Any time you compare a high-carbohydrate diet to a ketogenic, low-carbohydrate diet in diabetics, the low-carb diet wins in the short term. Unfortunately, diabetes is long-term disease. The longer you stay on a ketogenic diet, the more cortisol levels begin to increase to cause weight regain. What you need is an anti-inflammatory diet that has a balance between protein and the glycemic load.
