Podcast: Vickie de Beer Shares How She Realised Her Son Has Type 1 Diabetes and the Lifestyle Changes that Ensued
Vickie de Beer joined OFM presenter Isabel Potgieter on her Mommy Matters show to talk about the personal journey that inspired The Low-Carb Solution For Diabetics which, earlier this year, won the title 2015 Sunday Times Food Weekly Cookbook of the year.
De Beer shares how they figured out their young son had diabetes, revealing the symptoms he showed, and the adjustments their family had to make to help him live with the disease. Most importantly, she shares how they had to realise and accept that type 1 diabetes is a lifelong disease which would be with her son, Luca, and their family for the rest of their lives. Making peace with this helped them transition into a healthy, sustainable lifestyle which she captured in her book.
De Beer wrote this award-winning book with South Africa’s leading paediatrician, Kath Megaw.
