Can you do JUDDD with diabetes? And low carb?

I'm mostly concerned about the low calorie days. Not so much from hunger, but from blood sugar concerns.

if you are taking any diabetes medications other than Metformin, it's incredibly hard to dose them properly when your carb and calories are very uneven. it would be super easy to get dangerously low readings on down days and too high on up's. I am sure many with less serious diabetes do ok.
Often I don't come back to read threads where I've posted. If you want me to see something, please send me a private message. Thanks!

WOE: JUDDD Maintenance.
Start Date: 2011
We have had people with diabetes follow JUDDD. It doesn't work for some. For others, like Carly, who had type 2 diabetes and injected insulin, she's experienced reversal, doesn't use any medication now. She summarises her experience in post 5: http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/ju...-diabetes.html

Deedee likewise has diabetes (same thread) and is following the JUDDD schedule.

We have several people using JUDDD as a schedule for their low-carb WOE (Pami is one).

I follow a modified ketogenic WOE within a JUDDD schedule for migraine control.

I'd agree with RavenRose, I doubt anyone could predict how you'd respond to lower calorie DD, particularly if there's medication involved. As a man, you would probably have a more generous DD allowance than the rest of us do. Several JUDDDers who have a portfolio of conditions which include hypoglycaemia have opted for higher DD and this works for them (Monica). We tend to find that long as there is at least a 1000kcal spread between your DD and UD, this can be enough to trigger the gene upregulation and down regulation that the JUDDD schedule is intended to activate.

Some JUDDDers with more personal experience should be able to comment when they see your post.

Yes, TY.

I went and looked around on the internet and found that this would be a hard choice for me because of diabetes.... That is sad, because I think I could easily handle it f not for blood sugar concerns.

If you see a reversal or improvement of your diabetes after losing weight while continuing to follow low carb, JUDDD may be a possibility for maintenance once you see what your medication needs are.

I have followed JUDD for past three weeks. I am a diabetic and take a new medicine called Janumet. This is a combination of Januiva and Metformin. I have had no problems with maintaining excellent #s.

I am a diabetic and have been following JUDDD for over a week now. I too read it was not a good choice for diabetics, but I am doing it anyway. I am on the Vgo insulin pump. (new for type 2s) My numbers are excellent, and much improved. I have had to bolus less and less, and I think my insulin resistance is improving. The JUDDD program supposedly helps insulin resistance, so in the long run, I feel like its worth the extra care to manage the ups and downs for the long term improvement. I am a rebel tho, so I would say talk to your doctor and see what they say. Mine actually encouraged me to do Intermittent Fasting, because of the IR improvement.
