Behind the scenes at 70-130.com

Jeremy in front of Czech sign with arrows Welcome to 70-130! I'm Jeremy, a world traveler from the US who's had Type 1 diabetes since 1982. It's not always easy but I love exploring this big friendly planet, insulin and test strips by my side. And if I can do it, so can you.

Follow my detailed and honest travelogues, read my expert tips for T1D care around the world, and feel inspired to dream up your own adventures right here. Blood sugar may not always be between 70 and 130 mg/dL — but the journey is always worth it!
