My name is Scott Strange and I have been a Type 1 diabetic since 1970.  Strangely Diabetic is my story of how diabetes has affected my life and how my life changed when I learned that I wasn’t alone in this chronic condition.  I want to share my experiences with other diabetics, so they can hopefully avoid some of the things that made me truly suffer.  Diabetes was probably the least of those things.

I advocate for patients to become actively engaged, not only in managing their condition; but in stepping forward to lead their health-care team and to communicate with other diabetics either online or in person.

It took me nearly 40 years to realize that I was not alone in living with diabetes.  At the time, I didn’t even know that I needed the support of other diabetics who truly understand; but I finally found the support I needed and it has changed my life.

Blogging and participating in the Diabetic Online Community is my way to give a little back to all those who have helped me.

I am especially interested in combating the stigma surrounding diabetes and mental illness. Stigmas that make it so much harder to get the care needed.

I am available for social media consulting, writing, and speaking engagements.  Please contact me using the form below.
