The first thing on the Ingredients is:
5-1/2 oz (154 g) pork rinds

It alarms me that for a diabetic recipe you would use Pork.

Although basically vegan, for my diabetes, I sometimes bend the rules and do chicken and this recipe caught my eye because it was oven fried. But stopped because of the Pork.

I still think my thinking is best on this subject.

Pork rinds for flour substitute. Heard of that but never tried it. Sounds interesting. Like most guys, I love bacon.
The vegan thing just goes against my grain. Eyes in the front of my head, carnivore's incisor teeth, whether you subscribe to evolution or Creation, I feel humans are supposed to eat SOME meat. Key word being some. We also have teeth for grinding grain and vegetables. Balance being the key. Ahh well, I'll leave the vegans and vegetarians to their's, long as they leave me to mine. To each his own.

I'm a little confused. Is there a problem for diabetics to eat pork?

There is no problem with pork for diabetics, or any other meat for that matter.

Thanks. I like pork & eat it 1-2x a week. Right now I'm on a high protein diet because when I had hernia surgery they discovered I was majorly lacking protein in my body. Dr wasn't sure why. I was eating my share of protein. Not eating too many carbs. BS was in check. Dr had done some blood work cause I was fighting a fatigue problem but all that showed was my iron was a little low. We never did find out why this happened. However, after the surgery I had a reaction to the anasthesia. It was like my saliva glands were working backwards. I could have the most succulent piece of meat & after 2 chews it & my mouth were so bone dry that I would have to sip water to finish chewing it to get it down. It took about 4 months for that to subside. When it did subside & I could eat more and better protein the fatigue went away.

No his problem is that he is VEGAN (no meat, milk or eggs) thinking that this way of eating will help his DM, but he "bends the rules" and eats chicken from time to time. I know of no restrictions for pork placed on PWDs. There are certain religious groups which aren't supposed to eat pork but outside of vegetarians or veganism I know of no restrictions on pork for diabetics.

For non vegan recipes, the reason pork rinds are used is because they have zero carbs. The carbs in most chicken recipes come from the coating. This way the carbs are reduced. It is kind of like wrapping your chicken in bacon. Interesting
