What is 1,5 diabetes?
It is a form of diabetes also called Latent autoimmune diabetes in adults (LADA) and is defined as initially non-insulin requiring diabetes diagnosed in people over 30 years with antibodies to GAD – glutamic acid decarboxylase. People with LADA often do not need insulin for several months, up to a year and are therefore often misdiagnosed with type 2 diabetes. This type of diabetes makes up about 6-10% of diabetes cases and 25% of those diagnosed younger than 35 years.
How does eating sweets on keto work?
It took me a while to fully understand how I can eat sweets on keto, because I really did not want to eat sugar. And when I checked the nutritional values of sweeteners such as erythritol, I read:
100g sweetener = 100g carbs
Just like sugar I though, so no benefits for a diabetic 🤷🏽♀️
Not quite! These carbs are metabolised differently than sugar and have a glycemic index of 0.
What does this mean for carb counting?
