I was diagnosed by my naturopath who is a type one and follows Bernstein and takes only basal insulin. So that's what I started out doing after my stint in the hospital and my dx. The more cells I lose, almost all by now, the less fat I can eat without losing complete control. I have to take twice as much insulin just to get back down to normal. So, less insulin equals better control is not proving to be true. I ate a 70 carb lunch yesterday, mostly veggies, beans, low carb tortilla wrap with some turkey meat and minimal fat and stayed low all afternoon. Today I had a salad at a restaurant that was very low carb but high in fats and went so high I gasped. And six hours later I'm still correcting.. So I've learned from a few of you that this is your experience as well. I did eat low carb with a high quality olive oil last night and stayed pretty good. Does the kind of fat make a difference? I know I can't eat steak ever again unless I want to empty my pump out..... so how many of you are in the same boat? Do you get better control by using more insulin because you're eating higher carbs? Doesn't follow Bernstein's rule. I am dual waving, waiting a half hour to eat and more if I'm not in range. You guys have taught me lots of tricks, though I'm still experimenting with them.
