    Would Keto weight loss be a good recommendation for someone who’s diabetic? Totally understanding that walking and exercise is important. Would weight loss still be possible if the person is unable to exercise and is limited walking and lifting, due to injury.

      Hi Rebecca,

      You MUST check with your doctor first, but this is what research shows so far:

      Research suggests that people with type 2 diabetes can slim down and lower their blood sugar levels with the keto diet. In one study, people with type 2 lost weight, needed less medication, and lowered their A1c when they followed the keto diet for a year.

      A ketogenic diet may help some people with type 2 diabetes because it allows the body to maintain glucose levels at a low but healthy level.


      The ketogenic diet can lead to a variety of other benefits including:

        lower blood pressure
        improved insulin sensitivity
        reduced dependency on medication
        improvements in high-density lipoprotein (HDL), or “good” cholesterol, without adding to low-density lipoprotein (LDL), or “bad” cholesterol
        a drop in insulin
