I’ve got an invested interest in living a low-carb life. At the age of 13, I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes (T1DM), otherwise known as Juvenile Diabetes. This has been a disease that has been something that has played a large role in my life, as can be expected. I went to highschool with it, college, got married, and had kids with it. But while it may have been my ever present companion for over 20 years, I try my best not to let it define me.
