    Welcome to MDA! I have type 1 diabetes. What a coincidence... I've also had it for 28 years.

    It really depends as everyone is different. I tried VLC but it did not work for me, my blood sugars ran higher on less carbs.

    How active are you? Are you looking to lose weight along with better blood sugar control? Do you have any thyroid ills? That will make a difference in the what the best approach will be for you.

    Steve Parker, MD, in the first link is a pretty smart guy. I've turned a couple of T1D people on to the diabetic Mediterranean diet and they seem to love it. Good luck!

    You should get a book called Dr. Bernstein's Diabetes Solution. He is a physician with T1D who has had normal blood sugars for decades using similar methods.
