In this video, we’re going to talk about what you need to know about diabetes, medications, and the keto diet.
If you’re someone who is on medications for diabetes and you want to start keto, you may be curious as to what will happen when you go into ketosis. Will your medication needs change?
First, I’d like to say that you should always talk to your doctor and get their approval for any changes to your medications. Medical doctors are trained to adjust your medications as needed.
Type 2 diabetes is a problem of high sugars in the blood. Medications address this issue. The problem is, when you lower your carbs, your need for these medications may go down. This is because cutting out carbs will lower your blood sugar levels.
Without making adjustments, you may run into a hypoglycemic situation.
If you’re starting keto, continue to check in with your doctor as well as test your blood sugar levels frequently. This will give you indications of low or high blood sugars.
For some people, blood sugar levels on keto go down pretty quickly. For others, it can take a lot of time—it depends on how bad your diabetes is and how your body responds to keto.
If your blood sugars are low or normal, should you still take blood sugar medications? This is something you’re going to want to check with your doctor on. In my opinion, the answer is no.
In summary, if you’re a diabetic on keto, you should test your blood sugars and consult your doctor frequently so they can make changes to your medications as needed.
