Keto Interview with a Type 1 Diabetic: INTERESTING

hey everyone welcome back i have a a guestthat i’m gonna interview today special client actually she works for me and christie is herehi christy hi hey listen the reason i’m bringing you up is because um you had or you may stillhave uh diabetes type 1 and i wanna know a little bit about your narrative so tell us about yourstory okay uh so i have was i led a normal life most of my life you know up until my secondchild my daughter uh during that maternity i was diagnosed with gestational diabetes and um iwas immediately put on insulin because managing it was very difficult with diet it was unmanageablewith diet so they situated me on insulin very quickly and then they gave me the conventional youknow abbreviate your carbs but i was still recommended to eat like 20 to 30 gramsof carbs a snack um so that are actually wasn’t working i was using a great deal of insulin andthen i had my daughter teagan and they just assumed i went back to normal and of courselike i wanted to go back to normal so i just said okay i’m normal and i went back todoing everything that i was doing before i stopped the remedy and substance and then umabout a year after “i probably shouldve” her i started to notice indications like i was losing a lot of heavines iwasn’t really like watching my food either so that didn’t really make sense for me and i was verytired i was urinating often so i just decided one day to check my blood sugars because i hadthe stuff from when i was pregnant and uh when i checked i was like 450 or something like crazy ohmy god so um i immediately knew i was a diabetic and i just assumed that i was a type 2 becausei didn’t know anything about diabetes so when i went to the doctor they too assumed thatbecause my mommy and my daddy and in their own families so um that’s what they diagnosed me with with type2 diabetes and they gave me metformin and told me to lower my diet which um i did i was very strictlow carb the way i thought i should be doing it um and nothing was you know i was still high andthen you know fast forward a pair months we go off the grid so we’re traveling in our rv it’svery hard to keep fresh fruits and veggies so um i various kinds of just started not helping i i waslike well my mommy and my grandma are alive so who attends you know i didn’t i didn’t really thinkso i just stopped controlling it basically i would every once in a while check my blood sugars andi was high and i would treat it with some insulin it was just a very dangerous you know thing that iwas doing and then um we terminated down in missouri and i started noticing like the frequent urinationthe um i was always tired i was also starting to not be able to feel my foot and my handmy tongue i was having recognizes in my noses so i realized it was really important to get seriousabout it and i started doing some research and um i obtained keto as a way to switch the type2. So i thought about it but i didn’t do it you know and then i went to the doctor they saidyour a1c is 10 and a half you need to start using insulin and that’s when i left that appointment iwas like i knew insulin shapes you gain weight and that’s always been something i’ve been concernedabout so at that point i said i’m going to do something different and i detected like soyou your a1c was 10 10 detail something okay yeah okay because normal advantage should be like fivepoint five yeah okay right right it was very very high and uh that’s when they were like we’ve gotto do meal time insulin and all of this and i was like no no you know i’m too young i don’t want todo that so i started to do the healthy keto and doing more research i spotted physicians like dr youdr berg and then dr fung on the type 2 and how if you reform what you’re eating and intermittentfast you can reduce that so i was super provoked i was ready to do it my husband got on boardwith me and um then i stopped doing the insulin because i thought i checked with my doctor theysaid you are definitely a character 2 so go ahead and give it a try so i did that and um then ialso cheated a little so i got really into ketosis and then i did i departed and sawsome friends in st louis and started to i for that one meal i just went overboard so i waslike in the 500 s after that dinner and i never came back down and i terminated up going into dka becausei was in st louis without my insulin and dka oh is diabetic ketoacidosis yeah so that’s asituation where you have this very very high blood sugar and very low insulin because you’renot make it and your ph becomes very acidic it can be very dangerous and that never occursunless you’re you have type one or you have it’s just not you’re not ascertaining your bloodsugars but go ahead right and my i did end up um i went to the emergency room because i moved a fewdays thinking i had the flu and then i got to the point where i was unable to breathe and and that’swhen i went to the emergency room and they uh in the hospital they employed me in the icu and in thehospital they were trying to give me insulin and i was like no i don’t want that material like idon’t need it i’m a character 2. And they were like looking at me i’m 91 pounds and they’re like nolike your blood sugars are acces too high for you being in a fasting nation you need insulin and theycame and they told me you’re a sort 1 diabetic we’re going to time all the tests to confirmthat but that’s our idea so that was like a really hard thing to process um and thenwhen i i left the hospital i still knew i was going to do low-grade carb because i didn’t wantto be doing a good deal of insulin and um so that’s just what i’ve been doing so within it within sixmonths my a1c went from 10 and a half to 6.3 and then uh by the year i was at 5.5 and ithink when i go i’m gonna go in february again i’ll probably be a little higher because likesome things have happened stress i did like fall off a little bit and i permit things in you knowsometimes when i shouldn’t so i do feel my a1c is probably closer to six now um but i’m jumpingback in i you know things have ended down with the stress actually precisely a you know the stressis my my mummy uh she’s a kind two uh but we think maybe she might be a type one but we you know butshe’s a nature two and not succeeding her blood sugar so she actually was encountered subconscious in a comaand she was in that mood for quite some time so that really like at that moment emphasized meout and i did some cheating but now it’s kind of really like seeing her recovery how slow it isshe’s needing a lot of assistance a lot of therapy and she needs beings to care for her she’s beenstuck in the hospital where they’re not succeeding her diabetes well at all which is stirring itworse and it merely reminded me like why i’m doing what i’m doing i don’t want to do thatto their own families i don’t want to do that to myself so when i’m doing low-grade carb i get touse such little sums of insulin that concern is really not present you know if i do golow it’s very easily redressed so um that’s you know that’s kind of my narration and why i’m doing iti started an instagram sheet and then time meeting this task because you know nobody wants to hear youtalk about keto but i get to do it all day long you know so i just feel so ordained because you didthat’s the other part my kidneys were miscarrying and they wanted to leant me on remedy and i knewbased on like the videos i’d watched from you you know stimulating sure i have plenty of potassiumin my food that i would be able to protect my kidneys and reverse it and i and now my kidneyfunction is completely normal wow i’m happy with this and i don’t have anything that is so awesomeso uh what christy does uh she’s actually one of my keto consultants so she helps people on thephone she answer questions and you have a lot of personal experience so that is so valuablequestion i have a couple questions number one when you are pregnant did you just have regularcarbo meals what did you gobble while you’re pregnant with the prompt of thiswhole in the beginning i just yeah in the beginning i was just eating normalwhat was that like carbo nutrient i mean fast food i wasn’t a big cooker i and i was very tired withthat gestation so and i think that might have been because also i got diagnosed during that pregnancywith hypothyroidism or the hashimoto’s so um i was really tired and then i got really sick very soi was very lazy i you know it was frozen pizzas taco buzzer you know fast food it was not healthy atall but then when they told me about the diabetes i did try very hard but i was doing things liketoast and peanut butter thinking that was good for me and it wasn’t wow this this is what so so i’mso interested in creating more videos on what to eat while you’re pregnant because so many womenthey don’t think it’s a big deal but oh my gosh it can be a huge deal um not just for yourself butyou know you’re carrying a newborn um so so presently right now um you still have to take insulinbut you’re not taking as much to control things oh my gosh it’s so little yes i signify i do and wheni’m really get into it and i’m adding workouts i get down to i mean total and this is longlasting and meal time insulin i’m doing like at max six parts a day so um that’s like so littleyeah and when you think about all the money that you’re saving you know and the you’re also savingyourself from further state complications because you know industrial size quantities of insulin arenot good for our bodies whether you’re a type one or not you know we we may need it but wedon’t need that much though right and so this is another good point i want to mention isthe um the complications of high-pitched blood glucose are various kinds of similar to the complications of highlevels of insulin so and the more carbs you have the more insulin you have to take so why even gothat attitude because the high-pitched insulin is going to create some problems extremely and and also whereis the carbs becoming when you take insulin are they just evaporating now they’re actually being shovedin different places in your torso and converted to different things um what what would you say thata ordinary form 1 diabetic how much insulin are they taking per period do you have any idea that is why i would umyeah because i follow some people on instagram and i i make and just going from what i was takingbefore i changed my diet and then even currently if i do have a pizza pizza um you know i have totake 20 gangs of mealtime insulin and that still doesn’t cros it or it it’s too much and then ihave a low that’s scary you are well aware so um i would say like they would be doing 50 plus parts a dayand it probably just increases over time because uh you know the insulin resistance is takingplace you know and then it’s funny because my doc one of my the nutritionist uh at my doctor’soffice when i croaked i was like well my a1c is 5. 5 because she was trying to you know fix my diet andi was like i got it you know i know what to eat and i was like my a1c is 5. 5 and she was like ohwell that will probably creep up over epoch because your pancreas is gonna stop working even more andi’m like no it’s pretty much done labouring you know like this is this is if it goes up it’s becauseof my food and i know i’m ready for it i’m gonna be disappointed in myself but i know it’s goneup a little bit because of that reporting period and i just want to add the reason not cheatingis is so important it’s not just that like okay yes in a moment my blood sugar was 300. It washard to erase that cheat you know i i did it in one moment fantasizing oh i’m just gonna munch whatever iwant right now because i’m so emphasized and then i wanted to do it the next day and then i wanted todo it the next day and it’s so hard to break that so it’s like formerly you get that force i wasat 5.5 like i i don’t think i’ll go back again regardless of my stress because it’s not worth itlike it just takes so long and like you said the sugar doesn’t merely evaporate it gets settled placesand it takes me like a week to see that perfectly out of my body even when i’m eating healthful myblood sugars are higher because i’m getting rid of all the other the carbohydrate that i feed you know thatit stuffed in my liver and so yeah you know that’s why i always i always tell people it’s actuallygood to go off the program only only to experience this because that space you know you can actuallyhave judgment so no one’s like telling you you have to do this but you you know how yourbody drudgeries you know if i actually go off the program it’s not going to be off for a couplehours you’re talking about days yeah simply a little bit and this is also for the average personthat’s trying to lose weight so i think for me i was a junk food junkie in my 20 s i’m 30 nowso that good that’s good so what the hell happened is um i uh i was so bad but it made me it made me times tochange my spaces because i had to keep suffering this agonizing side effects and ramifications tofinally says okay that’s it i’m going to actually have discipline now but i think some some peopleyou know they have to learn on their own and then they have this alter of like you know whatokay i’m going to do it now for real so and you can’t really tell people that you can encouragethem but they have to kind of go through this thing i’m like okay go off the program see how youdo and then exactly why is it taking so long to get back on the way well yeah it’s an addictionit really is an addiction and and it like poppings in your thought you know like you have it one day andthe next day now you’re like oh i want that again and i just wanted to triumph you know and it really isit’s a craving so i’m here i am thinking like just seeing everything that’s going on with my mommy likefirsthand i’ve heard you know i’ve heard parties experience that but dealing with it myself andseeing how frustrating it is right when i was in dka i had the ability to tell them what i wantedbut she can’t you know she’s unable to communicate how to manage her diabetes not that she was doingit immense you know plainly right but um you know now that i’m involved i’m gonna try to helpher and i just feel like i got there too late but this is where we are and it actually hasn’topened my sees to say okay the misleads are not good anymore like i’m done i don’t want to doit anymore i don’t and and i’ve been feeling immense so i’m gonna i’m seeing the course so i’mcurious um when i broke my shoulder demolished it shattered it i had to go to the hospitalto get surgery so uh so i get in there and then i’m like wait a second i didn’t bring myfood with me and of course they i wake up and they have crackers jello pudding and i’m askingfor some protein or something and they’re like looking at me strange now i’m curious ifyou’re a diabetic and you’re in the hospital um is there any any switching of anything other thanthe same thing it’s so bad dr berg okay because for the diabetic nutrition right they knew i wasa diabetic they made me biscuits and gravy and i was i said to the guy when he was handingit to me i said this is not low-pitched carb and i was like i just want eggs with cheese and bacon likethat’s all i requirement i don’t want the cookies in the gravy and he’s like oh well the biscuits examine andthey’re only three grams of carb i was like what world are you living in right now you know likeno merely i don’t know who typed this sticker up but no i’m going to tell you right now doctor likethis is not three grams of carbs this is like 50 or 60 grams of carbs and it’s gonna spike me i’mnot dining it and um i had to tell them but still with my momma she was subconscious they were justgiving her this feeding tube which you know that stuff is terrible and then when she did starteating they were giving her pancakes spaghetti toast bagels and no matter what i said to them onthe phone they just obstructed doing it and she ceased up with serious lows in the hospital going low-grade within the hospital’s hair how is that even possible and i am aware and they’re too dosing her afterher dinner so they’re chasing the high-pitched which is very dangerous because the blood sugar willlower on its own you know after it conjures so it’s just a highly d it seems so contradictoryyou’re supposed to be there and they’re supposed to care for you and you can’t trust that anymoreyou have to be able to advocate for yourself incredible so um anyway i wanted to say one lastthing um and for those of you that are watching you obviously need to um we can actually giveyou the right devouring strategy so i’ll situated a tie-in down below and um so this is what i wanted totell you i stumbled on your blog which is a fascinating blog it’s actually off it’s calledoff the grid what off the grid street and uh so you basically you have you do videos of likeyou guys are living i guess it’s a farm isn’t it well we’re trying to start it you know we’retrying it’s very slow going again this job has been such a approbation for our family because idon’t have to leave the home to do my job so that’s helping a good deal with the progress so rightnow we’re focusing on building our insignificant house um we will get some more chickens and we do wantour own raise we want to be able to conclude our own menu and um be self-sustainable that’s our goalso it’s been slow going sometimes it gets a little you know defeating so but we’re still pushingforward and i’m so excited that you investigated our video that’s so cool oh yeah i was watching all sortsof videos so for those of you watching i want you to go to that her blog right now made a join downbelow and agree
