"I needed to take my own advice" - Catching up with advocate Chris Ruden

Diabetes Connections | Type 1 Diabetes

We are far away from New Year’s resolutions and it’s feeling a little wintry and dreary around here. Good time to get some motivation and check in with Chris Ruden. Many of you know likely - from his appearance on the Titan games, his bodybuilding videos or maybe it’s the videos where he shows his prosthetic hand.

This week, Mila Clark became a popular advocate for type 2 diabetes after her diagnosis in 2016 But she was actually one of the many adults misdiagnosed – she actually lives with LADA. One of the biggest changes she experienced was how her health care providers treated her, they were much more supportive when they realized she had LADA – also called type 1.5.

Mila is working to reduce the stigma around all types of diabetes. We talk about her advocacy, her Hangry Woman business, the unique patch pump she’s using and a lot more.
