    Mom Raises Awareness About Low-Carbohydrate Approach for Diabetes

    Post by graham64 on Sun Nov 25 2018, 21:44

    Earlier this year, we introduced you to the McKenzie family in the article Going Against The Grain: How One Family is Challenging Mainstream Diabetes Management. We have been following their non-profit organization, The Rivere Foundation, and the associated Let Me Be 83 movement, which focuses on providing educational materials about effective blood glucose management to those newly-diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. The foundation also raises awareness about diabetes symptoms and supports cure-based research efforts.

    A Low-Carbohydrate Approach for Type 1 Diabetes
    When Bethany McKenzie’s son, River, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes about five years ago, the family diligently followed the recommended carbohydrate intake and administered insulin accordingly. However, they quickly discovered that the advice to “eat normally” and simply cover the food with insulin wasn’t working very well. Instead, this typical advice resulted in many dangerous and anxiety-provoking blood glucose swings.

    Unwilling to settle for such a reality, the family began to explore other options, and through the advice of diabetes online community members, came across the book Diabetes Solution by Dr. Richard Bernstein. Dr. Bernstein is an 83-year old physician and engineer, who has been living with type 1 diabetes since age twelve, and advocates for a low-carbohydrate approach for people with diabetes. The main tenet of the philosophy centers on the “laws of small numbers,” which dictate that by minimizing carbohydrate intake, the mistakes associated with carbohydrate counting and insulin dosing as well as variability in insulin absorption and activity, etc. can be greatly minimized, thereby helping patients to achieve much more predictable and stable blood glucose levels, consistently.
