Ketogenic diets have become the fad health trend of the moment. Adherents claim that they can help you lose and keep off weight fast and provide a bevy of health benefits. But a new mouse study out of Switzerland suggests that keto diets might have an unintended effect, the ability to process insulin, which could possibly raise the risk of type 2 diabetes. Keto diet causes low levels of circulating glucose and insulin. Gizmodo reports, researchers fed one group of mice a diet high in fat but with plenty of carbs. The other group ate a keto diet. Then they measured their metabolism and blood sugar. The carbs-and-fat dieting mice had signs of insulin resistance in the liver, and worse control of their blood sugar. But surprisingly, so did the keto mice, and to a noticeably greater degree. The study was published Wednesday in the Journal of Physiology.
