How the Ketogenic Diet Help People With Type 2 Diabetes

What exactly is the ketogenic diet?

Weight loss is a common goal of type 2 diabetes diets, so it may seem strange that a high-fat diet is an option. The ketogenic (keto) diet, which is high in fat and low in carbs, has the potential to alter how your body stores and uses energy, potentially alleviating diabetes symptoms.

Your body converts fat into energy instead of Sugar when you follow the keto diet. The diet was developed in the 1920s as a treatment for epilepsy, but its effects on type 2 diabetes are also being investigated.

The ketogenic diet has been shown to improve blood glucose (sugar) levels while also lowering insulin requirements. The diet, however, is not without its drawbacks. Before making any major dietary changes, consult with your doctor.
