“In short, it works”

Blood sugar before and after LCHF

Blood sugar before and after LCHF

Can an LCHF diet help people with type 1 diabetes?

According to the picture above and Greg’s personal story, the answer appears to be very clear:

The E-mail

Dr. Eenfeldt,

Just a quick note to thank you for your excellent website and approach to diabetes management. I’ve been type 1 over 30 years and saw endocrinologists, dietitians, etc. and faithfully read every issue of Diabetes Forecast. I NEVER heard of LCHF as an alternative to sliding scales, counting starches, etc. until I came across your website.

Attached is data from my CGM for the 30 days prior to LCHF and the first 30 days after. No counting portions, craving till the next meal or hunger pain. In short, it works. I’ve also lost 10 pounds (5 kg) in the first month and don’t feel like I’m on a diet. I’ve reduced my insulin to 1/3 of what I was taking pre-LCHF.

Best regards,


Congratulations, Greg, on finding a great way to manage your type 1 diabetes.

    Congratulations, Greg! Here's hoping you continue with the LCHF diet and your better health. I'm T1D also and have had similar results.

    For me one of the great things about this site is that your story can help motivate other T1D's. Thanks for sharing.
