I am aT1D on an insulin pump using CGM and I have about 100 lbs to lose. T2D runs in my family and my endo says my insulin needs definately reflect insulin resistance.
I have tried intermittent fasting (IF) about three times per week over the last month and lost a good amount of fat. My fasting days would start after dinner but I would usually need to stop the fast before dinner again, say after 18-20 hours, because I start to get confused & start to make cognitive errors. My BG was not low.
I am hoping other T1Ds have had experience with IF and even multiple day fasting. I am try to figure out how to go past the 18 hours without having cognitive problems. Also I am wondering if other T1Ds found that their basal needs changed on multiple day fasts. Finally I am wondering if diabetic ketoacidosis DKA was even an issue on multiple day fasting.
