"I don’t believe in restricting food or limiting ourselves. I believe in having everything in moderation and using science and experience to help us fit what brings joy into our lives."
Numbers do not define you. We use numbers like weight or A1c to tell us where you are now and help us determine what areas to focus on to guide you to where you want to be. There is no perfect weight just as there is no perfect A1c. It’s about discovering where you feel good and keeping up the habits that help to get you there.
Meet the Founder
Ariela Nielson developed a passion for helping people with diabetes live healthier, happier lives following her own diagnosis of type 1 diabetes at the age of 10. Following a diabetes management plan as best she could, she was often told that her A1c was too high and that she needed to take more insulin, but no one seemed too concerned that she was having blood sugars in the 50s and 60s every day before lunch.
It took meeting with a diabetes educator who also had type 1 diabetes for her to finally feel heard and to finally be able to understand what she had the power to change to get better blood sugar results and feel better.
She sought out more information and ended up taking a nutrition class following a diagnosis of celiac disease. Today, she uses her education, experience and experiences of the people she has met and worked with to help guide others to find a better way of living with such a complex condition.
Ariela is a licensed and registered dietitian and certified diabetes care and education specialist.
