I started my journey into the keto diet as a way to try to cut down on the amount of gabapentin I was taking, I figured if it worked for the epileptics, it might work that way for me LOL. But, I found a scholarly place on the internet chock full of all sort of tidbits about the keto diet and why it made sense for me to be on it for many reasons. I ran across a wonderful video about the keto diet and chronic pain that illustrated exactly where doctors in America are in regard to diet in treating disease states. These two doctors described putting their diabetic patients on the keto diet and they not only controlled the diabetes, they had a host of other good things happen, one of which was their neuropathic pain DISAPPEARED! This occurred over and over, so these two docs got together and gathered research to figure out why and presented some rather interesting ideas why. This is just one informational video at this place I found when you combine the words diet and doctor with dot and com. Some of you on here have shown much greater understanding of what's going on than obviously most MD's have, that's because of the neglect in our education when it comes to nutrition and diet. We were taught just order a consultation from the nutritionist. We presume the nutritionist knows what to do LOL. Well, maybe not, with the current food pyramid now falling apart, with my own cholesterol level falling 20 points after a scant 2 weeks on the keto diet. I think we all need to take a good look at nutrition and diet again. The reasons that the two doctors found for the keto diet helping with chronic pain were quite reasonable, I am still waiting for it to help with my chronic pain, but I haven't given up hope no matter what the clinical pathway is! In any case the video is well worth watching.
