The mission of this website is to provide a positive and practical educational connection for families living with type 1 diabetes and celiac disease.
With my extensive experience in diabetes education, living with diabetes personally, mothering a child with type 1 diabetes/celiac disease, and working for 18 years as a nurse, I see how my experience has and will continue to benefit others. My experience spans the years of childhood, teens, college years, pregnancy and almost 30 years living healthfully with Type 1 diabetes into adulthood. I have a BA in Psychology and I’m also a registered nurse. Through She Sugar and other diabetes/ celiac websites we have a community of understanding Type 1 diabetes and celiac disease in children and adults. We can all lead healthy and happy lives with these autoimmune diseases and do it together, you are not alone.
