Hi! My name is Lissie Poyner. Type one diabetic, Integrative Health Coach and founder of Needles and Spoons Health & Wellness. At the age of 19 my life changed forever when I was diagnosed with T1D and to be frank, I was exhausted with how much my care was sugarcoated (excuse the pun).
So here we are. Let’s get this thing started! Welcome to Keeping it 100 Radio. This podcast was created in collaboration with Skin Grip (my favorite patch company) to give you the real & raw conversations around type one diabetes. We know there’s a lot left uncovered in our doctor’s office and we’re here to fill that gap. In this podcast you’ll hear personal experiences from me, strategies from all of the experts I know, and everything you need to help you create an empowered life with diabetes.

Certified Health Coach, Personal Trainer & Founder of Needles and Spoons
Integrative Diabetes Health Coach, Certified Personal Trainer, owner of Needles and Spoons Health & Wellness, and creator Keeping It 100. I help overwhelmed people with Type One Diabetes just like you gain more predictability in their blood sugars so they can finally take their life plans off hold.
I was diagnosed with T1D at the age of 19, and to say that I was lost would be an understatement. In the years that followed my diagnosis, through trial, (a lot of) error, and education, I took my own A1C from a 7.1 to a consistent 5.7 and learned what it really takes to achieve predictability in my blood sugars. I also brought my Ulcerative Colitis into remission!
