Keto or ketogenic diets are thought to lower insulin, a critical hormone that produces an anabolic state inducing weight gain. Keto diets may questionably and indirectly improve cardiometabolic function and induce weight loss.
Ketogenic diets restrict carbohydrate/sugar to cause nutritional ketosis and typically limits carbs to 20-50 grams daily. Restricting carbs induces glycogen depletion and ketone production from the mobilization of fat stored in fat tissue.
Following a keto diet may improve blood sugar levels while also reducing the need for insulin. However, as with most diets, the keto diet is no exception and carries its own risks. Be sure to discuss it with your doctor or the SugarMDs team before making any drastic dietary changes. Especially patients who are on insulin have to be extremely careful and consult with an endocrinologist.
A precursor for type 2 diabetes is being overweight. With that being said, the vast majority of type 2 diabetic patients are overweight. So, a high-fat diet seems a little odd right?

Your doctor or SugarMDs team needs to monitor both blood glucose and ketone levels to make sure that the KETO diet isn’t causing any harmful effects. Once your body adjusts to the ketogenic diet, you still need to see your doctor for testing and any potential medication adjustments.
Even if your symptoms improve, it’s still important to keep up with regular blood glucose monitoring. For type 2 diabetes, the testing frequency varies. Be sure to check with your doctor or SugarMDs team to determine what testing schedule is best for you.
