Thats interesting. I can tell you for me once I reduced my carbs to 75-100 a day instead of 190 as my diabetic educator wanted I lost 85 lbs and my blood sugars went from the 110s to 70-80s. So I don't believe that protein triggers insulin considerably. I'm no longer on a insulin pump and my labs are great. I am also off all my other medications. My Endo doctor is very happy with me results and told me to continue what I'm doing and forget what my diabetic educator has told me.
