Re: [IP] protein and insulin



 Hundreds of millions wasted in DCCT demonstrated that Joslin was correct in his
approach. Pumps are ok but when will the loop get closed?

Subject: Re: [IP] protein and insulin

David said
":Insulin is not required to digest anything. However, much protein is 
actually
converted into glucose (Joslin's 1959 edition of his diabetic manual says 58
percent if memory serves) such that insulin is required for its metabolism."

David, I wouldn't be convinced that advice from Joslin in 1959 is going to 
be
acurate in terms of dealng with Diabetes/ iIsulin Pumps and occasional large
amounts of Protein.

What you are hearing is real life individual experiences with BGs after 
consuming
large amounts of protein.  Check the recommended dietary advice for T1's in 
1959
and Insulin regime's 45+ years ago.  There were no pumps; no fast
acting analogue insulins and certainly  a very restricted dietary regime ...
