Welcome!

Hello to all my fellow diabetic and nondiabetic inhabitants of this earth. My name is Abby, I’m a 24-year-old Vancouver native currently living in Toronto, Canada. I’m a musician, health enthusiast and lover of all things chocolate.

 

This website is a personal projection for my constant thirst for learning new and better ways to live as a type 1 diabetic. Being chronically ill has the potential to be chronically shitty, but it doesn’t have to be. Over the past 7 years of having diabetes, I’ve learned a lot about how to harmoniously coexist (for the most part) with the beast it can sometimes prove to be. I know that my blood sugar will never be perfect all the time, but knowing that I have the ability to keep it within my comfortable range, and still live a fulfilling, non-restrictive life, is empowering to me. The reason I care so much about maintaining the best blood sugar I can is because my ultimate goal is to be super old and wrinkly and not have any complications. Check out “my journey” to read more about the different diets and experiments I’ve tried that have lead me to where I am today.

In light of this dessert experience, it prompted me to come up with my own recipe that tasted the same but didn't have a negative effect on my blood suga...

1. PRE-BOLUS!!!! A  lot of you reading this probably do this already but I can’t stress how much it helps!!  Pre blousing means putting in your fast acting (meal time) insulin before you plan on eating your food. It can range from 5 to 30 minutes before, depending on what you’re eating and how your body reacts to insulin.

Learning how much time it takes for certain foods to start affecting your blood sugar can be a game changer when it comes to diabetes management. Pre-bolusing can help eliminate those annoying high carb food spikes and stabilize your mood as well as your sugar. If you...
