Here is a rather remarkable story about a man who turned 90 years old. He was diagnosed as a type I diabetic at the age of 5, so he has spent the past 85 years as a type I diabetic. How did he manage his health for so long?
Like Richard Bernstein (who is 77 and was diagnosed as a type I when he was 12), he manages his type I diabetes by following a low carb diet. So not only do low carb diets help with type II diabetes, they can also help type I diabetics live a longer and healthier life.
