    Maybe, but you are not Type 1.

    It is your theory that is not right according to those who post on the RH forum.
    Starch in any form is bad!

    Hi

    I have a form of reactive hypoglycemia. I have a web site which is advertised on google in the U.S. and India. A lot of doctors in India have given me a thumbs up. I have over an average of 700 hits a day from India. A few doctors in the U.S. have given me a thumbs up. I have an average of about 30 hits a day from the U.S..

    Hi
    1 of the (women?) who works for this site tried to control her type 1 diabetes with diet for years. She ran into trouble because she wasn't processing excess protein with insulin. She is now on a lot of insulin. So could she have controlled the byproducts of protein being changed into urea by insulin by cutting her protein intake and/or could she have detected that (ammonia?) was building up and occasionally take insulin and/or some other treatment? I do not know.

    Having a hit on a site does not imply that the hitter agrees with you. It is obvious now that you know nothing about Diabetes. I am concerned about you but at the same time I hope you are not giving advice re diet or medications for Diabetes anywhere on the net.

    Yetta - Please send me a PM containing the name of the T1 person helping to run this site who has been managing their T1 diabetes with diet alone.

    I know of no such person, but I do know quite a lot of people involved with the running of this site.

    In the brain, insulin is involved in signalling through the Akt pathway, which is involved in mitochondrial motility, cell death/survival signalling, including the initiation of apoptosis, memory formation, cell growth, cognition, lipid metabolism, protein phosphorylation...I could go on but I won't

    Hi

    You are right. That is why I have asked my question. I know of 1 women who works for this site who tried to control her type 1 diabetes with diet for years, she ran into trouble because she didn't use insulin to process excess protein (ammonia?).. Could she have prevented this problem by carefully controlling the amount of protein in her diet and/or could she have detected the problem and/or occasionally taken insulin or some other treatment. I don't know.

    @Jaylee @DCUKMod I know it's been said before that we don't censor here, but I can't help but feel that this thread should be locked or even deleted - were a newly diagnosed T1 or parent of a T1 to stumble across it, they may get the impression that T1 can be managed by diet alone, which could be dangerous and even fatal. It doesn't make a lot of sense, but when people are desperate things don't need to make sense, if confronted with the idea of having to watch your child live with this condition with injections.

    Fasting glucose rise because the liver has become insulin resistant and can't stop the glycogen from flow out.

    Get a ketones meter and you may discover the source of your genius moments...

    I have a form of reactive hypoglycemia. I know you can control your blood sugar with diet but I do not know if you can handle the excess protein by cutting your protein input and/or detect the problem (ammonia?) and occasionally use insulin and/or some other method to control the problem.
