Our Story

Confectioner image

We are Walid and Myriam, co-founders of Akinj and caregivers for relatives living with diabetes.

As relatives of type 1 diabetics, we know how hard it is to get that sugar up when needed. For the past 15 years, we’ve experienced with them lows at night, at the beach, at the movies, at the airport, while driving, shopping, scary ones, funny ones and much more... We’ve seen our loved ones struggle when having a low from eating things they dislike to over treating, or simply being tired of eating when they didn’t feel like doing so. When we think of how much time is needed to treat a low, we can say that being diabetic is tiring and time-consuming.

With the aim of facilitating the treatment of hypoglycemia for our relatives and to improve their quality of life, we decided to create Akinj and develop its very first product: Get Me High!

Get Me High! was developed hand in hand with diabetics to ensure that nothing is missing along the way: taste, effectiveness or convenience. It's a product made from people living with diabetes for people living with diabetes. Our goal is to make life with diabetes (a little) easier. We are full of hope and can't wait to share our vision with the diabetes community!
