Apr 11, 2018

In this show we talk to the expert who is part of one of the biggest diabetes management and reversal communities in the world. We cover the challenges faced by being type 1 diabetic and successful management of this condition, especially in the light of newer research and evidence.

Bio: Dr. Ian Lake is a GP locum in Gloucestershire, UK.  He has had a long term interest in preventive medicine. Having Type 1 Diabetes himself, he eventually discovered and was strongly influenced by Richard Bernstein's Diabetes Solution book. He adopted a ketogenic lifestyle 4 years ago and found it was transformative regarding his health and wellbeing. He is keen to spread his knowledge to all with Type 1 so that they are aware of alternatives to the conventional diet. Like seemingly everyone else on a low carb lifestyle he has written a blog on running and Type 1 diabetes. ( )This was primarily to show that carbohydrate is not essential in type 1 diabetes, and ended up demonstrating that 'extreme diabetes' was not eliminating carbs and fasting but following conventional advice.
