Why Be In Ketosis? Part V – The Yin & Yang of Glucose (Amylin)

What is the Yin & Yang of glucose control?  It is Glucagon & Amylin.  We talked about glucagon in an earlier post. Today we’ll balance the world of blood sugar with Amylin talk.  Don’t go getting hypoglycemic with all the excitement  . . . !!

  1. I am just starting a keto diet for myself for weight loss and health. My son and husband both have type 1 diabetes. As I’m sure you know, type 1 is an autoimmune disease in which the beta cells don’t produce any insulin. One things that is so confusing to me, is that all of the endocrinologists discouraged carb restriction. I feel like this could be a healthier way for all of us to go, & maybe have more stable blood sugars for them, without always chasing the glucose with insulin & hopefully reducing the highs and lows. I have also wondered how to help my son with satiety, when his body is not producing amylin? Thanks!!
