I will preface this by saying that I am not a doctor, medical professional, nutritionist etc. I am simply someone who follows and studies the ketogenic diet. Along my journey I have met many others who started keto to overcome medical conditions, especially Type II diabetes. It has complicated the lives of (too many) of my friends and loved ones. The good news is that keto and a low carb/high fat lifestyle has drastically improved the lives of many Type II diabetics. Blood glucose levels are lowered and under control and in the case of my own mother, she is off medication for her diabetes. While on my own keto journey for weight loss, I’ve followed many others doing keto for health/medical issues such as Type II diabetes. Those who stuck with it have transformed their lives and their health. My sincerest and heartfelt hope is that this page will help others who have had Type II Diabetes and want to live a better life.
I reference many videos from YouTube but am not affiliated with the people in the videos. Once you have studied these videos, PLEASE TALK TO YOUR DOCTOR ABOUT STARTING KETO. Many doctors have (surprisingly) embraced keto and low carb high fat diet as they have seen how it has improved the lives of their patients. Remember, you are your best advocate when it comes to your health. After talking reviewing these videos, please talk to your doctor before starting this or any regimen.
Step 1 – Understand Ketosis & the Ketogenic Diet for Weight Loss
Understanding the basic principles of the ketogenic diet is important. These videos are for anyone who is considering the ketogenic diet, whether or not you have a medical condition, these videos are a great starting point. In these videos, Dr. Berg gets just technical enough to explain “how” and “why” ketosis works. These videos aim to answer:
- What is ketosis?
- What is a ketone?
- What is happening to my body when it is in a state of ketosis?
- How does the concept of ketosis tie in with weight loss?
- Are there any side effects to ketosis? If so what are they and can they be easily remedied?
This section focuses on keto related videos for those with Type II Diabetes.
