Um, as a type 1 diabetic I can most definitely say that fat would not trigger an insulin response! I have to inject my insulin before I eat. If I eat pasta I will need to take maybe as much as 25 units of insulin. If I eat a meal of fat and protein I would only have to take 3 units! Why would the body release insulin for something that doesn't raise blood glucose levels? Don't make the slightest bit of sense. I have never had to inject because I ate butter.
