My name is Ariel Warren, RDN, CD, CDCES. I am a Certified Diabetes Care and Education Specialist, a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, a Certified Pump Trainer, an author, a speaker, and what I’m most proud of is that I have had type 1 diabetes for over 25 years. I believe that nutrition and diabetes management should be individualized. Having the right team, tech, and knowledge, frees you to live your best self with diabetes.
I was diagnosed with Type 1 when I was 4 years old. In an odd way, I am grateful for my diabetes because it has given me a deep level of empathy, and has led me to a career as a health provider. Diabetes has connected me to many empowering and inspiring individuals (such as yourself).
Currently, I hold a B.S. in Nutrition and Dietetics, I am the board chair-elect for the American Association of Diabetes Educator (AADE), and I am a speaker on “Becoming our Best Self with Diabetes through Tech and Nutrition”. I work as a diabetes educator and dietitian at an Endocrinology Outpatient Clinic in Utah and through my own online virtual practice.
