Type 1 Keto

Healthcare Professionals​

Welcome to the site that is written by Type 1 for Type 1. There are many contributions from clinicians who have Type1 diabetes themselves. There are also contributions from clinicians experienced in managing Type 1 patients, and importantly from people with Type 1 who have transitioned to a keto or very low carb lifestyle.

Many of the articles on the site are provided free. In addition, there is a Healthcare Professional Pack, available through subscription, which will provide you with all of the evidence and practical information necessary to support your patients who have chosen a very low carb lifestyle option. There is an accompanying webinar to give you the chance to ask questions. 

 If you or your team would like bespoke training, then please use the contact form to arrange an event.

Please consider subscribing to the webinars. They will provide a wealth of information relevant to clinical practice and will be hosted regularly. Also, please register to be the first to get updates on forthcoming educational events.
