You have done some research, came across the Ketogenic Diet and decided that this is the lifestyle you want to follow. While I’ve seen the positive effects of this approach with many patients and also myself, I have to draw your attention to a few important aspects:
- The benefits of the Ketogenic Diet have been shown when it is used alongside conventional treatments. In other words: Please do not rely on the Ketogenic Diet as a cure!
- There is currently no data to support that the diet by itself can treat, cure, maintain or manage cancer.
- Preclinical data is compelling but not conclusive- until we have the results of ongoing clinical trials.
- We are targeting many of the pathways that we know are vital to cancer survival, there are no randomised controlled trials in humans to show these benefits.
