Lauren Bongiorno

The Diabetes Health Coach Creating a Community

Diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at just seven years old, Lauren Bongiorno has successfully launched a diabetic health and nutrition counseling company to help other women suffering from the same illness. With an Instagram community of 26,000,000, Bongiorno regularly posts tips and tricks for her followers, along with recipes and workouts. Most recently, Bongiorno authored The Diabetic Health Journal to enable people diagnosed with type 1 diabetes to improve their day-to-day control over their symptoms and routines.

“What I really hope to see is for people to start becoming their own teachers, and their own coaches, and saying, ‘Let me see how I can make something that’s really fit to me.’”
—Lauren Bongiorno
