Why we ask about insulin

We believe that many people with type 2 diabetes who have progressed to taking insulin may be able to reduce their dosage or discontinue it altogether as a result of following a lower-carb eating plan. However, adjusting insulin dosage when changes are made to the diet requires close monitoring that we are unable to offer. For this reason, we unfortunately do not recommend the ETBD program for people who take insulin at this time.

There are, however, practitioners who offer individualised help in this situation, which may be more suited to your needs. Please email us if you would like more details.
