Is the extreme popularity of the keto diet putting the lives of people with diabetes at risk? In this new article, we get to know Craig Johnson who is a type 1 diabetic. In order not to get into the life-threatening stage of ketoacidosis he needs to keep track of his ketones. Lately, he hasn’t gotten a hold of the keto sticks he usually uses to measure ketosis because of people on the keto diet are purchasing them in bulk. The article suggests that keto dieters are putting people with diabetes at risk.
What is not disclosed in this article is that there are several ways to measure ketosis, not only keto sticks. And not everybody on the keto diet measures their ketones, far from it.
Anyway this should be a temporary issue. Demand will drive production so in the near future neither people with diabetes nor keto dieters will probably lack keto sticks.
