In today episode I interview Sally Marchini
www.marchininutrition.com Who is an active member of the Australian Diabetes Council and Coeliac Australia. She shares her personal experience Coeliac and type 1diabetic mixed in with her professional recommendations on how to mange type 1 diabetes.
Type 1 diabetes is a genetic condition that can only be treated with the use of insulin and taking care of carbohydrate intake. Sally helps to bust myths about low carb diets and warns that low carb diets can lead Type 1 diabetics into ketoacidosis resulting in death.
She also explains that exercise is good for overall health for everyone including Type 1 diabetics. The key though, is understanding your medications and your body to avoid blood sugar roller coasters.
Sally gives some awesome advice on how to get help for diabetic fatigue and provides some really useful links to websites where you can get help. Which include: http://www.diabetescounselling.com.au/
I also mentioned an exercise physiologist who’s into adventure sport. Allan Bolton's website www.ext1d.com.au as a type 1 exercise physiologist . I also do question and answer time with Katrina Mills from www.katrinamills.com
