Food ~ Worst Enemy & Best Friend

It seems food can be someone with type 1 diabetes best friend or worst enemy.  It can literally save the person's life or put them in the hospital.  For example, if someone with type 1 diabetes eats and forgets to take their insulin that person could be at risk for DKA.  It doesn't mean that will always happen, but it is a possibility.  If someone with type 1 diabetes has a low blood sugar (known as hypoglycemia) eating something can get them out of the danger zone and save their life.  At times, it is difficult to watch someone you love go through this but with good control people with type 1 diabetes can be very healthy.

  1. Hi,

    I was wondering if you accepted any guest posting on your site. I couldn’t manage to find your email on the site. If you could get a hold of me at, I would greatly appreciate it!
