Ketogenic diets may lead to an increased risk of type 2 diabetes

August 8, 2018, The Physiological Society

New research published in the Journal of Physiology indicates that ketogenic diets, which are low carbohydrate high fat eating plans that are known to lead to weight loss, may cause an increased risk of Type 2 diabetes in the early stage of the diet.

Type 2 diabetes is one of the most pressing challenges of our time and its ultimate cause has not been fully understood. Ketogenic diets, which are low in carbohydrate and high in fat, are known to lead to weight loss and have been considered to be healthy. These findings raise new questions about ketogenic diets and whether or not they are actually healthy.

NOTE : I believe they are referring to over weight people who follow this diet to loose weight. For Diabetics -it does help to lower BS.

If you are eating all the day and sitting idle, whatever diet it would be, you are gonna be a diabetic soon.

Eat limited, have some movement,take enough sleep, live stressless life and keep diabetes away.

Weird explanation. Only liver is not IR but the whole body is.Ketogenic diet is the remedy of both obesity and diabetes. It can't cause t2d can be explained scientifically. No need to worry if someone is taking keto diet.

I will rely on high volume of data available on thousands of men and women following KETO/LCHF diet rather than paying attention to the results of a small experiment on few mice. And I fully agree with suramo and makarim .

I agree- I just saw this in news - and thought about sharing. Yes it is a very small sample for study.
