I not diabetic.
I am not a doctor.
But, there are many studies out there that show that high fat intakes lead to high glucose levels in the blood by blocking insulin's ability to unlock the cell for glucose to enter therein.

Here is one of the best lectures on diabetes I've seen:>

Hope this helps you manage your disease.

Be sure to discuss it with your healthcare practitioner ~
