Is The Ketogenic Diet Safe For People With Diabetes?

Is The Ketogenic Diet Safe for People with Diabetes? If you’ve been diagnosed with diabetes, chances are you’re looking for simple yet effective ways to control your blood sugar. And, if at all possible, without the use of daily shots or medications. As I’ve mentioned in earlier blog posts, exercise is one of the best natural ways to manage blood glucose. But perhaps the most obvious way to keep blood sugar at a safe and consistent level without insulin is to pay special attention to what you eat.

    Hi ya'll, it's me again,
    I'm just recovering from a horrendous UTI (urinary tract infection). I have only had one once before in my entire life and I can tell you UTIs are incredibly painful.
    I'm wondering if there is any connection between getting a UTI and diabetes or perhaps a connection with being new to a low carb diet. I've been very low carb-ing (less that 30 g per day) for about a month now and prior to this past month I was keeping carbs under 60 g per day.
    I'm just wondering if ketosis brings on bacteria in our bodies for a short time? Any thoughts?
