My blood sugars have definitely benefited from a low carb high protein diet. Protein is definitely key to work into every meal of the day to achieve a balanced diet and tightly controlled blood sugars. The less insulin you take while staying in control, the easier it will be to manage blood sugars.My key is, fewer carbs - more exercise - more protein and healthy fat - less bloused insulin.
