I absolutely appreciate the anecdotal evidence of all diabetics, which can be extremely helpful.
We all know the prevailing wisdom isn’t always as accurate as it could or should be!
At the same time I’m naturally a sceptic, and I would like to see some scientific data to back up these claims.
For example, in regards to the concept of imitating the non-diabetic in this “advanced” treatment method.
Do we know the non-diabetic metabolism uses more basal and less bolus, which appears as part of the comparison?
Also how is glucose, a carbohydrate, simulating glucagon, a hormone, and glycogen? As I understand it, glucagon is not absent in all Type 1 patients. And I can stimulâte glycogen synthesis by exercising, simultaneously increasing insulin sensitivity, gaining fitness and reducing overall basal.
The benefits of exercise- cardiovascular and blood vessel health, can also prevent complications and improve mood and quality of life and I find exercise to be essential as a diabetic.
And finally what is the goal? Reduction of insulin usage, A1C, post meal spikes, snacking all day? (All of which are good!)
I’d really just like to see some evidence. I’m hesitant to try something I read online, especially after closing in on 40 years of Diabetes technology and prescriptions that haven’t always worked as advertised.
Thanks to everyone!
