Although millions of people have been able to transition to a very low carbohydrate diet without documented harm, there are some for whom a low-carb diet must be approached with some caution.
If you are taking medication to control your blood sugar or blood pressure, you may need to quickly reduce the dosage and may need to discontinue these meds altogether if you significantly restrict your carbohydrate intake. This is best done under the supervision of a doctor.
Although ketogenic diets are not “high protein diets”, for anyone who has serious kidney disease, any increase in dietary protein can be a problem. If you have kidney disease you should consult your doctor before making any changes to your diet.
If you have gallbladder attacks or gallstones you should exercise extreme caution where increasing dietary fat is concerned and you may first need to resolve this issue with your trusted, licensed health care provider before embarking on any major dietary change.
