    um, my doctor told me to cut out carbs. I don't know of any doctor that will tell a diabetic to carb load

    TYPE 2! TYPE2! TYPE2! Come one.. this should have been clear right from the beginning! Shame on you.

    Type 1 means you have no islet cells... at ALL. THAT means your body makes NO INSULIN AT ALL!!!

    THAT means, you cannot reverse your condition through diet, it also very highly likely means you are also NOT overweight.

    It should be freaking obvious. Having said that, I'm betting that eating enough fat, which most Americans don't do, due to the messed up guidelines for the last 50ish years, would probably still help stabilize BG, lower your A1C and reduce your dosage of insulin.

    The information presented here is to fight insulin resistance, which is probably not present if you can't produce it on your own.

    There is currently no cure for type 1 diabetes, unfortunately. Having said that, there have been advances in the procedures needed to transplant a healthy pancreas, and the really astounding one involves injecting capsaisin into the pancreas and it grows new Islet cells in response... in rats anyway.

    Give it a try. I began the LCHF diet in January because I researched the question Type 1 diabetes and high blood pressure. To my horror I found that excess insulin reduces the flexibility of the veins causing HBP. How nice, and thanks to all endocronologists for never telling me this critical piece of information.
    The first few weeks had no reduction in sugar levels. However, six weeks later and I have reduced my basal by 50% and bolus is also reduced because I am not dosing for carb loading. Blood pressure down from 150-180/90 to 140-150/85.
    I'm not LCing to lose weight, I want to be in the best of health so that when the way to regrow Islet Cells becomes known, I can do exactly that.
