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.

The best book to get is the current version of "Diabetes Solution."

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.

Gerri,

Thank you for this link. I think I have to buy the book 1st and understand the concept of how this affects the kidneys then go from there. Still curious if there is anyone else out there on this diet that IS in 3rd stage Renal Failure ( It is under control at the moment)

Gail,

If you can't afford a phone consult, Dr. B does monthly web casts. Questions are submitted for Dr B. You can sign up at www.diabetesincontrol.com

Thanks Natalie. I have not read his book yet, This is just the beginning for me. I want better control & to lose some weight! Is his tel # in his book? I have had T1 for 48 years so I am use to low carb. my intak is aprox 150-190 grams daily and I am on the Omnipod pump :-)

Gail, that might be worth a call to Dr. Bernstein himself. In a conference call, a long time ago, he said that he has his patients using a lot of oil, and cutting down or out on the protein. But I may not be remembering correctly, so don't take my word for it. I do know that he does telephone consultations; I don't know what he charges for them, but it might be worth it.
