That’s exactly me…what do we do to fix this as type 2b ?

A phase (4-6 weeks) of keto diet (NOT normal low carbs, it has to be keto, meaning 50-60% of your calories coming from fat) or using exogenous ketones.

Ketones (either made by your body or ingested as a supplement) will increase the conversion of glutamate into GABA.
