    SUMMARY

    This article outlines my before and after experience in adopting in 1998 a low carbohydrate/low glycemic index/low insulin/moderate protein/appropriate fat approach to the management of my Type 1, insulin dependent diabetes.

    It outlines the rationale and many advantages of this approach, and the contradictions and some of the negative outcomes that are inherent in the high carbohydrate/high insulin approach.

    It points out my experience that an insulin pump is not necessary for excellent blood sugars.

    It also suggests that, subject to further research, this approach may have an additional benefit in developing countries, where insulin is often prohibitively expensive, as it results in a reduction in insulin needed.

    It should be understood that this does not represent the position of any medical organisation with which I work or of which I am a member.

    Expert advice should be sought before changes are made to a person treatment regime.

    Type two diabetic-low carb diet (50 carbs per day) and two 500mg Metformin pills per day. Apart from diagnosis HbA1c almost 12-all HbA1c results none diabetic. For over eight years my diabetes medication has not changed. My weight has remained stable, I have suffered no ill effects from my diet whatsoever. Every blood test has proved, I took the right road to my diabetic salvation. For almost seven years, I have asked medical professionals and naysayers, how do I maintain non diabetic BG levels on two Metformin other than low carb ? The silence has been deafening !
