According to the doctor, the primary energy source of our bodies is glucose. Keto diets switch this energy source from glucose to protein. But, according to him, this exposes the body to kidney stones and death - especially for people with diabetes.

"It's a medical emergency, and it can kill you. The Ketogenic diet will leave your body with a lot of ketone bodies and will change the acid-base status in your body and lead to a lot of biochemical changes which one is not aware of," he said.
