Yes. Expect big reductions in your required insulin dosages, even if you don't reduce your carb intake. Watch out for hypoglycemia.

You are going to have to adjust your insulin doses carefully according to what you are eating. Find a doctor who will work with you on this--some doctors really get it and some doctors are so afraid of hypos that they warn you against it.

REQUIRED READING: Dr. Bernstein's Diabetic Solution. It's not necessarily a Paleo book, but you can use the principles in the book with your Paleo eating.
