The Ketogenic Diet as Medical Therapy: Interview with Dominic D'Agostino for Levels
Dominic D'Agostino interviews Beth Zupec-Kania and Denise Potter about the Ketogenic Diet as medical therapy, for Levels.
The ketogenic diet is often used as a tool for weight loss and to improve metabolic health. However, it is increasingly being considered, studied, and used as a medical therapy for chronic physical and mental health conditions, and it can be tailored to patients’ specific needs. Beth Zupec-Kania, Denise Potter, and Dr. Dominic D’Agostino discuss the benefits of the ketogenic diet, how they customize keto for patients with dietary preferences like veganism, how to ease into the change with a pre-keto diet, and how the keto diet may be able to help people reduce or eliminate medications under the supervision of medical professionals.
