Dr Ian Lake
Medical Officer, Type 1 Diabetes,
Dr. Ian Lake is a GP locum in Gloucestershire. He has had a long term interest in preventive medicine. Having Type 1 Diabetes himself, he eventually discovered and was strongly influenced by Richard Bernstein’s Diabetes Solution book. He is a founder member of the Public Health Collaboration, which is a charity set up to promote a real food lifestyle. He has collaborated with Diabetes Digital Media in the Type 1 Program, which is a digital platform to enable people with type 1 diabetes to safely transition to lowered carbohydrate diets.
Like seemingly everyone with type 1 on a low carb lifestyle he has written a blog on running and Type 1 diabetes (www.type1keto.com). This was primarily to explore the potential of nutritional ketosis during exercise in Type 1 diabetes. He recently completed a 5 week run covering over 700 miles on 9% carbs with no issues whatsoever.
