In this case, the term “self-induced diabetes” refers to creating the same symptoms as low blood sugars in a Type 1 diabetic. Unfortunately, Type 1 diabetes is permanent.

I have not been directly involved with clinical trials or medical research involving the Keto diet, so my knowledge of the Keto Flu and other symptoms has been gleaned from the listed articles and other references.

This study, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2716748/ over a relatively short period of time (less than 6 months) seems to show that there are no problems. I could find no long term studies. It seems to work for a quick weight loss. But, then what do you do?

My article suggested permanently changing a person’s diet to the calorie level needed to maintain the desired weight level. I did not suggest any particular foods, just to avoid quick weight loss schemes that end.

The real question is: Do you want to follow a Keto diet for the rest of your life?
