Type 1 Ninjas are all people living with Type 1 diabetes. They have a combined experience of over 100 years of type 1 diabetes management and twenty years combined experience of ketogenic lifestyles. They are experts in the management of Type 1 diabetes with a keto diet and have come together to tell you about what they do. By getting expert information from people who live with diabetes every day, we hope that you will avoid all of the experimentation and searching for information that we had to do.
We do this because we passionately believe that others are missing out on information about the most effective and evidence-based scientific solution to Type 1 diabetes management. This half-day meeting will cover the medical aspects of converting to keto, diet, physical activity and supporting your mental health. We will talk about our own journeys, what we found challenging and how to avoid common pitfalls.
Type 1 Ninjas will host a half-day seminar which will give you all of the information you need to make an informed choice about this option for your Type 1 diabetes. Whether you are someone living with Type 1, living with or caring for someone with Type 1, or working as a healthcare professional, this meeting is intended for you. The ideal type 1 management is a sharing of ideas and a collaboration between the person living with it 24/7 and their healthcare professional.
We have discovered the hard way how to normalise blood glucose using a ketogenic lifestyle. Before this, they struggled to achieve the near-impossible task of getting normal and smooth glucose traces. This was because the art of injecting insulin at the exact right moment to balance the carbohydrates and protein in meals is very difficult. The fact is that blood glucose levels are determined by more than the carbs in the diet and insulin.
A keto lifestyle is not difficult to learn and the principles of insulin management are the same as any diet. The evidence is that keto diets not only normalise blood glucose but reduce the number of hypos up to sixfold and bring the HbA1c into the normal non-diabetic range in the majority of cases. In addition, most people halve their insulin daily doses, which will lead to better health outcomes in the future.
All of the Ninjas will be at this meeting.
