-HI! I’M CIARA-

I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in 2002. Since then I’ve graduated from university and developed a passion for nutrition. I want to combine that passion with my lifestyle as a diabetic, because until there’s a cure, diabetes isn’t going anywhere so why not make the most of it?! I like to chase optimism so I love to laugh and find the positive lights in life. Explore the site to learn more about diabetes as well as some more fun facts about me!
