Shining light on Type 1 Diabetes and Celiac in She Sugar


One of the greatest tools for living well with type 1 diabetes is someone who  encourages with positivity and first-hand experience.  Jewels Doskicz is the exceptionally qualified author of She Sugar, a positive and practical educational link for families living with type 1 diabetes and Celiac Disease.

Jewels shares her experiences in diabetes education, living with diabetes personally, mothering a child with type 1 diabetes/Celiac Disease, and working for 16 years as a nurse in her writings on She Sugar. She also has a BA in psychology.

The Internet has given us the unprecedented opportunity to learn from people, like us, that we never realized existed. Jewels was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at age 13. One of Jewel’s daughters, Emma, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes and Celiac Disease five years ago. Jewels and her experiences throughout the years of childhood, teens, college years, pregnancy and almost 30 years living healthfully with type 1 diabetes has evoked the existence of She Sugar.

The content of She Sugar does not arbitrarily tie type 1 diabetes to the prevalence of Celiac Disease. Most of us diagnosed 10+ years ago were never tested for it, now it is always completed at diagnosis. Today, 1:10 people with type 1 also have celiac disease. Do you?

Everything you will see on She Sugar is captivating. Whether you are watering at the mouth at the gluten-free lunchbox, amazed at the association between hypoglycemia and dreams, or intrigued at a tech savvy approach to diabetes management  РJewels will motivate, humanizes, and empower your life.

There is no rite of passage when someone is diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. Unfairly, it’s a baptism of fire. Jewels acknowledges the need that families have when dealing with this lightning strike. As such, she is a Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation trained mentor for newly diagnosed families, as well as a volunteer for the JDRF Online Diabetes Support Team.

Diabetes is unrelenting, as is the efforts of Jewels. Amplify your attitude and make your approach to diabetes two times sweeter. Checkout She Sugar.
