    I did have an MRI scan, yes. I was literally sat in the chair waiting for a permanent nerve blocker when we decided at the last moment that the slight improvement I’d had was worth watching for a few weeks. Then my team and I decided that the risks just weren’t worth it, and it’s just got better and better. It’s been weeks since I last noticed it. At its peak I was considering ending it.

    Some of my T1 buddies think my management regime is too full on and that I deny myself too much- very low carb and correcting in the sixes, but I daren’t risk the TN coming back.

    Thanks for sharing as your success story with keto and type 1 plus good tech is inspirational. I am just re reading Dr Bernstein in the hope that I can nail my own control (am struggling after 2 bugs really spiked me for weeks at a time). It is too late for my eyes (now partially sighted) but still a lot of vital organs left to protect from the ravages of wobbly sugars!

    I cannot understand how I only came across this today - maybe at one of those times when my laptop was an in-patient! Whatever, this is terrific news and a real inspiration for so many. Very happy for you!
