Low Carb for Beginners


  1. Elaine Biancaniello
    Dr.Runyun sounded exactly like me.
    I also was told I have LADA, at the age of 67.
    My sugars can go 600 to as low as 67
    I take 22 Units of Lantus, approx. 30 units of Novalog per day
    My AIC is 10.5
    I do watch my carbs,
    I am always hungry
    Thank Goodness, I eat several times a day but each meal is small (only because I could never eat large quantity) in any one seating. Always have been like that.
    Breakfast is my least favorite, Lunch is my favorite, Dinner is second.
    I am going to a renowned Doctor at the Un. of Pennsylvania.
    Have been for approx. 2 yrs.
    I am gaining weight since I have been put on the above units. I am very discourage.
    I do not exercize .. but having said that, I am always on the go. I may be old but I never stop going.
    I am at a lost of what to do.

    So many people, Type 1 and 2 and non-diabetics, are having extremely positive results following the keto lifestyle, myself included. I've cut my insulin needs down to a quarter of what I was taking, lost unwanted fat and maintain a pretty lean figure. Please research that, I know it can be a life-saving way of living. I started with Dr. Bernstein's book, "Dr. Bernstein's Diabetes Solution: The Complete Guide to Achieving Normal Bloodsugars." He is himself a Type 1, reversed all of his complications, and is now in his 80's super healthy.
