This is so huge that I’m beginning to believe that what Tim “Tatertot” Steele and I have been promoting in therms of Resistant Starch—via nearly 50 posts and thousands of comments since last April—may constitute nothing short of a revolution for 300 million diabetics worldwide, 30 million in the US. Of course, if it works for diabetics, you don’t even need to ask whether it’s beneficial for virtually everyone in terms of blood glucose stability alone.
Steve Cooksey, long time friend and Type 2, went kicking and screaming into his own test that will be reported on soon. But, after seeing his initial results, induced some other diabetics to try. The first, Allison Herschede, is a lifelong Type 1. She has an insulin pump and continuous glucose monitoring that captures the data.
Let me just punch line it for you. Here’s her typical recent data over a day, with the green zone being a normal range of 65-120 mg/dl. The pump provides baseline insulin, and she has to dose depending upon meal composition.
Here’s what happened after she began supplementing with resistant starch via potato starch.
Please do all diabetics and favor and pass this and Steve’s post far and wide.
