WARNING: RISK OF THYROID C-CELL TUMORS In rodents, semaglutide causes dose-dependent and treatment-duration-dependent thyroid C-cell tumors at clinically relevant exposures. It is unknown whether Ozempic® causes thyroid C-cell tumors, including medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC), in humans as human relevance of semaglutide-induced rodent thyroid C-cell tumors has not been determined. Ozempic® is contraindicated in patients with a personal or family history of MTC and in patients with Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia syndrome type 2 (MEN 2). Counsel patients regarding the potential risk for MTC with the use of Ozempic® and inform them of symptoms of thyroid tumors (e.g. a mass in the neck, dysphagia, dyspnea, persistent hoarseness). Routine monitoring of serum calcitonin or using thyroid ultrasound is of uncertain value for early detection of MTC in patients treated with Ozempic®. Ozempic® is not recommended as a first-line therapy for patients who have inadequate glycemic control on diet and exercise because of the uncertain relevance of rodent C-cell tumor findings to humans. Ozempic® has not been studied in patients with a history of pancreatitis. Consider other antidiabetic the Continue reading >>

    I have done Keto before (WAY before I was diagnosed) and it was really effective for me and my SO and if I can I would love to go at it again for multiple reasons. I've read about Low Carb/Keto for diabetics but it seems to mostly address type 2s. Is there anything different for type 1 diabetics? Would I just never take insulin? Is there a different metric for protein vs carbs? I'm very thankful for any advice. PS I am freshly diagnosed (February and I'm 23)

    You must, must, must always take insulin (until we get a cure). If you don't, you will end up in diabetic ketoacidosis, which is not fun for anyone. Being in ketosis due to a diet like this isn't a problem, but being in ketoacidosis due to a lack of insulin is. On this type of diet, you will typically see a reduction in the amount of insulin you need, usually both for basal (background, 24-hour) and bolus (meal-time) doses.
    That said, many of us do low-carb or keto, not just for the benefits others see (ie weight loss), but also because it makes it easier to control blood sugar. Fewer carbs means fewer spikes means lower doses means smaller margin of error.
    As a new diabetic, I'd strongly advise you pick up a copy of Dr. Bernstein's Diabetes Solution. He's a type 1 engineer who became an endocrinologist to better treat the disease. I'd been diabetic for nearly a decade before I read his book, and I didn't really understand the disease until then. He's a strong proponent of a low-carb diet for diabetics as the only way to maintain near normal blood sugar, and thus prevent long-term complications. His diet is pretty strict, but even if you don't follow it precisely, it's a good starting point.

    Egg said it best. You will always need insulin, unless you get a beta cell transplant. On Keto my insulin needs dropped 88% so far. I am on pump but I only take a basal dose and no longer need a bolus dose. However, I run a longer acting insulin in my pump. Regardless, you will see a much different insulin need on ketogenic diet. It is common sense, you are carb intolerant. If you were lactose intolerant you would stop drinking milk right?
