Troy Stapleton - I Manage My Type 1 Diabetes By Eating LCHF


Excellent new video for Type 1 diabetics. Covers conventional high-carb/low-fat treatment that gives poor results, and LCHF which gives excellent control. Which was his own experience.

I manage my T1 with a HCLF VEGAN diet - dx in 1970, no complications. Check out nutritionfacts.org for mountains of science.

I'm assuming that both take insulin, the real manager of T1. Wonder which one uses less and whose BG fluctuates the least?

I've looked for this mystery mountain on nutritionfacts and can't find it. Is there any real science there on LCHF? I mean on truly LCHF? IF there is, nobody else is letting on they exists, mainly because those studies have not been done.

I wish you well in your way of eating, glad it is successful for you, but with me being a type 2 and not wanting to take any more medications than absolutely necessary, it would lead to my early demise. I'll stick with LCHF, since I too, suffer from no complications.

nutritionfacts promotes a whole food plant based diet - there's is a lot of info there about lchf (https://nutritionfacts.org/video/pal...show-benefits/) but very little good science to support it. so if your goal is to avoid long term complications then go vegan. as for T2, check out all the info at pcrm.org about reversing T2 ... again with a whole food plant based low fat diet. I wish you well too.

This low carb high fat thing - I don't necessarily think you need to go as far as going vegan, but I do see some truly odd advice on this topic sometimes, e.g. people eating sausages wrapped in bacon, etc. Okay that might be low carb high fat but it's full of salt, and diabetics are prone to high blood pressure, so the last thing you want to be doing is eating a lot of salt. Salt is a worse thing to have in your diet than carbohydrates as a diabetic. You should never go over the RDA for sodium.

Anyway we have Fiasp insulin up here and it only costs CAD $45 for a 10ml vial (I suspect when it gets approved in the US it will be something like $300 for a 10ml vial), so I can bring down hypers really quickly so the diet issue is not as big of a deal anymore.

Went from 396BG and 160/110 BP and 80bpm resting heart rate

to

75BG and 120/75 BP and 46bpm resting heart rate going LOW CARB HIGH FAT.

Doctor is totally happy with where I am and I am in better shape than most at my age. EKG, Cholesterol (175), everything is better than most. (ALL WITH NO MEDICATION)

I'll stick with a LCHF ketotarian lifestyle since I have proven beyond a shadow of a doubt what causes type 2 diabetes and what puts in in remission.

Good luck with your methods. if they work for you, then you definitely should keep it up

I'll still go by the large scale journal science rather than anecdotes.

https://nutritionfacts.org/video/how...from-diabetes/
https://nutritionfacts.org/video/pla...-and-diabetes/

In terms of complications, comparing your 1 or 10 years to my 40 is a really apples and oranges. As an incurable (T1) and chronic condition with devastating long term complications, I consider the challenge more to be a marathon rather than a race - we can all throw around our "numbers" all day long, but in the end it's about long term results and staying healthy while aging. Case in point ...

https://nutritionfacts.org/video/whi...r-our-kidneys/

... honestly, this video alone should be reason enough for all diabetics to be on a whole food plant based diet.

Im glad it works for you... Keep it up

I'll stick to what I feel is best for me from my research .

Thanks for the information. This site is for all and no ones experience is any better than anyone else's and I'm glad your experiences are so good and you are sharing them for anyone interested

Personally , My research and results lead me to where I am and I am happy with my numbers and so is my doctor. I will stick by the method that works for me and I would no doubt know you will stick by what works for you.

Good luck

when you are on VLC/HF especially in ketosis , you probably lack salt and dehydration due to lack of salt is very common in people who are ketogenic.

And regarding Fiasp insulin, I am sure it will do the job it says but still prefer to get my numbers down naturally first and that is what I decided to do. I could have taken the road where I get medication or insulin or I could take the dietary approach first and changing my diet caused me not to need any insulin.

and in my opinion, salt is not worse than carbohydrates. Diabetes (or prediabetes) is in almost 50% of the united states and that is 100% because of carbs and not salt.

As a diabetic, if I went salt free but ate lots of carbs... I would be taking medication and if I still ate lots of carbs I would end up dead (my opinion)... its easier to eliminate excess salt than carbs.
