In this video, I’m going to answer another question from one of my viewers: can type-1 diabetics do prolonged fasting?

The focus of type-1 diabetics is to keep their glucose level under control. This is important. However, it’s also important to keep an eye on your level of insulin.

The number of carbs you eat determines the amount of insulin you need. So if you consume lots of carbs, you have to use a lot of insulin.

Insulin takes excess glucose and starts to store it throughout the body.

Taking too much insulin is just as bad as having too much glucose. Fasting will help lower the amount of insulin that you need.

Many type-1 diabetics have something called double diabetes. This is a situation where your pancreas isn’t able to produce insulin (type-1), and your cells are also resistant to insulin (type-2). This means that taking insulin doesn’t always work—your insulin receptors don’t absorb the insulin you inject.

Doing fasting and healthy keto helps prevent insulin resistance.

While you fast, it’s important to also take nutrients, including:
• Electrolytes
• B-vitamins
• Trace minerals
• Vitamin C
• Vitamin E
