Who am I?

— I am Alexander Claeys and I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at the age of 18. Living with diabetes comes with its own challenges and obstacles. You might be doubting yourself, wondering whether you can live with diabetes. These concerns are all understandable, but you can‘t let them stop you from achieving your goals. I refused to let diabetes withhold my dreams and passions, one of them: bodybuilding. In those years as a diabetic I learned to deal with my diabetes and immersed myself in nutrition and training techniques.

My favourite quote is „Don‘t let obstacles keep you from trying“ and that is exactly what I am doing. I love helping people with diabetes and actively promote a healthy lifestyle. I started Diabetesbody as the purpose to motivate others and help you achieve your goals. Together we can accomplish anything!
