I have been a type 1 for 55 years now and are now eating a carbless diet to lower my insulin and reduce my number of daily injections.
Originally, I was taking 15 units Lantus in the morning and then 6-7 units of Humalog before each meal. I have been eating carbless now for 8 weeks and no longer take Humalog injections before meals. I do keep it around should I go above 200.
My diet consists of lots of vegetables, beans, meat, nuts, flax/fiber, eggs, and cheeses. There is no bread, flour, pasta, noodles, tacos/tortillas, or potatoes. I have made a decent flax based bread substitute using 4 tbsp flax(ground), 1 egg(beaten), 1 tsp baking powder, 1 squirt stevia, and a handful of sliced almonds. After beating the egg, combine everything in a large cup and micro for 1 minute.
I'd like to connect with people who may be looking into this type of diabetic control.
