Amy Rush is an Accredited Practicing Dietitian and Credentialled Diabetes Educator working solely with people living with type 1 diabetes. Amy’s passion to help improve the lives of people with type 1 is inspired by her brother, who was diagnosed at a young age. Amy practices privately as both a diabetes educator and dietitian at the Telethon Type 1 Diabetes Family Centre in Perth, where she also develops and manages the group diabetes education programs. Amy is passionate about the role of nutrition in managing type 1 diabetes. Amy is a self-confessed ‘tech nerd’ and loves interpreting CGM and flash monitor graphs or constructing profiles from pump and meter readings. In clinic she is known as the ‘Diabetes Detective’ for her knack at deciphering food and insulin interactions and using these to a patient’s advantage. Amy has also worked as a personal trainer, she is married to a professional athlete, and she encourages people with type 1 to achieve their sporting goals. She believes type 1 should not hold anyone back in any way, and supports her patients to dream big.
