    DIATRIBE: MAKING SENSE OF DIABETES

    Low-Carb vs. High-Carb Part 2: My Diabetes Diet Battle Continues

    By Adam Brown

    Tripling my carbs –> 5 fewer hours in-range per day, 64% more insulin (!), & more lessons learned.

    I’ve discovered a therapy that:

    Keeps my blood sugar in range ~75-95% of the time with a low risk of hypoglycemia;

    Uses ~30-65% less insulin;

    Cuts my odds of taking the wrong dose of insulin and experiencing severe hypoglycemia;

    Requires less time spent on diabetes tasks;

    Eliminates lots of diabetes anxiety, frustration, and feelings of failure;

    Keeps my blood pressure, cholesterol, and weight in a healthy range;

    Counters what I was told at diagnosis, what the average diabetes diet looks like, and what the food environment encourages me to eat.

    And it’s only three words: eat fewer carbohydrates.
