Jacinda says, “is the Keto way of
eating okay for a type one diabetic?”
Really cool question, thanks Jacinda.
Type one diabetics are special breed of
diabetics
so in essence type one diabetics born
with diabetes or they may get diagnosed
when they’re like five or six years old.
Generally type one diabetics aren’t
overweight. You
know they’re not generally overweight
type two diabetics, not all type two
diabetics are like hugely overweight, but
generally is a bit of a rule of thumb I
suppose. So you have to be quite careful
as a type one diabetic to manage your
blood Sugar’s well. Because you
can be prone to hypos more than a type
two diabetic. So keto has been studied
in type two diabetics for losing weight
and has been proven to be quite good. As
has a low calorie diet of 800 calories
or less has been proven to sometimes
reverse type 2 diabetes entirely. So
there’s lots of different ways of
tackling type-2 diabetes with diet, but
type one I would probably advise
caution so if you are type one diabetic
and you wanted to try something I would
do it in partnership with your GP, and
make sure that you’re monitoring your
Sugar’s really closely. Keto is high in
fat low in carbohydrate, so therefore all
of your insulin dosing will mean that
your Sugar’s will crash and burn and you
don’t want to go there because it will
lead to a coma. So just be careful with
that Jacinda. I would work really
closely with someone. Maybe even a
nutritionist.
