Caveman Mark Trying Paleo Lifestyle for Type 1 Diabetes

Paleobetic is a new blog by a 30-year-old man, Mark, with type 1 diabetes.  At the start of November, 2011, he started the paleo lifestyle and diet, probably in the fashion of Robb Wolf.  He’s starting CrossFit, too.  It’s an open-ended N=1 experiment.

Since I’m in the U.S., I think of blood sugar in mg/dl rather than mmol/l.  Thankfully, Mark often includes his blood sugars in both values.  He’s on an insulin pump and does basal/bolus dosing of insulin.

You may want to follow Mark’s progress.

  1. It’s nice to have found this site! I, too, am a 30-year-old type 1 diabetic who recently went paleo. I have 3 kids and I’m trying to lose weight while tackling my hypothyroidism. I just bought Balanced Bites new book Practical Paleo and I’m trying the Thyroid Meal Plan.
    Anyway, I’m blogging about it too over at

    Paleobetic is such a clever name!

    Also, thank you so much for this site, it’s a really great resource!
