Psoriasis, Psoriatic Arthritis Patients Benefited from Mediterranean-Ketogenic Diet Program

The article below suggests that a Mediterranean-Ketogenic diet may benefit patients with psoriasis/psoriatic arthritis. We suggest that all patients with these conditions consider adopting this diet.

A 22-week combination Mediterranean–Ketogenic diet program designed for individuals with psoriasis (PsO) and psoriatic arthritis (PsA) may result in benefits reflected in the indices of disease activity, according to recent findings.1

The ketogenic diet element of the program was the primary diet attributed to these benefits, though beneficial tendencies were also seen with the Mediterranean diet element.

The 22-week diet program in patients with PSO and PSA led to beneficial results in markers of inflammation and disease activity, which were mainly attributed to ketogenic diet. The investigators of this research highlighted that the impacts of such diets on psoriatic disease are still relatively unknown.2

This research was led by Vaia Lambadiari, MD, PhD, from the second department of internal medicine at Attikon University Hospital of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece. Lambadiari and colleagues wrote that their goal was to assess the efficacy of a Mediterranean and ketogenic diet for both psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis.
