20 thoughts on “Does a Ketogenic Diet Help Diabetes or Make It Worse?

  1. This is the final video in a 7-part series. You can see the whole series at -NF Team

  2. 1/3 of Americans will be diabetic by 2050, and high fat is a big part of the problem, but no the only part. Of course, the sugar is bad, too, the refined foods, and other things, too. Keto = high fat. It's just telling people it's ok what they want to eat; it validates them, so it's easy to convince people; it's self confirmation bias.

  3. On this Dr has been rated as pseudoscience with some elevated health claims. To quote 'Conspiracy-Pseudoscience category may publish unverifiable information that is not always supported by evidence. These sources may be untrustworthy for credible/verifiable information, therefore fact checking and further investigation is recommended on a per article basis when obtaining information.

  4. My mother definitely lost 25kg and reversed her type 2 diabetes. She has done the hard work, and enjoys high carbs here and there but has found Keto food to be way more fulfilling. Yes her blood sugar level rockets because she was sensitive, but that was only at the start of reintroducing carbs – people would rather tare it down than believe a human will adapt to it's conditions. High BGL should not be the aim, and using it as the argument is far from Keto and just stupid.

  5. Your presentation is very misleading: I have T2D and following a LCHF diet helped me reduce my HBa1c from 8.2 to 6.2 in 4 months, my TG from 108 mg/dl to 91, my Ch-T from 140 mg/dl to 124, my CH-LDL from 0.74 mg/dl to 0.47 , increased my CH-HDL from 0.50 to 0.59. The bonus: I lost 11 kgs (from 74 to 63). I haven't taken any form of medication. Note: if an individual is on a LCHF diet, it is very normal that they have blood glucose spikes after a high carb meal, that is known as the second meal effect. The second meal phenomenon is due to fact that the metabolism has re-adapted itself to fat (healthy fats) ingestion while on a LCHF which necessitates more bile and less insulin. The same phenomenon would happen to an individual on a high carb diet having fatty meals (not enough bile to help digest). I feel more comfortable with high bile than insulin , would you? By the way, thanks to regular exercise (walking for not less than an hour daily) I noticed an increase in my body lean mass and less fatigue, contrary to what you have quoted and presented as fact. Actually, it is fiction, my case is fact.
    P.S. my sexual performance? My wife is so happy: rigid and sustained erection …

  6. 101 sales (to give fear to your audience). More than 90% of the video rumbling around other stuff). How can you live with yourself?

  7. I wonder if Eric Berg is smart enough to have given up on Keto himself personally and is just pretending at this point for his channel.

  8. Having just had a brush with type 2 myself, I now see that the KETO loons are using diabetes as an argument against anyone eating carbs ever.

    Shame on them – well at least the ones with medical credentials – not the meathead gym bros who can't help themselves…
    Keto is for people who have an unhealthy liking for barbecue and are going to die early and painfully anyway.
    And those who think the "Cardassian" "no-neck" look is a good one (Shawn Baker)

  9. Check out the Newcastle researh – unclog your liver and pancreas and reverse type 2 and massively improve type 1.
    No point avoiding "carbs" for life if your liver remains clogged with lard.

  10. Dr. What do you think about iron pan? I don't know if I am Iron deficient but I'mnplanning to buy one. What should I consider? PLEASE answer or make a video on it because I urgently need to buy a pan.

  11. How about; "The Silence of the Lambs Diet"
    Dr. Hannibal Lecter: I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice Chianti.
