I have a 5 year old Type 1 diagnosed in January 2007 who is still honeymooning. I’m currently reading Dr. Bernstein’s Diabetes Solution and finding that it is very restricting in carbs. I’m not sure I can implement this program with my 5 year old although he does make a pretty persuasive case for doing so.
Has anyone in this network tried using this diet with a child and been successful? I’ve heard that it is not good to limit carbs in a growing child.
Also, the book states that you can pretty much postpone ending the honeymoon period indefinitely and I’m trying to find out how this is possible and if it is true. He does not go into a lot of detail about how in the book.
Any insights would be great.
