Hi all, I am a 33 year old male and was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes on 24 January 2017. I struggled initially with my hypers and my blood sugars were always quite high. Recently I have read a book entitled 'Brightspots and Landmines' and the author suggests a lower carbohydrate diet would benefit Type 1 diabetics. This is at odds with the advice given by the hospital. I am quite convinced though that the hospital are much more interested in making things 'easier' for me and ultimately making sure I don't die. I guess this reflects badly on them if I do... Anyway, I guess my question is what are the forum members thoughts about a lower carbohydrate diet. I have been following what the author of the book suggests for a couple of weeks and have been feeling much better. Plus, I am wearing a flash glucose monitor and have been having much flatter blood glucose levels. Any advice or guidance would be much appreciated.
