Much valuable info in Dr. B's book. It's not a diet book. Don't bother buying his recipe book. Not many recipes & they're boring. Dozens & dozens of low carb recipe sites with far better options.

Atkins is different because it's about weight loss & has a stringent induction phase with carbs added in once the induction phase is over. They're certainly similar in that they're low carb. Dr. Bernstein's approach is solely based on controlling BG. Atkins isn't. Best to read his book Diabetes Solution. Dr. Atkins really did sell out with his "diet" foods that aren't diabetic friendly.

I was slurping down my coconut milk/hemp protein shake the other day and realized that this year I am thankful for all of you! Hope you all had a good holiday.

Thanks. I look into those books. I am dosing him now according to the carbs he eats and correcting before meals with that reading. Seems to work sometimes and other times, not so much.

Usually, total daily dose and I:C and carb sensistivity ratio will be proportional to body weight, insulin sensitivity and activity level. For a children, they will tend to be carb and insulin sensitive. Dr. B notes that a gram of carbs raises him 5-10 mg/dl, but for myself, I rise 2-3 mg/dl/g. You should probably be focusing on your I:C ratio and keeping after meal variations controlled. I learned a lot about insulin dosing and these sorts of relationships from the books "Using Insulin" and "Think Like a Pancreas."

Anyone know what the ratio for a child is on Dr. Bernstein's program? How many carbs, proteins, etc. and how much each carb raises a child's blood sugar? ( Adults is 1 carb= 5)

Here's a post from Chris Masterjohn with a different spin on hyperinsulinemia causes: Link->. I'm not calling it gospel but it's some good food for thought.

There was a few things I didnt not know though, like keto nutritionists. I didnt even know they existed.
