In the past days I’ve been reading a lot about ketogenic nutrition and its controversial discussion related to diabetes type 1.
What I understand is that zero carb nutrition will make the body to burn fat since there is nearly no other source to get energy from. In my understanding, on a keto diet you try to eat nearly zero carbs, so that no insulin was needed and thus no insulin is beeing released.
Now I’m wondering why this would work for diabetics type 1 using insulin. Because you have to get any basal or bolus insulin in order to compensate glucose production by the liver or protein intace. But if keto diet aims to prevent insulin from beeing released, every insulin injection would destroy that effect then, right?
Maybe anyone could help me what I am getting wrong?
