Experts Weigh In On Ketogenic Diet for Diabetes Type 2
By Jasmine Burns
DocRD™ as well as other RD’s and RDN’s gave a comprehensive look at Diabetes and Keto Diet. https://www.thediabetescouncil.com/experts-weigh-ketogenic-diet-diabetes-type-2#dr.-michael-todd-greene,-ed.d.,-m.s.,-r.d
Michael Todd Greene, Ed.D., M.S., R.D.N. said, “I would not recommend a ketogenic diet for someone with DM unless they also suffered from epilepsy. The diet is primarily recommended for hard to control epilepsy in children. I would consider suggesting the Consistent Carbohydrate Diet that is outlined by organizations like Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and American Diabetic Association”.
But what does the American Diabetic Association (ADA) say about diets.
The ADA does describe a Meal Plan or Meal Planning and Eating Patterns as important diet information for people with Diabetes on their website: diabetes.org.
