In this video, Dr. Berg talks about type 1 diabetes, ketoacidosis and ketogenic diet. Type 1 diabetes is a situation where the cells that make insulin are dysfunctional – no insulin production. Insulin is the key to allow glucose to go into the cell except for the brain, the brain can accept glucose because it is not dependent on insulin. If you can’t use glucose, the body will start breaking down of fat to such a degree that your ketones could get very high. If the ketones are over 9 to 15, that could be very dangerous. The more carbs that you eat, the more insulin you would need but when you do keto(ketogenic diet), the need for insulin goes way down.
It is important to fully understand the ketogenic diet. Here’s some ways to prevent these condition:
1. Make sure you monitor your blood glucose levels to know how much insulin you could take.
2. Do the healthy version of ketosis
3. Ketoacidosis: Start taking electrolytes (potassium, magnesium, sodium)
