The keto diet is wonderful and transformative, but it isn’t for everybody. If you have Type 1 diabetes, for instance, doing it would be very risky indeed. If you are in any doubt about whether my diet is safe for you given your medical profile, please consult your doctor. Actually, do this anyway. Apart from anything else, it is essential that doctors get to see what Keto can do for their clients’ health first hand.

There is a fairly full but not exhaustive list of conditions which are not compatible with doing my diet.


People suffering from any of the following conditions should not go on my diet:

  • Type 1 Diabetes
  • Symptoms of addiction to Alcohol, food and drugs.
  • Previously diagnosed cancers, or polyps of the intestines and colon.
  • Previous or current pathology of the pancreas.
  • Carnitine deficiency (primary)
  • Carnitine palmitoyltransferase (CPT) I or II deficiency
  • Carnitine translocase deficiency
  • Beta-oxidation defects
  • Mitochondrial 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutarylCoA synthase (mHMGS) deficiency
  • Medium-chain acyl dehydrogenase deficiency (MCAD)
  • Long-chain acyl dehydrogenase deficiency (LCAD)
  • Short-chain acyl dehydrogenase deficiency (SCAD)
  • Long-chain 3-hydroxyacyl-CoA deficiency
  • Medium-chain 3-hydroxyacyl-CoA deficiency
  • Pyruvate carboxylase deficiency
  • Porphyria
