My blog documents my life and often highlights the food I eat and the lifestyle I follow. I do not have any medical training, nor am I a registered dietitian. While I am a Certified Health Coach, the content you see on T1D Living simply aims to bring you along on the journey of my life. What I do may not be right for you and should not be viewed as a guideline in any way, but a starting point for a conversation between you and your medical provider. I am not a doctor, lawyer, psychiatrist, therapist, or your mother, and I don’t play one on the internet.

I encourage you to consult a doctor before making any health changes, especially any changes related to a specific diagnosis or condition. No information on this site should be relied upon to determine diet, make a medical diagnosis, or determine treatment for a medical condition. The information on this website is not intended to replace a one-on-one relationship with a qualified health care professional and is not intended as medical advice.

NO information on this site should be used to diagnose, treat, prevent or cure any disease or condition.

By reading this website, you acknowledge that you are responsible for your own health decisions. Do not take anything from any website, including this one, and try it without proper research and medical supervision.

In compliance with the FTC guidelines, I want to inform you of the following:

Affilate Links

The FTC also requires disclosure about any affiliate links. I will occasionally post affiliate links on T1D Living, linking to some of my favorite products. I am always upfront and transparent with my use of affiliate links. Any affiliate links you see do not inflate the cost for you – the price stays the same. If I post an affiliate link to a product, it is something that I personally use, have used in the past, support, and would recommend without an affiliate link. These opinions are always my own and I would never recommend or endorse a product that I do not believe in.  I do earn a very small commission based on any purchased made through an affiliate link and appreciate your support.

This means when you order a himalayan salt lamp from a link on T1D Living I’ll earn a small commission (as much as a whopping $0.72). These small commissions eventually add up to help me do things like pay for hosting. For this reason, I’m very grateful when you use my links because it helps me keep T1D Living up and running.

Amazon Disclosure

I participate in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to (Want to know what I buy with my amazon fees each month? Test strips. Lots and lots of test strips. So, thank you for purchasing through my link!)

Product Reviews

I will occasionally review products on T1D Living. If I receive compensation for the review, I will always disclose it in the post. If the product was sent to me for free to review, I will always be forthcoming and say that the company sent me the product to try upon first mention.

My opinions about the products I review are 100 percent honest and I do not accept payment to give a product a positive review. The companies I work with understand that my reviews will contain my true feelings.
