Ketogenic Diet: A Nutritional Therapeutic Tool for Lipedema?

  • Today I’d like to tell you about a review paper by a group of researchers from Naples and Rome, Italy.
  • It was published in the peer-reviewed journal Current Obesity Reports in November 2023.
  • This review aimed to summarize the current evidence on the efficacy and safety of very low calorie ketogenic diet as a potential treatment for lipedema, especially in the context of obesity.
  • This paper is important for individuals with lipedema because it adds to the growing evidence that lipedema CAN respond to particular diets, namely ketogenic diets.
