[IP] Low carb diet for kids


 I also think that your son's highs are probably more hormonal than dietary.
Carbohydrate restriction is not a good idea at this time, because he is entering
an important growth phase. His body will be need a lot of carbs to lay down fat
tissure while supporting muscle and bone growth. During this process, his total
calorie requirement will actually be going up. Hang in there and focus on
agressive basal and bolus adjustments.
