Alaska's Keto Craze

Posted by Stefanie Leiter on Mar 21, 2020 9:20:00 AM

You’ve tried all the popular diets: Weight Watchers, Nutrisystem, shake replacements. The options are endless, but it doesn’t mean you have found the right fit for your body. With a little homework, a ketogenic diet could be the key to a healthier you with the added bonus of a full night’s sleep.

Studies from National Institutes of Health show ketogenic diets can drastically lower blood sugar and improve insulin resistance, helping to improve diabetes and prediabetes.

It can also improve heart disease including the lowering of blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar. And keto is being used—and increasingly studied—as a dietary therapy for epilepsy, cancer, and neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.

Of course like any health change and diet adjustment, the ketogenic diet is not for everyone. Starting with your physician is important to make sure keto is right for you.

If you have tried keto and still have not seen the benefits for a restful night sleep, the Alaska Sleep Clinic provides free consultations. The underlying issue may be apnea or another sleep condition which can be tested in an overnight study.
