My dh did this diet and he has diabeties. Yes his sugars would go lower but still within normal (4.5-7). He hasn't decrease his dosage as per his dr. instruction but next time he goes in june and him keeping the weight off, she might adjust it then.
Make sure you do the IP alternative for diabetics as you cannot cut out all the carbs as drastically as the regular plan.
