[IP] low carb/no insulin "therapy" for type 1

I think your friend is confused.  Before the discovery of insulin the
therapy was, as you described, a very low carb diet - otherwise known as the
starvation diet.  Some patients were able to survive several years doing
this.  One young man actually survived 6 years.  However, these patients
were skeletal and horribly weak.  They did not lead normal lives.  To
survive you must feed your cells and to feed your cells you must have
insulin.  I think this is dangerous misinformation to spread.
