About: Ginger Vieira
Ginger diagnosed herself with type 1 diabetes during the 7th-grade health fair when she was 13 years old — and nobody believed her for a week! She also lives with Celiac disease, fibromyalgia, and hypothyroidism. Needless to say, her immune system has made some very questionable choices over the years, but she has spent her entire adult life creating content that helps people juggle the daily challenges of type 1 and type 2 diabetes. She’s authored a variety of books, including “When I Go Low” (for kids), “Pregnancy with Type 1 Diabetes,” and “Dealing with Diabetes Burnout.” Ginger’s also written for Diabetes Mine, Healthline, T1D Exchange, Diabetes Strong and more! In her free time, she is jumping rope, scootering with her daughters, or walking with her handsome fella and her amazing dog, Petey.
