Conclusion: We opine that the Paleolithic ketogenic diet ensure normal glucose levels and can be maintained on the long-term in those patients with newly diagnosed T1DM with residual insulin secretion. It is important to emphasize, however, that in those patients with long-standing T1DM beta cells might have exhausted and therefore there may be a need for insulin replacement. In these cases, however, the Paleolithic ketogenic diet may be used as an adjunct in an attempt to likely prevent diabetic complications.

The traditional diet of Greenland natives — the Inuit — is held up as an example of how high levels of omega-3 fatty acids can counterbalance the bad health effects of a high-fat diet, but a new study hints that what’s true for the Inuit may not be true for everyone else.
