Saw this study:
I love how the abstract states that keto is not a good idea, because the reduction in appetite will cause elderly patients to eat less and therefore be malnourished. They should only see how “emaciated” I am on keto!
My husband has two neurological diseases: Hydrocephalus and Parkinson’s and just turned 55, so not technically a senior yet. I have been trying to get him to do Keto, and I feel it would help his symptoms, so far not convincing him or the doctors… =(
This article indicates there is some promising research out there indicating that such a dietary change can be beneficial.
Yes, the problem is convincing him and his doctors…
There’s some misleading information in there too about alleged side effects of keto. I don’t know what they were feeding those subjects… maybe an old formula they used for epilepsy, full of PUFAs and lacking micronutrients? Anyway, that’s not the best article to convince a doctor.
The full version of the study is available with a pdf link here: https://www.mdpi.com/2072-6643/11/1/169 There are plenty of references to the studies they cite if you wanted to sort through which ones might be the most convincing.
