From: Revealing the molecular relationship between type 2 diabetes and the metabolic changes induced by a very-low-carbohydrate low-fat ketogenic diet

Figure 4

Protein relationship between effector proteins involved in the insufficient insulin production motive of diabetes and the key pathways of the ketogenic diet. Two complementary hypothesis of functional relationship between the molecules involved in both physiological processes have evolved: a) Elements of lipid metabolism may facilitate proper cellular localization of glucose transporter and recycling and b) Ketone bodies can alleviate certain inflammatory processes by blocking specific cytokines.
