Cooking, eating and diabetes

December 12th, 2019. When I was asked to write a blog about type 1 diabetes, cooking, and eating during the festive season, I didn't need to give it a second thought. I live and breathe cooking, food, and diabetes. l also enjoy all the good things in life and love being in the kitchen every day.

World Diabetes Day special: What Kaleido means to me

World Diabetes Day special: What Kaleido means to me

November 13th, 2019. You're nine years old, and the paediatrician tells you that you’ll spend the rest of your life dealing with a nasty, unfair disease called ‘Type 1 diabetes mellitus’.

Diabetes and parenting

Diabetes and parenting

June 1st, 2019. There is so much about being a parent that aren't revealed until you are in the throws of it. You know the sort of thing — as soon as you announce you are pregnant, the truth starts to tumble out from those already on the parenting side of the fence. And so the guilt starts. ALL the guilt! First there are the pregnancy horror stories — the tales of...
