Hello doctor,

Does the keto diet positively affect and alleviate stomach issues such as IBS?

#

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Keto diet is a crash diet, which means it can be done for a short period of two to three months or so. It can surely improve digestive issues such as IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) as it involves a very low intake of carbohydrates. But one must be careful in making the right food choices while consuming fats.

Avoid eating fried stuff. Go for healthy fats and proteins like whole boiled eggs, steamed chicken, cottage cheese, raw olive oil, and avocados, etc. You can include vegetables like carrots, peas, broccoli, spinach, kale, and mushrooms, etc. Do it for one month, and if it shows good results, you can continue further.
