Will eating a steak & nothing else (0 carbs) raise your blood sugar? I read that steaks can lead to Type 2 but it has 0 carbs. Confused!

In brief: It can

A steak, which is basically a piece of muscle, contains very small amount of simple sugars stored and lots of protein that is a structure of many amino acids united together. Those amino acids can be good source for your body to make sugar from. It's a slower process than just eating sugar directly.
So depending on how much you eat of protein, your blood sugar can be.
