Ddar Dr. Rosedale
What about the poor diabetics Type I--juvenile onset??. Most of what you advise is directed to Type II.  WE have no insulin so even the smallest amount of carbs will spike the blood sugar. I use Dr. Bernstein's diet as a guideline to eating and I have managed to keep my ACI to around 6.4-6.6, still harmful in your view. I find it very hard to keep to a diet under 60 grams of carbs per day, and certainly not Bernsteins 30!! 
Specifically do you have a diet tailored for Type I's, or do we adapt the Type II diet.  I have had diabetes for 53 years and in 1958 there was no technology like today--i.e. glucometers, pumps and pen syringes. It was all guess work!!  Be well and  much continued success. Mordechai in Jerusalem

    Dear Mordechai,
    Thank you for the compliments to Dr. Ron's work.

    The first question Dr. Ron always asks his type I's is if they have ever had their c-peptide measured? You will be surprised how many said never, and when tested how many were still producing insulin. Dr. Ron said, if you have never had a c-peptide done, then you really should. As far as the diet, we have many type I's that follow the program, you can read about Shelley Schlender at, Shelley worked close with Dr. Ron the moment she was told about being a type I, she is very careful with her diet, and she does not take insulin! Very lucky the Dr Ron caught her right at the start.

    Best of health,

    The Rosedale Team
