The Effectiveness of a Ketogenic Diet and Carboxytherapy for Lipedema

  • Today I’d like to tell you about a paper by a group of surgeons in Rome, Italy.
  • The article is called: Modified Mediterranean-Ketogenic Diet and Carboxytherapy as
    Personalized Therapeutic Strategies in Lipedema: A Pilot Study.
  • It was published in the peer-reviewed journal Nutrients in August 2023.
  • The aim of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of a personalized modified Mediterranean ketogenic diet (MMKD), with or without carboxytherapy, on symptoms of lipedema including body composition, pain, health status, and quality of life.
