    DIET FOR DIABETICS

    I came across this concept called LCHF i.e low carbohydrate high fat diet,meaning,one come a diet of 65% fat and not more than 20% carbohydrates.Idea is to avoid dependence on insulin in the digestive process and bring down the blood sugar levels.On the face of it,it looks logical and a boon for diabetics.Are there any long term consequences of this diet.I have heard of disturbances of the gut flora,NAFLD etc.Is there any valid scientific data on this subject? Curious to know.
