Get off the type 1 diabetes roller coaster

Can you benefit from eating a low-carb diet as a type 1 diabetic? And if so, what things should you have in mind when starting out?

Dr. Al-Lawati is an internal medicine specialist, doctor and type 1 diabetic – so his perspective is truly unique. In this interview from The Low Carb Universe in Mallorca in November 2017, he deep dives into this topic with Ivor Cummins.

Watch a part of the interview above (transcript). The full session is available (with captions and transcript) with a free trial or membership:

    Please please please help! I just sent an email to our hospitals head dietician. In it I was lamenting about a picture of a newly diagnosed type 1 diabetic in the hospital who was given a breakfast of French toast with syrup and a big bowl of cereal and how messed up that is.
    She sent me back a message saying “yea but protein and fat get turned into glucose by gluconeogenesis so where does it end ?” I then sent back a short and snippy” yea that’s not the same and it ends with carbs. “ WTF?!? Why do people get so upset when we ask to treat a disease appropriately??

    Fat does not turn to glucose. Protein can be converted but it tends to be demand driven, not automatically.

    Also to clarify, keto is high fat, not high protein to help avoid excess protein getting converted.
