Keto vs. Whole Foods Diet for Pain
- Today I’d like to tell you about a study by a group from Australia. The title of the paper is: Effects of a low-carbohydrate ketogenic diet on reported pain, blood biomarkers, and quality of life in patients with chronic pain: A pilot randomized clinical trial. It was published in Pain Medicine in February 2022.
- The aim of this research is to determine changes in reported pain, metabolic biomarkers, inflammation, and quality of life in patients with chronic pain on a well-formulated whole-food ketogenic diet (WFKD) compared to a whole food diet (WFD).
