Are there any Type 1 diabetics doing intermittent fasting? If so could you please explain how it's working for you. I have had some success with blood sugar control while fasting. Specifically with using bulletproof coffee. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I've started skipping breakfast on the weekends-last meal is 7pm the night before then dont eat again until 12ish. I've been type 1 for 33 years and this really does work well. I've only started this last 2 weeks but i just have slightly more insulin as your body will be producing glycogen from the liver as it thinks you are running out of sugar and sadly for us Type 1's we can then not "utilise" that bloodsugar and so it tends to creep up. Adjust slowly and carefully but it will even out I agree bloodsugars are better later and I dont feel at all hungry
Yet to try a full 24 hours buy going to attempt this Saturday as i'm busy all day :)

Hi Hannah - I am a type 1 diabetic woman (28 years old, diabetic for 25 years) and have just begun using IF about a month ago. I seem to be having some high blood sugars in the morning when I skip breakfast and don't eat until lunch. I am feeling good other wise and have seen good blood sugars the rest of the day and have lost some weight but am concerned / frustrated with the elevation in blood sugar in the mornings when skipping breakfast. I tried the bulletproof coffee a couple times and didn't love it but am willing to try it again if it helps with morning blood sugars. What have your experiences with IF/ bulletproof coffee been? Interested in hearing your results. Haven't seen that much about type 1 / fasting.
