Is the paleo diet safe for someone with type 1 diabetes? I've been a type 1 diabetic for over 6 years and I am in my 20's. Thought this would something good to try.

Ok, so I'm a Type 1 diabetic that loves coffee. I've given it up in the past and am considering doing so again, however there are days that I find it hard to be productive without it. I'm hoping that doing so will help me sleep better and have... (more)

Yes, @stringbeany sounds like a very typical story. I started up this year after decades off it, and quickly progressed so that I need my fix or get a headache. I agree it disrupts probiotics, & many are addicted to the digestive... (more)

So the general concensus is that fructose is bad, however, as a type 1 diabetic, I commonly use fruit to correct hypoglycemic episodes. Would I benefit from switching to pure dextrose even though pure dextrose comes from processing?

Use Glucose Tabs or Glucose Syrup. I am a follower of Dr. Bernstein and Dr. Rosedale. Dr. Bernstein is a stickler for precision. Glucose is what you need to bring your glucose in your blood up. It is the fastest. It is precise. 4 gram tabs bring... (more)

I'm a type 1 diabetic and an avid follower of Robb Wolf. When I heard that Type 1 are essentially Celiac in nature I asked my endo about it. She said yes that she finds it in a third of her patients. She gave me a preliminary test that came back... (more)
