John, based in Birmingham, England, is a respected diabetes dietitian and a type 1 diabetes patient. Dedicated to equipping diabetic children with tools for self-management, John expertly integrates innovative technologies such as Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) and Artificial Insulin Delivery (AID). His emphasis on a balanced lifestyle encompasses regular meals, daily physical activity, and post-meal activeness.
Central to John’s methodology is his uniquely structured education. His creation, the “CGM Academy”, exemplifies his prowess by teaching Dynamic Glucose Management. Notably, John co-authored the ISPAD 2022 Exercise Guidelines, marking a notable addition to diabetes care.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, John co-developed an award-winning virtual diabetes curriculum for schools. He also introduced practical tools, including a unique pathway for high HbA1c patients and the KISS system for high-fat meals.
