I started Let Me Be 83 because, in my heart, I believe that every family should be given a choice at diagnosis as to how they want to manage this disease. They can either follow the ADA guidelines and count carbohydrates and dose insulin, OR they can learn about using low carb nutrition and different insulins to achieve normal blood sugars. Had I been presented with both options when River was first diagnosed, I would’ve chosen right then and there to do a complete overhaul of our diet and manage his diabetes the way we do now. My mission through the foundation is to provide educational materials for newly diagnosed families so that they hear about low carb nutrition right away.
