Andrew Koutnik - Type 1 diabetes and an LCHF diet (part 1)

This week on the podcast Mikki brings part one of the two part conversation she had with Dr Andrew Koutnik, PhD, researcher at the Florida Institute for Human and Machine Cognition, about his experience as an adult diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at 18 years, and discovering a lower carbohydrate approach as the best practice management for that. Andrew is a passionate guy, and that comes across in the interview as they discuss the pitfalls of type 1 diabetes management and why matching insulin to carbohydrate load is not the best way to manage blood sugars. This is the first of two podcasts, as we had a long conversation, but I think it will be a thought provoking (and interesting) one to listen to
