show, and full of inspiration on many levels.  I hope you’ll share an hour of your time with us and check it out.
