Exploring the Viability of Ketogenic Diet as a Therapeutic Approach for Lipedema

  • Today, I’m excited to discuss a review paper authored by researchers from Naples and Rome, Italy.
  • Published in the esteemed peer-reviewed journal Current Obesity Reports in November 2023, this review aimed to consolidate existing evidence concerning the efficacy and safety of very-low-calorie ketogenic diets as a potential intervention for lipedema, particularly within the context of obesity.
  • This paper holds significance for individuals managing lipedema as it contributes to the mounting evidence suggesting that specific dietary interventions, notably ketogenic diets, may elicit positive responses in the treatment of lipedema.
