type 1 to be exact. my niece has it. i have read about diet cures but not sure if they apply to type 1. her family has not done a whole lot in terms of changing their diet to help her. now she just has to count all her carbs, but no one else does and they still eat out a lot. it's sad because you know she wants to eat what everyone else is but cant because most of what they eat has lots of carbs. if i found a book or other resource explaning the science of curing diabeties, or really limiting the amount of insulin she needs, i know he parents would take interest. and maybe they would overhaul the whole families eating habits, as her parents are way overweight.
