    Should D-Ribose should be treated as if it were any other carb? If am trying to keep carbs down to 50 grams per day and I take 5 grams of D-Ribose with my breakfast, am I left with only 45 net carbs for the day?

    I see a lot of conflicting literature regarding D-ribose and keto.

    Some say that D-ribose lowers blood sugar, but raises insulin moderately and then I also hear it just seems to not increase pancreatic insulin, but it does increase overall insulin.

    (How is that even possible?)

    Thanks in advanced!

    How does it raise insulin but not increase pancreatic insulin?
