VRG: Type 1 Diabetes

Just got around to reading this 2012 article from the Vegetarian Resource Group about a vegan with type 1 diabetes. It includes a link to a meal plan for vegetarians with type 1 diabetes:

    It’s a shame that the meal plan is exchange-based. That system is really out-of-date.

    The American Diabetes Association actually has information on their website about vegetarian and vegan diets, and it’s pretty good information. http://www.diabetes.org/food-and-fitness/food/planning-meals/meal-planning-for-vegetarians/?loc=key-nutrients

    I went vegan with type 1 diabetes in 2006, and there wasn’t any info out there. I’ve since met a small handful of other vegan type 1s, and information is a little easier to find these days.
