Management & Diet

with RD Dikeman | Roxanne Dikeman | Dave Dikeman

Normalize your blood sugar levels. Reduce your risk for complications.

Do your blood sugars fluctuate
wildly throughout the day?

It doesn’t have to be this way!

If you’ve been following the standard advice for type 1 diabetes and your blood sugar is still all over the place then this course, Type 1 Diabetes Management & Diet, with the Dikeman family, is exactly what you’ve been looking for.

The Dikemans are experienced authorities on using low-carbohydrate nutrition to achieve truly normal blood sugar and hemoglobin A1c, following the pioneering method from renowned researcher Dr. Richard Bernstein, MD. These are the same methods detailed in the landmark paper, “Management of Type 1 Diabetes With a Very Low-Carbohydrate Diet,” which showed unprecedented glycemic control for type 1 diabetics who followed a very low-carb diet. (Dr. Dikeman was a co-author along with Dr. Bernstein and Adapt Your Life Academy co-founder, Eric Westman, MD. It was the most popular article of 2018 in the journal Pediatrics.)

These lessons are the heart of the course. The Dikemans explain why the standard treatment approach using a high-carbohydrate diet and high doses of insulin leaves people with type 1 diabetes on a dangerous rollercoaster of high and low blood sugars and teaches you how to implement a low-carb diet to achieve blood sugar levels that are not only impressive for someone with type 1 diabetes – but that are truly healthy and normal. You can watch the videos as many times as you wish during the course, and you will have access to your student portal after the end of the course so that you can continue to log in and replay them anytime you’d like a refresher.

An invaluable opportunity to interact in real-time with a family who are living the keto lifestyle and thriving, while helping their son and brother Dave maintain normal blood sugars while enjoying the full range of life experiences: holidays, school, travel, special events, athletic pursuits, and more. They’ll be reviewing the basic concepts but these live sessions are YOUR time to ask questions and get actionable advice from people who have successfully followed a keto diet and managed type 1 diabetes for nearly a decade.

Hear directly from an active, busy family on how they navigate the physical and psychological aspects of eating this way on a daily basis in the real world.

A simple yet comprehensive guide to exactly what to eat and what to avoid in order to facilitate achieving normal blood sugars and minimizing risk for dangerous highs and lows. No more wondering what to eat! Coupled with the examples in the video lessons, you will have a world of delicious options for meals and snacks.

Meet Your Teachers

Through working closely with Dr. Bernstein and as a founder of the Type One Grit online community, R.D. has helped provide thousands of other individuals and families living with type 1 diabetes with information to reduce the threat of complications and attain the truly normal blood sugars that all type 1 diabetics deserve.
