  • You nailed it Dr. Kushner, thank you for all you do. Does anybody know a foundation or clinic doing research on LCFF and Type 1 Diabetes where one can donate and help do more research?

  • This is so useful! Do you have any advice for finding out who funded the study, so we can avoid looking at industry funded studies?

  • Many people start the new year with a resolution to lose weight. What do you think about fad diets? Let us know in the comments below and thanks for watching!

  • Thank you so much! This is all such good information that people who are interested in nutrition but don’t have a degree in the sciences.:D

  • As a type one I have tried a number of approaches from Bernstein, to Paleo, to Keto and now Carnivore. Each change lowered my A1C and allowed me to use less insulin. Currently with being 98% carnivore my A1C is 5-6 using 10units of long/day and some days maybe 1 or 2 units of rapid. Check out Dr. Csaba Toth’s work and the FB group Principia Carnivora. All labs are great, eyes have improved and have lost over 140lbs in last fours years. Again best lab #’s and weight loss came from the switch to a carnivore diet.

  • Keto/VLC Dr Ken Berry and Dr Bernstein changed and saved my life!!! On the horrible roller coaster for too many years! Chased everything from vegan, raw vegan, vegetarian, high carb low fat… all with absolutely no success!!! Then I found low carb and my life changed!

  • Great to see Kushner publicizing Richard Bernstein & the Type 1 Grit community on facebook. But what a pity to think there are only 2500 members. So many type 1s out there being exterminated by misinformation.

    I found that Jake Kushner did ok in terms of Physiological Literacy, but as it is often the case, his most useful knowledge in treating diabetes come from the Internet forums, low carb activists and smart patients. And Jake Kushner’s knowledge is incomplete. Some important elements of modern understanding of diabetes were never mentioned by Kushner and are apparently not a part of his treatment approach.In the podcast, Jake Kushner mentioned that he is an advisor to a company which develops a new drug, Sotagliflozin. Peter Attia commented on the drug’s potential. I decided to look into the drug since I did some reading on the subject. The target of the drug raised a lot of questions. It may be useful to patients with diabetes to do some reading on their own and to form their own opinion on the drug that some doctors may want to prescribe them.

  • Dr. Bernstein is himself a T1D. And he just turned 84. I follow his protocol. Average glucose is 84.8 with a standard deviation of 13.8. My A1C is 4.9%. I eat less than 20 grams of carbs per day. There is no other way in my opinion. Compliance is probably a huge issue, but for those who are willing to make the sacrifice, it is possible to have normal blood sugar as a T1D.
