My understanding of the logic behind eating low carb when taking insulin as someone with type 1 (and no insulin resistance) is to reduce insulin doses and, therefore, reduce errors in dose and timing which may lead to hypos or highs. The idea that the effect of cummulative errors on small numbers is much less than the effect of cummulative errors on large numbers. I am a non-low carb grazer and have always been. My diabetes management is pretty good (Hb1AC in the 40s) and I have no need to lose weight. I have been experimenting with low carb snacking to reduce my insulin stacking. Although I have not had any problems through insulin stacking, it makes it harder to predict my BG before exercising so thought low carb snacks such as protein bars and nuts should reequire less insulin leading to less rollercoastering BG and less insulin on board when I hit the gym. However, low carb high protein snacks, such as nuts or skyr-style yoghurts, are causing my BG to spike. I believe this is due to glycogenesis so have started taking 50% insulin for the protein as well as the insulin for the carbs. This has resulted in me taking as much insulin as I would when not eating low carb and wondering why I am bothering with the low carb snacks. I do not eat meat so low carb high fat snack options are limited - I feel unwell if I eat cheese every day. And have no intention to give up snacking as this would cause me to lose weight. I am interested in input from others with type 1 on their experience of low carb eating - do you find it low carb snacks reduce your insulin dose at all?
