Crohn’s disease successfully treated with the paleolithic ketogenic diet


Journal: International Journal of Case Reports and Images
Publication Date: 09/2016
Summary: Here we report a severe case of Crohn’s disease where we successfully applied the paleolithic ketogenic diet. Dietary therapy resulted in resolution of symptoms, normalized laboratory parameters as well as gradual normalization of bowel inflammation as evidenced by imaging data and normalization of intestinal permeability as shown by the polyethylene glycol (PEG 400) challenge test. The patient was able to discontinue medication within two weeks. Currently, he is on the diet for 15 months and is free of symptoms as well as side effects.

Key Takeaways

Chron's disease is reversible with appropriate dietary intervention. This case utilized a paleo and ketogenic approach (nearly carnivore) to reverse Chron's and discontinue medication resulting in the patient being symptom free for 15 months.
