Is Keto a sustainable diet for diabetics in the long term?

Hello everyone, 5 months ago I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. I had an A1C of 12.3%, an average glucose of 306 ml/dl and I weighed 225 pounds. My doctor immediately prescribed metformin 4x 500mg per day and strongly suggested a low carb diet. A few years before this happened I was keto for six months and had great success so decided to try again. Fast forward to today and I can say that I have had great results. My weight is down to 175 pounds, my A1C is at 5.7%, and my average glucose is 117 ml/dl. Within that amount of time I’ve had a total of 3 cheat days, but even the cheat days don’t go above 125 carbs. Usually on cheat day I notice that my blood sugar rises sharply. Having said that, I have come to the conclusion that this should be a diet I follow for the long haul. My question is, is this a diet I can manage for a lifetime while staying healthy or is it something I’ll have to stop doing eventually? Thank you all!
