“Sebastian was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in December 2014. After over 1 year of horrible blood sugar rollercoasters, his mom was excited when she learned about the Law of Small Numbers: Fewer Carbs don’t cause blood sugars to rise as much, require less insulin, which in turn reduces the risk of hypoglycemia. It made so much sense!
He’s been eating low carb high protein ever since, not complaining once: Sebastian prefers that he doesn’t have to think about diabetes as much and can just focus on having fun, be it at the beach, with his friends, at middle school or elsewhere. He has good grades, is growing steadily and can’t wait to surpass his mother in height in a year or so!”
