So, who is the The Healthy Diabetic?
The Healthy Diabetic is me, Charlie Allred, I’ve been diabetic for the past 15 years, so all my tips & tricks have been learned from trial and error. I believe in living a low carb life. I cook low carb meals for my whole family!! I know, it sounds crazy, but my husband & I eat low carb and then we offer the kids a healthy carb with their meals.
My father is a type 1 diabetic, so I’ve seen many of the complications including the hardened arteries (he had a quadruple bypass surgery about 12 years ago), he regularly gets his eyes layered because his retinas are bleeding and he has high blood pressure.
