Are low carbohydrate diets good for people with diabetes since carbohydrates raise blood sugar?

We know that carbohydrates are the body’s main source of fuel (energy) and foods containing carbohydrates should provide about half of your calories each day. Low-carbohydrate diets tend to be higher in protein and fat. Following a high-fat, high-protein diet over a long period of time can be hard on the kidneys and heart. People with diabetes are already at risk for kidney and heart disease, so adding low-carbohydrate diets to the mix could cause problems. People with diabetes need to follow a diet that contains the right amount of carbohydrates, so they can do the things they like doing while keeping their blood sugar levels under control.
