    • Hello @tallulabell. You should check out some resources from Dr. Bernstein, who is a Type I diabetic still practicing in his 80s. His book is "The Diabetic Solution." Here's a video where Dr. Bernstein answers the question "Can a diabetic extend the honeymoon period?". He mentions one patient who extended it 30 years... https://www.facebook.com/Type1Grit/videos/can-a-diabetic-extend-the-honeymoon-period/2334978490095411/ Here is also a couple of Dr. Baker's interviews with other thriving Type I diabetics. https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/meatrx/id1495714614?i=1000627315073 https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/meatrx/id1495714614?i=1000607886418   A friend named Karen provided these links and says "Wish your friend blessings and success on managing this tough condition from me. 💕"  
    • I know of several people who were able to wean themselves off of Omeprazole. Some suggest weaning off of it slowly, gradually lowering your dosage. Others have also found it beneficial to dilute apple cider vinegar and water and drink it, similar to what you are doing. Another recommendation is to stop consuming food several hours before bedtime. You don't want to lie down with contents still processing in your stomach. And then another tip is to take a couple bricks put them under the headposts of your bed so that your head is elevated. You might even do 2 sets of bricks. Combine these tips with your carnivore diet and you could be well on your way to getting rid of your refux problems. I would suspect that if you were heavily dependent on the omeprazole before and now you are able to take it less often, that this is indeed a good sign. But I personally am not qualified to give you a definite answer. Thanks for visiting. You'll need to register if you want to continue the conversation 🙂

      Hi Folks. I'm a new guy just looking around, but thought I would run this question by and see if anyone has had a similar experience. I am in my fifth week of carnivore and I am generally pleased with my results, to this point. I have lost about 12 pounds. I'm still drinking coffee, but have cut back from a pot a day to one or two cups per day. My only real problem is reflux, which I have had for many years. I have been taking over-the-counter omeprazole every day and have only recently educated myself to the point that I now know that I have to stop taking it if I am ever going to get an actual cure.  With the help of a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar before eating, I am now able to get by without the omeprazole or antacids for 2-3 days at a time. I expect to be off of it completely, soon.  I'm wondering if this is a sign that my stomach acid is getting properly regulated and if my esophagus is starting to heal, or if I will be battling this problem for a long time.
    • Welcome Tallal. I don't think that you must eat organ meats. However, I do know that liver is chock full of vitamins and minerals. It's like nature's super multivitamin, and just a couple ounces every few days is enough to reap the benefits. Even with Type I Diabetes, you can have a near normal A1C. You need to keep doing what you are doing as far as staying as zero carb as possible. When you only eat ruminant meats, that's often referred to as The Lion Diet - a term coined by Mikhaila Peterson, daughter of Jordan Peterson, both of whom also consume only beef and other ruminants. The closer you get down to a normal A1C, the less damage you are doing to your body. I am going to have to do some research about the possibility of extending the honeymoon phase, but it seems to me that a proper diet will definitely help. It's the one thing you can do outside of taking medications. While Type I cannot be cured or reversed, it can be managed and with proper diet you can lower the amount of medications or injections needed. My favorite resource is Dr. Ken Berry MD. He has several videos on both Type I and Type II Diabetes. Here's a link for you... https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=dr+berry+type+1+diabetes+
    • Hello all, I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes on January 2023. I am in something called my honeymoon phase and have started an 80% fat/20% protein calories carnivore diet 5 days ago. I am only eating ground beef (20% fat). I heard someone say that type 1 diabetics have to worry more since they don't have some vitamins and must eat organ meats. I was wondering, could y'all be kind enough to point me to any resources you know of successful type 1 diabetes honeymoon period extending? And what protocols they followed? Honestly would be so so grateful. Please help me change my life!
