Description of ketogenic diet

A ketogenic diet may help you lower your blood pressure.  A ketogenic diet is a high-fat, low-carb diet where most of the calories you eat come from fat.

Studies show that this diet may lower your blood pressure in the short-term. You may lose weight on this diet, too. Weight loss is also known to lower blood pressure. Experts don’t know yet if the reduced blood pressure is from the diet or the weight loss.

The long-term effects of a ketogenic diet are unclear. Most experts have found that the diet loses its beneficial effect after a year. Talk to your doctor before you start this type of diet. They can suggest ways you can manage your blood pressure.
