How to Avoid Complications of Type 1 Diabetes

Dr. R. David Dikeman - Presentation (SD 2016)5.0 out of 5 stars5 star95%4 star4%3 star0%2 star0%1 star0%43 ratings4337:28


Why are the recommendations to people with diabetes to eat a high-carb diet a bad idea? How does it likely increase the risk of complications massively? And what is the alternative?

This is one of the most personal and powerful presentations from the recent Low Carb USA conference. In it Dr. David Dikeman tells the story of how his son was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes – and came back home with dietary advice that sent his blood sugar on a rollercoaster.

Then Dr. Dikeman and his wife stumbled upon Dr. Bernstein’s low-carb work and started implementing his recommendations. This totally changed his son’s life.
