About the Naked Diabetic

Welcome to “The Naked Diabetic“.

After 49 years of diabetes, I can tell you we all get frustrated and feel like no one understands what it is really like to live with diabetes…. and we are right. But we are perfectly normal. 

When you cut yourself a little slack, don’t expect everything to be perfect, managing your diabetes gets a little easier. 

Never be afraid to try new things!

The purpose of The Naked Diabetic blog is to strip away the fear that comes with a diabetes diagnosis. I share my experiences and tips for daily living. to help others and give support and understanding. I share diabetic-friendly recipes that are all geared to low-carb diabetic-friendly eating.

All of my recipes are diabetic-friendly and designed to give other diabetics options to try new recipes made just for them. Finding Desserts is one of the hardest things to manage when you are living with diabetes. We are regularly adding options to our list of yummy Diabetic-Friendly desserts.

We share all of our recipes on Pinterest, as well. save your favourites and always have great diabetic-friendly choices at your fingertips.

I was diagnosed as a Type 1 diabetic when I was 7 years old. It was devastating for my parents. Diabetes wasn’t really “a thing” back then and there was a steep learning curve.

There were no at-home testing kits, no insulin pumps, no AIC tests, no carbohydrate counting, and not much in terms of clinical care. We have come a long way baby!

After almost 50 years with diabetes, and going through many stages of life, I decided to start my Blog, ” The Naked diabetic ” Growing up with diabetes, having a full-time career, being married and having children, and now entering my retirement years, have come with its own challenges, when it comes to managing my diabetes. But.. over the years I have learned that you can accomplish anything as long as you have the right mindset and support.

We hear a lot of negatives about diabetes, but it is not a death sentence. There is no reason you can’t live a long, normal, and healthy life. It’s really not that hard. it only requires the right attitude, the right support, and commitment.

I am looking forward to what the future holds.
