The ketogenic diet is a very low carbohydrate, moderate protein, and high fat diet that makes the body depend on fatty acids and ketones for fuel, rather than glucose. The studies indicate that a ketogenic diet has significant benefits for type 2 diabetics found that a ketogenic diet improves HbA1c, promotes weight loss, reverses kidney damage and improves blood lipids and cardiovascular health in type 2 diabetics.
