Let’s spread awareness!
As many may know my husband, Mr. LowCarb, is a type 1 diabetic so this topic is very near and dear to my heart. In the low carb/keto/carnivore community we hear a lot about type 2 diabetes and reversing it through adopting a ketogenic way of life which is great and important to share and change the way the medical establishment treats T2D. But a type 1 diabetic does not have the opportunity to reverse their diabetes because it wasn’t caused by poor diet to begin with. It is an autoimmune disorder that their body started attacking itself killing the betacells and basically rendering the part of the pancrease useless. They will always have to take insulin be it by injection or pump.
Since insulin dependant diabetes cannot be reversed what awareness needs to be spread? We need to spread the awareness that diet is even more important for them to protect their organs, limbs, eyes and life from diabetic complications. Sugar and carbs are poison to everyone, but especially a T1D! Did you know that a T1D can also aquire type 2 diabetes when their bodies become resistant to the insulin being injected because of needing so much of it for the high carb diet that they are taught to eat?!
I will be forever grateful for falling down the rabbit hole of intermitten fasting through Dr. Jason Fung’s teaching which led of to many other terrific experts in which to lock arms with and spread this teaching. One of these experts, for who I can never express enough thanks for, is Dr. Bernstein, a type 1 diabetic endocronoligist,and his teaching to help type 1 diabetes have normal A1Cs and spared from a lifetime of complications! He is saving lives! R.D. Dikman has been spending years helping spread Dr. Bernstein’s message because it helped his diabetic son! We need more R.D.s in this world! R.D. shared information on a documentary called “The Diabetes Solution”, named after Dr. Berstein’s book The Diabetes Solution.
This documentary is so crucial to watch and share! We need more documentaries like this. Type 1 diabetics get left behind and will always be trapped in the medical establishment. The industry makes them jump through hoops T1D cannot live without insulin and the medical establishment knows this. This video is not free and is worth EVERY SINGLE DIME. You can purchase at Vimeo and Prime for about $13. I am sure it is being distributed through other sources as well.
