Wendy Knapp Pogozelski is a Chemistry professor at State University of New York. After she was diagnosed with LADA (latent onset diabetes of adulthood), she researched the available diabetes diets and achieved good blood sugar control on a carbohydrate-restricted diet and just seven units of insulin a day.
Then she saw a dietitian who convinced her to follow conventional wisdom and increase carbs to at least 130 grams daily.
The result was that my HbA1c rose above 7 percent. My blood sugar levels were frequently in the 200 to 300 mg/dl range (far above the normal level of about 85 mg/dl), even when I supplemented with extra insulin. My former dose of seven units of insulin per day increased to 30 units per day.
I’m not sure what she did after that.
