Autoimmune Protocol (AIP)


#1

Anyone on here had success with AIP and blood sugar control?

Note* (I am NOT attempting a cure so please no judgmental comments, you can take those somewhere else.)


#2

What is AIP?


#3

See the post title – autoimmune protocol.


#4

My guess is it refers to this

That’s it @MM1 thank you.

It sounds promising. There was a tiny study conducted at Scripps in San Diego. They achieved a 78% remission rate with IBD patients who continued their drugs as prescribed by their doctors. They are now crowd funding to test Hashimoto’s.

I firmly believe food can help heal. My enlarged thyroid and nodules (15 years) went to normal after going gluten free when I was diagnosed with celiac disease. I have Hashi’s and was taking hormone replacement (standard treatment). I also went mostly grain free and LCHF. I focus on avoiding processed foods.

I am a TD2.

It can not cause any harm, in my non-medical opinion. :blush:

Great points @Cyclinglady, my mother had an autoimmune disease which was not diabetes. I’m the only one in my family that was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes unfortunately. I’ve noticed upon slowly removing things like eggs, dairy, etc. that I can tell a drastic improvement in blood sugar levels.

Keep an eye out for celiac disease as it is commonly linked to TD1 and can develop at any age.

Autoimmune disorders run like crazy on both sides of my family. I am currently dealing with three: celiac disease, Autoimmune Gastritis, and Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. I am alway watching to see if my TD2 will develop into TD1. By managing all three with a healthy diet and hormone replacement (no processed foods, gluten free, LCHF, etc.), I am doing pretty well. I also stay very active for a person of my age. Advocating for my own health has helped me immensely as has advocating for others. :blush:

I’ll keep you updated on my progress. I’m slowly cutting back on caffeine and alcohol before I attempt this as a hungry lady without caffeine or alcohol is deadly. :rofl:
