    I think you should be careful about keto diet if diabetic for the reason you have given.

    Ask your doctor for a referral to a dietitian.

    I suggest you to go for balanced diet with portion control!! This will help you in maintaining you blood glucose level normal! Ketogenic diet is not that satisfying!

    You need to let your doctor help you with you diet so you get the right carbohydrates to balance your insulin intake. Exercise and losing weight will help you manage your diabetes, and it can be done while moderating your carb intake according to your doctor's instructions.

    Keto may be the perfect way of eating for you....or it may not. Do your research and then bring it to your doctor. They will let you know if you can safely try it for your body. (Youtube is a great source to see other diabetics who have done a low carb lifestyle.)
