A series of experiments I did to test what happens to blood sugar when you go walking for several hours. To make it more fun I did these walks through the streets of Osaka, Japan, following the subway lines that rumble underneath the road surface. Beginning with the shortest line and moving up in difficulty, I checked in at every station along each route and took note of my frequent blood sugar checks. Plus I saw a lot of obscure little neighborhoods in Osaka that very few people ever visit. Watch the short videos about my walks, see how my blood sugar behaved, and get inspired yourself to test the limits of diabetes and also to find beauty in even apparently mundane spots.

The world is worth exploring, and Type 1 diabetes doesn't have to stop anyone from enjoying the rich experiences of travel. On 70-130 you'll find fun but honest travelogues and photos from my journeys around the world with T1D and get tips for safely hitting the road, with diabetes supplies and without fear.
Traveling with diabetes is rarely easy but it's always worth it. 70-130 (named for my elusive target blood sugar range) exists to inspire others to break through whatever they feel is holding them back.
Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to connect with me on social media too. I want to hear about your own diabetes experiences! —Jeremy
