Dr Ian Lake

‘Welcome to the site. Despite all the technology available, clinicians managing Type 1 Diabetes  are getting fewer than 10% of their patients to even a modest HbA1c target in the UK.  It is exciting that new research is showing that options such as a keto lifestyle can achieve 90% success. We urgently need to rethink Type 1 Diabetes’ and provide the information on ketogenic lifestyles so that our Type 1 Diabetes population can have a choice of options for their diabetes management This website sets out to do this in a way that is informative and practical for both people with Type 1 Diabetes and their healthcare professionals. ‘.
