Yes, it is recommended by some docs to control diabetes. It is for individual and is not for everyone as your carbs/day are often <20 to 30. If you were to try it, I would recommend testing your blood sugar to see if you are experiencing lows. When I tried it, I found it to be very restrictive. It's not a plan that I would be able to stick with the rest of my life. I am already dropping low with carbs 15-30 per meal. I don't know how people do it.
I have done it but moved up to Atkins which is very similar but has like more wiggle room. You can do the keto but make sure you test frequently especially if you’re on insulin when eating this way. You may need less, but in all aspects, have your Dr. on board with you as you make the adjustment.
