    Hi I am new here. I am a mum of a T1 14yo boy. I recently went vegan and, after watching Cowspiracy my whole heavy meat eating family has moved towards plant based and my T1 son wants to go fully vegan.
    He was diagnosed 2012 and is pumping on the omnipod patch pump system.
    Any tips or advice would be good :)

  2. Hi @Lillbjorne and welcome to the forum :)

    I don't know about pumps and insulin but reckon it is just be a matter of balancing his carbs/fat/protein/insulin so would be no different from other ways of eating...except he will be dodging jelly babies now. Good luck!
