I am 68, male, a Type 2 for the last 16 years, on ‘Starch Spread’ and was on medication for managing diabetic.
I switched to LCHF 11 months ago and doing fine.
While continuing with the previous dosage even after changing to LCHF I was becoming fat rapidly. Someone in this forum rightly suspected that ‘it could be due to excess insulin in my system as the dosage required to match the higher carbs intake was continued even after the carbs intakes were reduced by resorting to LCHF’
IT PROVED PERFECT. I REDUCED THE DOSAGE BY HALF AND I GOT BACK TO NORMAL.
This makes me to wonder whether the ‘Obesity’ a relatively new issue world over could be linked to excessive insulin - because most of the adults of child bearing age are on ‘insulin inducing drugs’ and as such at the time of conception or during breast feeding the change of insulin’s getting into the systems of the infants is a reality.
We may be having treatment program just in the opposite direction of diabetic management in the future, if my assumption proved to be correct!
