On the DR. Bernstein Diet and need help with insulin usage.

Posted on January 25, 2011 at 9:12am 8 Comments

I recently got my Diabetes Solution book and am reading through it. My question is after or even before a small meal if my sugars are running high 100's to mid 200's should I go ahead and take some Humalog? Last night I finally experienced two low sugars, over correct the last and woke up with a sugar of 279. I am trying hard for the last 3 weeks to low carb it and now that I have the book I am trying to learn it all as fast as I can. Any help from this knowledgeable group is much appreciated!

Hi Yolanda, I have also read Neal Barnards book. I have the Diabetic Solutions book also. I haven't joined that group because I am too new to this stuff to really be an authority with others. Vegan cooking like Barnard's sure seems like its good for health. Bernstein on the other hand is a type 1 who is into carb counting, timing, and the study of blood glucose spikes. Since HgbA1c is a disappointing 6.0, which is an average of 126mm/Dl I don't know if I deserve to be giving advice. The way I did it was only to choose selected fruits with low Glycemic index, and if blood glucose got too high to stop them: those being berries and grapefruit, lemons and lime. Pineapple, Orange juice are some of the highest GI level, mangoes, I stay away from like the plague. Avocados and tomatoes are technically fruit and those are eaten regularly.For me the ADA Levels are too high, and I listen to what Jenny Rahl, says about not having a blood glucose over 140 cause that is where neuropathy starts. She is a type 2, but seems very scholarly. Here its LADA which is insulin dependent l form of diabetes like type 1 but also has the insulin resistance of Type 2..... I just didn't want to stay silent to your post, and give you my input and let you decide for yourself and take it for what its worth. take care

Hello Yolanda! I'm so glad that you found the Hungarian group and wrote :) I am American, but married to a Hungarian and we live in Budapest. I decided to post that group in case any Hungarians joined TuDiabetes -- you are the first one to write!! I have type 1 as well.

Szép napot!

I have an excess of One Touch test strips if you can use them. My supplier messed up several times over with double shipments and I have a large quantity of back stock. If I can send some to you please let me know. I'd be more than happy to help you out.

Sincerely
Rose
