Dr B was right. Over the course of the last year I have raised my good cholesterol up 11 points to 35 and my overall lipid profile has improved dramatically. With more exercise I can get it in normal range. Thank you Dr B. I never really watched fats during this time but boy did I watch carbs.

I'm T1 & have been following Dr. B's recommendations for over 2.5 years. Dr. B is a T1.

Too many of us are told to eat for the insulin, which is wrong. Lowering carbs doesn't mean you'll have more lows. My experience has been the same as onesaint's. Taking correspondingly smaller insulin limits the swings between high-highs & low-lows.

Correction, Ive been low carb for about 9 months now. Wow.

Im T1 and have been eating low carb for about 5 months. I get lows although, they are less severe than they used to be with less rebounds. This past week, I had maybe 1 low a day, that was down to 60ish and 1 low for the week to 50. That beats the heck out of what I used to get. On the other side though, you might be swayed to eat this way full time as the results are pretty astounding. This is a so/so day for me.

Can Type I diabetics use this diet? I need to lose 20-30 lbs. but I am SO scared of getting low blood sugar reactions while eating such few carbs. Does anyone have advice/experiences to share? Thank you so much!

Bsc, I agree, and I've read all three of his books. For anyone with serious issues, all the detail in his latest book is essential. The diet book is so brief in comparison, but I bought it so I could compare it and have it on hand as a reference if someone asks as at the time I was helping a newly diagnosed type 2 diabetic stay off medications by using supplements and a 22 lb weight loss. So value for money, go for the latest, as people may give you page references to look at.

Thank you. That is what I will buy this weekend.
Comment by Brian (bsc) on March 4, 2011 at 7:29am
The best book to get is the current version of "Diabetes Solution."
Comment by Gail on March 4, 2011 at 6:23am
BSC, Thank you for this link. It is good to know this is also not a high protein diet. Which book of Dr. B's should I read 1st?
Comment by Brian (bsc) on March 3, 2011 at 3:36pm
I've submitted questions to Dr. B, a direct link is http://www.diabetes911.net/askdrb/thanks.php. It is good to listen to the podcast. The podcast is usually available for a month or so. Strict Dr. B is generally protein restricted, which is usually the issue with renal failure. I am not aware of high fat being an issue.
