Managing Blood Sugar in Type 1 Diabetes by Eating Low Carb

Is a low-carb diet good for managing blood sugar in diabetes type 1? Sure. It’s been shown in studies and many people have experienced it. Including this tech blogger, who just wrote a detailed analysis of his experiences:

Diabetes and Tech: Managing Glycaemic Variability by Eating Low Carb. Does It Work?

High blood glucose variability is a risk factor in diabetes, since it amplifies the risk of diabetes complications such as retinopathy, neuropathy and nephropathy – as well as the risk of hypos.

Low carb stabilizes blood sugar and keeps it within range more than a “regular” diet, meaning that diabetes risks should be significantly lowered.

Do you agree that a low-carb diet is better for managing type 1 diabetes?

Professor Noakes: How Incorrect Dietary Management Cause Diabetes to Be a Progressive Disease

This post by Professor Tim Noakes was first published at The Noakes Foundation.

My interest in the dietary management of diabetes stems from watching my father’s rapid downward physical descent in the years after he was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM); the diagnosis of T2DM in myself; and my reading of the “alternative” literature which convinces me that T2DM does not have to be an inevitably progressive disease.

My conclusion is that unlike my father, it is not my pre-ordained fate to die from the final common pathway in fatal T2DM – disseminated obstructive arterial disease. But to achieve that I will have to ignore what I was taught and which, in turn, I have conveyed to 2 generations of students. Continue Reading →

Lowering Blood Glucose in Type 2 Diabetes Lowers Risk of Eye Damage

Lowering blood glucose in type 2 diabetes using medications dramatically lowers risk of eye damage (diabetic retinopathy), according to a new study:

Health Central: How You Can Cut Your Risk of Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetes Journals: Persistent Effects of Intensive Glycemic Control on Retinopathy in Type 2 Diabetes

By keeping your blood glucose in check with medications, you can cut your risk of getting eye complications by half. The only tiny problem is that the study (ACCORD) also showed that the drugs increased mortality. That is, they killed more people than they saved.

Is there a better way than using drugs? For example, normalizing blood glucose using a simple dietary change? If so that would be fantastic.

Fortunately it’s likely to be quite possible. Check out the links below.
