Activity Description

Despite continuous advances in the medical world, obesity remains a significant worldwide health hazard, contributing to adult mortality rates as high as 2.8 million per year. Obesity is closely linked to numerous chronic diseases, including diabetes, hypertension, and heart disease, often resulting from an unhealthy lifestyle and poor dietary habits. The implementation of appropriately tailored diet regimens for weight reduction can help mitigate the obesity epidemic to some extent. One diet regimen that has shown efficacy in rapid weight loss is the very low-carbohydrate and high-fat ketogenic diet. This activity aims to review the evaluation and considerations for the ketogenic diet while highlighting the role of the interprofessional team in educating patients about the associated risks and benefits of this dietary approach.


Target Audience

This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of physicians, physician associates, nurses, pharmacists, and nurse practitioners.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, the learner will be better able to:

  • Differentiate between the ketogenic diet and other dietary approaches, considering their specific mechanisms, macronutrient composition, and potential benefits and risks.

  • Screen patients for potential contraindications or conditions that may require modifications or close monitoring when implementing the ketogenic diet.

  • Assess and monitor patients' progress, including weight loss, metabolic markers, and potential adverse effects associated with the ketogenic diet.

  • Collaborate with registered dietitians and other healthcare professionals to provide comprehensive support and education to patients on the ketogenic diet.
