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:
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?
