Type 1 Diabetes
As a person living with diabetes, you have to think about food way more than the average person. It's no wonder that people with T1D are almost 2.5 times more likely to struggle with an eating disorder than those without diabetes. Some people might think that their diagnosis of T1D keeps them from being able to find freedom with food, but that is far from the truth. It might take some more effort and a lot more numbers (BG numbers, mostly), but gosh darn it, you too can find food freedom.
I understand the daily demands of living with T1D from the years I spent working in a pediatric endocrine clinic. As a weight-neutral, non-diet Registered Dietitian and Certified Diabetes Educator, I'll help you manage your diabetes with confidence without focusing on the scale or cutting out foods or food groups.
I'm well-versed in diabetes technology, including continuous glucose monitors and insulin pumps, if you're interested in that sort of thing, or we can just stick to the food stuff. It all depends on your individual needs and health goals.
