Are you a newly diagnosed Type 1 Diabetic? Are you the mom or caregiver of a newly diagnosed Type 1 diabetic child? Are you starting over with your T1D management? Then you are in the right place! This is episode SIX in a 10 week series for the newly diagnosed.

The sixth episode in the Newly Diagnosed Series is all about counting carbs. Rachel and I discuss how to do it and other things on the nutrition label to take into consideration such as fiber, fat and protein. Plus, we spend a little time talking more about pancreatic function. What else do the Beta Cells do? What are alpha cells and what role do they play? It's a good one, you guys! 

Joining me again and for the entire 10 week series is Registered Nurse and Certified Diabetes Care and Education Specialist (CDCES), Rachel Halverson. Rachel is also a T1D herself and has been living with Type 1 for 23 years now.  What's more, she has her very own online coaching business called Give Me Some Sugar where she primarily helps women manage their diabetes. In other words, she a super-human, hard-working lady! Please see below so you can know where to find Rachel and get in contact with her if you'd like!

A diagnosis of Type 1 Diabetes is overwhelming to say the very least. The beginning of the journey with T1D is hard, emotional, scary and HEAVY. That's why I wanted to complete this series to help encourage and equip those families who are now facing this new life with T1D. Enjoy!
