I was diagnosed T1D 2 years ago at age 36 and went raw for a while in an attempt to not take any insulin – I’m quite stubborn. Since accepting what’s happening in my body, I’ve gone back onto insulin. I see from a post that you’re on Humalog/Lantus. I’m currently on Apidra/Lantus but when first diagnosed was prescribed Humalog. (Different doctors). I’m interested to hear your experience with different medication, if you have changed at all since your diagnosis? I see you’re now Metformin. I fully understand each person has their own experience, I’m merely interested in yours. Not about to change mine just cos you said so! I’m also a yoga teacher and am in a 12 week HIIT challenge so am carefully monitoring my insulin intake and bg levels with this new rhythm of training and a ketogenic diet seems to keep coming up as one that will support me. A whole new world! LikeLike Reply July 24, 2017 - 7:31 am Keith Runyan, MD I have tried a number of different insulin preparations including regular human insulin, Levimer, Lente, and Ultralente. I seem to do best with Humalog and Lantus U100. I tried metformin, but so far have had intolerable side effects (fatigue and diarrhea), so am currently off. My understanding is that the three rapid-acting insulin preparations are very similar i.e. are essentially the same in their onset of action, time to peak action, and duration of action. Glad you like my blog and find it helpful. All the best to you.

Seems you have had good experience with this diet, in your opinion, are these risks real ? Thanks LikeLike Reply March 28, 2018 - 7:37 pm Keith Runyan, MD Jon, in those with type 1 diabetes, there is always a risk of diabetic ketoacidosis. The question is: does eating a ketogenic diet increase the risk of diabetic ketoacidosis? I am unaware of any theoretical reason why it should, nor am I aware of any studies that have examined the question. See blog post #14.
