This is the personal blog of Keith Runyan, MD. The purpose is to chronicle the management of my type 1 diabetes with a ketogenic diet while pursuing exercise for enjoyment and its health benefits. As I will explain in detail, a ketogenic diet has several unique benefits in the management of type 1 diabetes as well as for type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome, pre-diabetes, glucose intolerance, and insulin resistance. The ketogenic diet has benefits for other medical conditions, but my main emphasis will be on diabetes with which I have personal experience and on the metabolic syndrome for which there is the most scientific evidence in the published literature to substantiate it.
You are welcome to post your comments at the bottom of a blog post to provide feedback on your experiences with and exchange information regarding diet and exercise in those with diabetes or related conditions.
