I am on a modified Keto diet that seems to be helping me hold my weight in check:183 lbs for over one year….There are a number of keto diet pills on the market, are they safe to take??????
In addition to checking with a doctor, I'd caution you about where you're buying the keto pills and to know exactly what's in them. I'd never buy supplements through ads on tv, magazines or the internet. So many functional medicine practitioners, many of whom promote the keto diet, such as Dr. Berg, Dr.Boz, Dr. Will Cole, and Dr. Mark Hyman, sell supplements. I would have more faith in them than I would from supplements from the drug store, vitamin shop, or Amazon. In addition, I'd do a google search to read reviews about the specific pills you're thinking about. If people have had adverse reactions or they have been shown to be dangerous or ineffective, there will most likely be something about that. I'd also check where they were made and if they were made from certified organic products.
Are they dangerous? How do they affect NAFL in someone over 70?

Welcome BHoffner. You asked about the safely of keto pills. I moved your message to this existing discussion about keto pills where other members caution about their use. Before taking any supplements, it is best to talk to your doctor and/or a professional dietician, especially since you have non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).
Here's an article about keto and NAFLD that may be of interest.
