Welcome to Sea Peptide Salties

a home for people with diabetes who are doing amazingly adventurous things.

I am Erin Spineto. I write, train, and adventure, all while taking care of a chronic condition called type 1 diabetes. In 2011, I sailed solo 100 miles down the Florida Keys after doctors told me I couldn't sail alone with diabetes. In the years that followed,I led the first ever all type 1 diabetic team to complete the 12.5-mile Swim Around Key West, a 100-mile Stand Up Paddle trip up the Intracoastal Waterway, and a 120-mile paddle, swim, hike and bike around Turks and Caicos.

Recently, I have moved on to my next creative project, producing an original comedy movie, A Bad Case, under the Sea Peptide Productions banner.  

 
"Erin Spineto should be proud as hell for being it, living it, and writing it."
--Kerri Sparling, creator and author of Six Until Me, one of the first and most widely-read diabetes patient blogs

"Every person with diabetes can be happy when they have others to commiserate with, to plan with, and to adventure with."

--Erin Spineto 
 

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT

ISLANDS AND INSULIN...

Islands and Insulin is probably the most entertaining diabetes book I’ve read to date..." 

--Amy Tenderich, Founder and Editor of Diabetes Mine

 

Your big adventure may not be the same as my big adventure- but whatever your BIG is, you can find a way to make it safe even with diabetes.
