Mr. John Pemberton


John works at the Birmingham Women's Children's Hospital as a Diabetes Specialist Dietitian, helping look after 300 children with Type 1 Diabetes, and 25 Children with Type 2 Diabetes. The bulk of his work involves empowering and educating Children and Young People and their families to self-manage diabetes. His current interests include the effective use of new technology (APS, CGM, pumps), re-establishing foundational principles (three balanced meals, regular activity and insulin timings) and how expectations drive change. He created the "CGM Academy" that teaches Dynamic Glucose Management in 2020, implemented a novel high HbA1c pathway in 2019, co-authored the ACDC CGM guidance in 2018, and implemented the KISS system for giving extra insulin for high fat and protein meals in 2017. His niche lies in developing easy to use interactive PDF tools that put the theory into practice. His most important jobs are being a top dad to Grace and Jude and trying to be a half decent husband to Dani.
