Ginger has lived with type 1 diabetes and Celiac disease since 1999. We discovered Ginger's love for One Drop through her awesome review in Diabetes Daily and her frequent shoutouts on Twitter (@GingerVieira)!
On top of being an incredible diabetes advocate and very vocal member of the DOC, Ginger has authored five diabetes guidebooks, all available on Amazon.
Ginger's most recent book is Pregnancy with Type 1 Diabetes: Your Month-to-Month Guide to Blood Sugar Management, and we highly recommend it to anyone thinking about pregnancy or currently pregnant with diabetes. Ginger provides her tried and true tips for a successful pregnancy with T1D, and she's got proof that her strategies work: two adorable kiddos of her own!
What else makes Ginger a diabadass?
I'm glad you asked. As if all the above weren't impressive enough: Ginger is an award-winning competitive powerlifter! In 2009 & 2010, Ginger set 15 records in drug-tested powerlifting with a 308 lb. deadlift, a 265 lb. squat, and a 190 lb. bench press
