Can a Plant-Based Diet Reduce Your Need for Insulin in Type 1 Diabetes?

 Join a free 12-week research study to test whether a low-fat, plant-based diet can reduce insulin requirements in individuals with type 1 diabetes! 

Qualified participants will receive weekly group sessions with physicians, dietitians, and cooking instructors. You will get nutrition education, practical tips, meal planning, and cooking demonstrations to help transition to a low-fat, plant-based diet. Participants will also schedule a one-on-one consultation with a dietitian and lab tests to check body composition and certain health measures.

If you have type 1 diabetes, live in the Washington, D.C. area, and are not currently following a low-fat, plant-based diet, please fill out the interest survey below and one of our research specialists will contact you!

Recruitment for this study will begin in July 2021.
