I've heared of a couple of stories that kids didn't use insulin by going in a grain-free paleo style diet. I am sure that proccessed food and gluten doesn't help your cells. However all those cases after a couple of months go back to insulin. I was following a blog of a parent that managed to keep her daughter off insulin for 8 months with a diet including carbs but not procecced food, gluten or dairy. I don't know whats more dificult to do. I chose insulin and a less restrictive diet.
