Ketogenic diet in cancer management.

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: This review presents details about types of ketogenic diet (KD), anticancer mechanisms, and the use of KD in experimental and clinical studies. Studies summarized in this review provide a solid ground for researchers to consider the use of KD to augment conventional treatments.

RECENT FINDINGS: KD is a dietary pattern composed of high fat, moderate proteins, and very-low-carbohydrate. This diet was suggested to have an anticancer effect and to augment conventional anticancer therapies. KD can target cancer cell by interfering with its metabolism without harming normal cells.

SUMMARY: Several experimental and clinical studies support the use of KD as adjuvant therapy to treat different cancers.
