Hi, I'm Michelle from Cincinnati, Ohio. I'm a Spanish major graduating in 2010. Nutrition, health, and science have always interested me. I like traveling, reading and listening to music.
On May 16, 2008 I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at age 20. I had all the classic symptoms of thirst and weight loss, tested positive for all the autoantibodies and had an AlC of 14%.
On January 8, 2009 I eliminated grain, dairy, and legumes from my diet and the results have been remarkable. Only after a few weeks my insulin needs dropped dramatically and after six months on the diet I quit taking insulin altogether.
I am writing this blog because I want other type 1 diabetics to know about the benefits of the diet. It's helped me and I believe it could help others. I will be posting about my progress on the diet, lab results (such as AlC's, autoantibodies, C-peptide), research studies and articles about type 1 diabetes, and recipes.
