Forgive my intrusion, but I'm so motivated and eager to learn more about how the Dukan Diet can help people with Diabetes.
I am T1 and have been for some 32 years, I am now at the point where my high HBA1C is driving me and my medical team MAD I desperately want to loose all of my post baby weight and I am very concerned that my doctor's have said that loosing weight on insulin is very hard as that hinders weigh loss...(not much support there then...)
If anyone who is Type1 and has tried the Dukan diet, did it actually work and was reducing your insulin dosage a hard process??
Please, please let me know

Are you sure you weren't secretly a type 2? because I thought type1 meant you couldn't produce any insulin, yet if you're eating as you say with no insulin, you must be producing some to achieve those BGs. I wouldn't say your diet was doing you any harm at all - sounds a bit like mine that I've been on for a while now, and I'm fitter than I've ever been! Whether the "no insulin" is doing you any harm - I don't know, but as its there to control sugar levels and you seem to be doing that anyway, I'd say you're O.k. Hopefully, an experienced type 1 will come along shortly and comment, but I'd be going back to the docs for tests!
