Hello and welcome to the Diabetes Diet blog…
Thanks for visiting our website and we hope you find something useful here. Just to introduce ourselves, we are two Scottish ladies who are very interested in diabetes and achieving good health despite diabetes – on a personal and professional level.
I am Emma Baird. I’m a type 1 diabetic (diagnosed 32 years ago…) and a writer with a keen interest in health…
… And I am Dr Katharine Morrison, a senior practising GP and a senior partner in a medical practice in Ayrshire. My son was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes 10 years ago, and since then I have worked extensively with diabetics (both type 1 and type 2) to help them to achieve good blood sugar control – a vital component in good health and longevity.
We wrote a book about diabetes and good blood sugar control and we set up this website to complement the book. We’re going to update with it lots of topical articles, recipes and guest posts from others interested in diabetes, and those who work in healthcare with diabetics.
We’ve also added two very useful sections – the D-Solve course and the ‘how to’ course. Start with the D-Solve course and then try the How to course. Written by Dr Morrison, both courses contain a huge amount of useful information for you and they will really help if you have diabetes, or know someone who does.
And if you have experience in diabetes, low-carb dieting and recipes, and exercising with diabetes, we would love to hear from you. Use the comments sections to keep in touch, or email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
