Best keto resources for clinicians

Note: A low-carbohydrate diet is a loose term for restriction of sugar & starches. Similarly, there are many versions of the ketogenic diet for weight loss. A stricter version, the medical/therapeutic ketogenic diet (TKD) requires strict macro-nutrient measurement and strict patient adherence. A TKD uses blood ketone levels as an objective criteria of achievement.

Keto diet guidelines

Many types of keto diets are related to weight loss goals. Different diet versions are also emerging to treat specific  disorders. Some are elimination diets to treat allergies or reactions to food, others aim at improving irritable bowel or other digestive issues. Other versions of the diet help with neurological or psychiatric disorders, these require close monitoring and specific design..  Ketogenic diets can be used to control or reverse metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes and these versions also require careful control.  If a ketogenic diet is used to treat a disorder, it is being used as a medical intervention, and as such it will require medical supervision and strict adherence.

If you take prescription medications or suspect you have an underlying condition, then please work with your clinicians to tailor your diet to your specific needs. Of course, there are also many websites, books, podcasts and self-proclaimed experts aimed at weight loss. Buyer beware.
