Hi, this is my first post. I have been able to bring my numbers up to Stage 2 now with medication and diet changes but want to lose about 60 lbs and so does anyone know if the new Keto diet would be safe for people with CKD? I went looking and there is a ton of garbage out there on the Intranet about the Keto diet. I had a hard time finding evidence based journal articles. There is a lot of misinformation in order to sell you products. Be careful. So this is my advice and opinion.

It was developed at the Mayo Clinic in as a treatment for epilepsy in children. In recent years the ketogenic diet has made a comeback and today, medical teams are once again using it as a therapy for epileptic kids whose seizures do not respond to medications. The medical ketogenic diet relies on precise ratios of fat to protein and carbohydrates so it requires careful monitoring by a medical team. This is because the diet is not balanced and can lead to nutrient deficiencies among other things. In simple terms, ketosis occurs when there is a metabolic shift, where the body uses fat as the primary energy source instead of carbs. The keto diet is NOT a high protein diet. You would be missing out on too many essential nutrients and probably experience unpleasant side effects as well.
