Jimmy posted a recent interview with type 1 diabetic Dr. Keith R. Runyan, who is a nephrologist and internist.
Dr. Runyan is training for his first Great Floridian Triathlon in October, 2012, so he naturally has a great interest in high level athleticism as it intersects with diabetes.
Dr. Runyan’s current carb consumption level didn’t come up specifically in the interview, but his website indicates he’s on a ketogenic diet heavily influenced by Dr. Richard Bernstein. So I figure he’s eating under 50 grams of digestible carbohydrate daily. He also tried Loren Cordain’s paleo diet; my sense is that it didn’t help much with his diabetes, but perhaps some.
Overall, the interview strongly supports carbohydrate-restricted eating for folks with diabetes. Definitely worth a listen for anyone with diabetes who’s not sold on a very-low-carb diet. If you’re sitting on the fence, at least check out his “About Me” page.
