Who am I?
When diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in my mid-thirties, I was determined to keep my blood glucose levels as close to normal as possible. I wanted to avoid the complications of high blood sugar levels - nerve damage, kidney problems, poor circulation, deteriorating vision and hearing, infections that won't heal, cognitive decline.....and the list goes on. I also wanted to avoid hypoglycemic episodes where blood glucose dips down dangerously low.
I was very lucky to have the background I do at that time - a Bachelor's in biochemistry and a Post-Graduate degree in Human Nutrition. Never had I met a diabetic who maintained near-normal blood glucose levels so I knew the orthodox treatment wasn't for me.
The reason diabetics have a hard time stablising blood glucose levels is because they are unable to process carbohydrates - they don't have the insulin and/or the insulin sensitivity to move glucose (from dietary sugar and other carbohydrates) out of their bloodstream and into the cells of the body.
I turned instead to limiting the carbohydrates in my diet and increasing other nutrient-dense foods. By doing this I was able to reduce the amount of insulin I needed to take - the fewer carbohydrates in the diet, the less insulin needed by the body to move glucose into the cell; thereby, stablising blood sugar levels.
When limiting carbohydrates in the diet, particularly refined carbohydrates like table sugar, white flours and packaged foods, the cells become more sensitive to the glucose in your bloodstream, decreasing insulin resistance; therefore, this strategy works for Type 1 Diabetics, Type 2 Diabetics, those with Insulin Resistance and LADA (Latent Auto-immune Disease of the Adult), Metabolic Syndrome, Fatty Liver Disease and Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS).
Once I started managing my diabetes this way my blood glucose levels came back into the normal range, my HbA1c dropped to 5.0 - 5.4, my insulin requirements decreased, my weight stabilised, and I had more energy and felt great.
If you, too, want to manage your diabetes through food, reduce medications and feel great, REVIVE is for you.
"Earlier this year, my GP diagnosed that I had Type 2 diabetes. I was scared and confused – what did this mean for my life? Nikki provided me terrific support and advice about diet and lifestyle which answered many of my concerns, provided me hope and gave me a plan to tackle diabetes. Over the last 3 months, I have got my blood glucose levels under control and lost 8 kgs – and managed to do this whilst still enjoying dark chocolate and single malt whisky!!!
Nikki is fantastic. She brings together the science of biochemistry and nutrition with an understanding of people; providing practical, evidence-based advice tailored to the individual. I unreservedly recommend Nikki to anyone who wants to improve their health, well-being and quality of life."
