About Kristi Jacques.

I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes when I was 12 years old. Thank goodness my mother knew enough to see the warning signs. The doctor simply told me that I just needed to eat healthy and that “everyone should be eating the diabetic diet”. Of course he did not explain what that meant. I don’t even think he knew.
Over the years, I believe I have made just about every mistake in the book when it comes to managing blood sugar, and maybe added a few. But thankfully, I found a way off of that roller coaster ride of highs

and lows and feel so much better!My A1C numbers are now normal for a non-diabetic, I am taking less than half of the insulin I was before and my overall health has definitely improved! I want to help you learn from my mistakes, and my successes, so you can live your best and healthiest life!
