Increased Insulin Resistance With A Low Carb Diet?

Diabetes Forum The Global Diabetes Community Find support, ask questions and share your experiences. Join the community Increased Insulin Resistance with a low carb diet? Bebo321 Family member Well-Known Member @azure @Brunneria @tim2000s , I would be interested to hear your thoughts on an observation of increased insulin resistance with a very low carb/keto diet. I was discussing this topic recently with somebody with T1D (we tried a food fast together over a number of days) They noticed that coming back out of the fast, their insulin requirements had increased fairly significantly in order to manage any carb they ate (the increased requirements only lasted a few days). Interestingly, their basal had remained exactly the same throughout the fast however and blood glucose levels had remained level. This would suggest that their 'insulin resistance' hadn't actually changed at all. What we considered had perhaps happened was that the body had become so effective at burning ketones and generating its own glucose requirements (gluconeogenesis), that once carbs were re-introduced, the body was fairly 'ambivalent' to it - after all, it had everything it needed to fuel itself perfectly w Continue reading >>

    I've seen quite a few people struggling with intermittent fasting this week. You did not have to go nuts with it on your first day. Go as long as you can without eating in the morning. If that's only 30 more minutes than what you normally would do, then that's fine.
    Work your way up to it. You'll be able to go longer and longer stretches the more times you try it. Stop trying to be a superhero on your first day of intermittent fasting.
    You'll start to get in the groove of it, and you have a bad day, then eat! And try again another day. Intermittent fasting shouldn't be a huge struggle.
    Also, you don't have to do it everyday. Do it once a month if that's all you can mentally handle. It's totally fine.

  2. JustFluffy

    It's also 100% okay if IF just isn't right for you! Some people like having smaller, more frequent meals, some people can handle only eating once or twice a day. Everyone is different.
    As long as you're losing, do what works best for you. IF is just an added tool/benefit.

  3. trojanguy

    Yeah, I was going to ask what the point is. I eat 3 meals a day and am feeling great, losing weight, etc. Wasn't sure why I'd throw fasting into the equation.

Carbs Too Low = Insulin Resistance? - Paul Jaminet : Low-carb War Zone Forum : Active Low-carber Forums

Carbs Too Low = Insulin Resistance? - Paul Jaminet Carbs Too Low = Insulin Resistance? - Paul Jaminet I've just started reading Paul Jaminet's book "Perfect Health Diet".........He is generally low carb (with "safe" starches), but the statement he made that really caught my attention (below) "You might think that the answer is to consume very few carbs. But this would be naive! It turns out that on low-carb diets, much of the body becomes insulin resistant meaning that it doesnt respond to insulin signals and so doesnt take in glucose after meals. This happens so that glucose will be directed to the liver, where it can be stored in glycogen and released later for use by the brain. This physiological insulin resistance is a protective response of the body that assures that the brain gets the benefit of a limited supply of glucose. But it has a paradoxical effect: because the rest of the body is refusing to take up glucose and the liver takes it up slowly, a meal of carbohydrates is followed by higher postprandial blood glucose levels in low-carb dieters than in high-carb dieters. In short, low-carb dieting can increase the risk of postprandial hyper -glycemia." Jaminet, Paul; Jamin Continue reading >>

    This serious complication, the result of acid buildup in the blood, can lead to coma or even death.
    If you have type 1 diabetes, one of the serious complications you may face is a condition known as ketoacidosis. In diabetic ketoacidosis, acids called ketones build up in your blood and could eventually lead to diabetic coma or death.
    But by vigilantly controlling your diabetes and watching for early signs of ketoacidosis, you can help prevent it from happening to you.
    What Is Diabetic Ketoacidosis?
    "When blood sugars get elevated and there is not enough insulin, your fat cells start to break down their storage sites of energy, which are called ketones," says Jay Cohen, MD, medical director of the Endocrine Clinic and clinical assistant professor in the department of family medicine at the University of Tennessee. Ketones are acidic, and that acid builds up in your blood.
    Diabetic ketoacidosis is found more often in younger people than older people, and more often in women than in men. At least 20 percent of people learn they have diabetes after seeking medical care for complaints that turn out to be symptoms of ketoacidosis.
    Common Causes of Diabetic Ketoacidosis
    The three common causes of ketoacidosis are:
    Not enough insulin. This can happen if you don’t inject enough insulin or if your insulin needs increase in response to an illness such as a cold or the flu. Blood glucose can’t be used for energy without enough insulin to help in the process, so the body breaks down fat for energy and high ketone levels result.
    "Elevated blood sugars could be due to an infection or any other physical or emotional stress — good or bad," says Dr. Cohen. Unexpected increases in your blood glucose levels can increase your insulin needs. "You may have a certain amount of insulin that you usually use, but if you have an infection, you may need more insulin to help your body to improve blood sugars," Cohen explains.
    Not enough food intake. If you don’t eat enough, your body has to break down fat for energy, producing high ketone levels. This is particularly common in people who are sick and don't feel like eating.
    Low blood glucose levels. This situation can force your body to break down fat to use as energy, resulting in ketone production.
    Diabetic Ketoacidosis Symptoms
    Symptoms of ketoacidosis usually progress relatively slowly. But since diabetic ketoacidosis can be a life-threatening condition, it is important to seek medical help immediately if you experience any of its symptoms. These include:
    Excessive thirst
    Dry mouth
    Frequent urination
    Elevated blood glucose levels
    Elevated ketones in the urine
    Persistent fatigue
    Skin that is dry or flushed
    Nausea or vomiting
    Pain in your abdomen
    Shortness of breath
    A fruity smell to your breath (the result of elevated ketone levels)
    Inability to concentrate
    Confused state
    Preventing Diabetic Ketoacidosis
    Ask your endocrinologist how you can reduce your risk of developing diabetic ketoacidosis. It is often a good idea to use a home dipstick test to check for ketones in your urine when your blood glucose levels are high (over 240 milligrams per deciliter) and when you have an infection.
    Diabetes education also helps. One study found that hospital stays for ketoacidosis were reduced among a group of people who attended diabetes education classes.
    Managing Diabetic Ketoacidosis
    If think you may have ketoacidosis, it is essential to contact your doctor or get to the emergency room immediately.
    "If we can catch it early, with medicine and IV fluids, we can stop the diabetic ketoacidosis from progressing to severe dehydration," says Cohen. "Diabetic ketoacidosis, if severe and not treated aggressively, has about a 5 percent death rate, so you really want to get a handle on it rapidly."
    Remember that regularly monitoring your blood glucose levels, performing urine ketone tests as recommended, and recognizing symptoms that might indicate your ketone levels are high is the best approach to reducing your risk of diabetic ketoacidosis.

    I recently had a friend that got DKA she only had ketones for a day and was bring violently sick she couldn't test for ketones as her strips were left at her uni campus and went home to visit her family for the weekend her mum was just about to leave to go get the strips when she said I don't feel well take me to hospital betime she got to hospital ( which is a 10 min drive from where she lives) her vains had short down and the only vain left was the one to her heart they had to cut her throat open to put in an insulin drip immediately and was put in intensive care her family was told she might not make it and that was from having ketone symptoms for just a few hours / day at the most .. This has woken me up to life alot Snd made me realise what can happen if you don't look after yourself
