The Ketogenic Diet for Type 1 Diabetes: Reduce Your HbA1c and Avoid Diabetic Complications

Before the invention of insulin, type 1 diabetic (T1D) patients were advised to avoid sugar and starch (carbohydrate) and to eat a very low carb, ketogenic diet to control blood sugar.

Before the invention of insulin, type 1 diabetic (T1D) patients were advised to avoid sugar and starch (carbohydrate) and to eat a very low carb, ketogenic diet to control blood sugar. In contrast, modern advice is to eat carbohydrates and treat the resulting high blood sugar with large doses of insulin. This “eat carb and take more insulin” method increases the cost of diabetic care and does nothing to protect the patient from symptoms and complications. Worse, it exposes T1D patients to the real danger of a fatally low blood-sugar episode (hypoglycemia). The logical solution is to reduce both carb intake and insulin dosage. Avoiding carbs while enjoying foods rich in healthy fats and protein stabilizes blood sugar and reduces medication costs and the risk of long-term complications. The Ketogenic Diet for Type 1 Diabetes provides the tools and information you need to successfully take control of your diabetes. In addition to clear explanations of the science, you’ll find personal success stories, lists of the foods to eat and to avoid, cooking tips, how to get started and personalize the diet, adapting basal and bolus insulin doses, and special considerations for children with T1D.

The First Step on the Road to Health for Type 1 Diabetics If you are a type 1 diabetic (as I am) and want to gain control of your blood glucose, weight, energy, reduce complications, reduce insulin, and no longer be hungry…this book has the answers (and the questions). I spent months of intensive research to find the right diet for me to gain control of my diabetes as it had come close to taking my life. We know the conventional treatments for type 1 diabetes do not work and only lead to increased complications and pain. This well written book…

Divorce the ADA and go keto for health This is a must have book to follow. Your insulin-dependent diabetes and everything you worry about regarding long term health will be exponentially improved. You can do it and this excellent book tells you how and why and doesn’t try to “sell” you on anything other than your own body and your intelligence and DATA! The answer is here – not with the ADA.

To the point, easy to read, does what it says on the cover. Very useful. Highly recommended. I got the electronic version direct from Dr Runyan’s site. I read it on my Ipad. I found/find it excellent. I go back to it frequently for specifics on how to construct (and reconstruct/adapt) my diet.I have also read and also highly recommend “Dr Bernstein’s diabetes solution”, and also go back to that one for reference, but I find “The Ketogenic Diet” book easier to read.I also recommend “think like a pancreas” which i am currently reading…
