The current type 1 diabetes diet is not working. Despite all of the technology available, in England fewer than 10% of people with Type 1 diabetes achieve the recommended target.
Contrast this with 90% who reach the target on a keto diet. This webinar explains how a keto lifestyle works, and introducers the principles of managing insulin with a reduced carb diet.
Expected Learning Outcomes
– Insulin actions and factors that make conventional management so difficult.
– Metabolism of macronutrients
– Transitioning to a low carb lifestyle.
This webinar is equivalent to 1 CPD credit
About the Speaker: Dr Ian Lake
I am a GP by training and currently working in diabetes education and weight management. I was diagnosed with LADA Type 1 Diabetes, aged 36. I managed it with a usual care approach for the first 20 years and changed to a very low carb lifestyle five years ago. It had such dramatic results that I decided to dedicate my time to get the information about low carbohydrate lifestyles to those with Type 1 themselves. My website for patient and Healthcare Professional information is www.type1keto.com
I am keen to explore areas of uncertainty in Type 1 management and last year ran 100 miles in 5 days with zero calories. The outcome can be found on www.zerofive100.com. I am a founder member of The Public Health Collaboration www.phcuk.org.uk, which is a charity dedicated to promoting a real food lifestyle for health.
