Can the Ketogenic diet reduce the size of a Atypical Meningioma tumor?

Posted by christine2121 @christine2121, Thu, May 16 3:26pm

My father has had 4 surgeries to remove multiple benign Meningioma tumors over the last 3 years. He's completed radiation treatments and surgery. The tumors continue to grow and are coming back quicker and in different locations. They are not growing back in the locations in which the radiation was given. The recent tumor is in a location that the doctor is unable to operate in. I watched the documentary on Netflix "Cancer can be killed" and my mind was blown away. This led me to watch the following videos on youtube and read up on studies that have been performed.

1. William Li: Can we eat to starve cancer? | TED Talk
2. Ketogenic Diet, Cancer Metabolism & The Warburg Effect w/ Angela Poff, PhD

At this point, I'm convinced that if he greatly reduces his intake of sugar and follows a strict Ketogenic Diet it could reduce his tumor and prevent the growth of others. I feel the only way that I can convince him is to show him success stories of other people that it's worked for. Looking for information on actual studies and stories from people that have tried.

Hi @christine2121 and welcome to Connect.
Here is some additional information (podcast) about the relationship between brain tumors and the Ketogenic Diet from the the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO)
– Ketogenic Diet and Brain Tumors: What You Need to Know https://www.cancer.net/blog/2017-09/ketogenic-diet-and-brain-tumors-what-you-need-know

I'd like to bring @mrector @pranas @pegorr @lindajean @cindyt63 and @jmb73 into this discussion about diet and meningiomas.

Have you talked to his oncologist about the Keto diet?
