Ketogenic diets (KDs) are gaining attention as a potential adjuvant therapy for cancer. However, few studies examining KDs in cancer patients have been conducted to date, and data related to quality of life are limited. Existing evidence suggests that this type of diet may improve elements of both physical and mental well-being, such as insomnia and emotional function. In addition, the results from this randomized, controlled trial indicate that a KD may improve physical status, increase energy levels, and reduce food cravings in some cancer patients. Although additional research is needed, the findings reported here indicate that this type of diet may be appropriate for clinicians to prescribe as part of a comprehensive cancer treatment plan.
