Ketogenic Diets and Pain
Ketosis is not a dangerous state, but ketoacidosis is. See https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/324237.php

Do I have the wrong word in my head? They are similar. I will look at your article. Thanks! Lori Renee
Hi @steeldove From what I just read, both ketosis and ketoacidosis can be dangerous. However, it is not as common with Ketosis. I think the trick is not to go to overboard with extremes of dieting. Personally, I believe in the most current food pyramid for daily nutrition. I went from 200 to 155 lbs., eating everything but fried foods and all sweets. It was a slow, gradual, process, with exercise regularly. But we are thinking of the Keto diet for neuropathy. I know nothing about that. I have never had anything at all that works very well. Perhaps pain relief for some hours, but not long lasting in any way. Frankly, in a nasty frame of mind today with this neuropathy. Totally frustrated. Pain. Not a good day. Lori Renee
For those with diabetes, ketosis can trigger ketoacidosis; the blood becomes too acidic, which can damage the liver, kidneys, and brain. Left untreated, it can be fatal.
