The Keto Diet and Diabetes

The ketogenic diet, also known as the "keto diet," is a high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet that has been claimed to have several health benefits, including weight loss and improved blood sugar control in people with diabetes.


According to a review published in Nutrition & Metabolism, the keto diet may be an effective treatment for type 2 diabetes, as it can lead to significant reductions in blood sugar levels and medication use (





It is important to note that the keto diet should be followed under the guidance of a healthcare provider or a registered dietitian, as it may not be suitable for everyone, particularly those with type 1 diabetes or certain other medical conditions.


Additionally, it is important to monitor blood sugar levels closely while following the keto diet and to consult with a healthcare provider if there are any concerns.
