It seems logical to me, and the low carb team, the longer a diabetic runs elevated BG numbers, the greater the chance of diabetic complications. Thus by extension, the younger a person is at diagnosis, the greater the effort must be made, to keep BG numbers in the non diabetic normal range, and the greater the odds for living a long, active and complication free life...
After struggling to normalise Patrick's blood glucose levels by following the recommended Australian diet for diabetes management, Justin and Julie discovered Low Carb via Dr. Richard K. Bernstein's 'Diabetes Solution' and the Facebook group TYPEONEGRIT.
By adopting a Low Carb lifestyle and incorporating the latest Continuous Glucose Monitoring technology, Patrick now has a HBA1c of a non-diabetic and many symptoms of his food allergies have disappeared.
