The Ketogenic Diet's Impact on Lymphedema

  • In January 2017, Dr. Melissa Garcia Caballero joined Prof. Peter Carmeliet’s prestigious laboratory in Leuven, Belgium, to investigate the therapeutic role of ketone body supplementation in lymphedema.
  • The exciting findings from this study garnered interest among clinicians and led to the initiation of a collaborative translational clinical Phase II trial (KetoLymph) to test the ketogenic diet’s therapeutic potential in cancer patients who develop lymphedema.
  • Dr. García Caballero, co-author of over 35 scientific publications, is also a professor at the University of Málaga in Spain.
