Exploring the Therapeutic Potential of the Ketogenic Diet in Autoimmune Disorders: A Comprehensive Review

Reana Soni

Abstract: Autoimmune diseases, marked by the immune system erroneously targeting healthy cells, pose significant health challenges. The ketogenic diet, characterised by high fat, low carbohydrate, and moderate protein intake, has garnered attention for its anti - inflammatory, and thus autoimmune mediating, effects. Additionally, the diet shows promise in improving metabolic markers, suggesting potential benefits for autoimmune conditions with metabolic components. The paper focuses on specific autoimmune disorders, namely multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis, delving into existing studies to discern the impact of ketogenic diets. By examining the current scientific literature, the paper aims to illuminate the potential role of the ketogenic diet in the management of autoimmune disorders. The focus on specific conditions provides a nuanced understanding of the diet's implications. The findings underscore the need for more robust research efforts in this domain, advocating for further exploration of the diet's efficacy and safety. As our understanding of the intricate interplay between diet and autoimmune responses evolves, this research serves as a stepping - stone toward establishing the ketogenic diet as a credible and viable therapeutic strategy for autoimmune disorders.
