The question then arises: what do people with Type 2 Diabetes do to get their blood glucose within normal range, if they are resistant to insulin? Here is where the beauty of Therapeutic Carbohydrate Restriction enters. When you minimize carbohydrates, your body adapts to burning fat for fuel, and your blood glucose will come down. You may also want to ask your doctor: “ why are you giving me insulin when my body is resistant to insulin?” Chances are he has never really considered this because they usually focus on medication, not nutrition intervention. Insulin was discovered in 1922 by Dr. Frederick Banting and is now widely prescribed. Before that low carb eating was the only way to regulate high blood sugar for people with Diabetes.
