Case studies: hypothyreosis, prostate enlargement, T2DM, overmedication, metastatic cancer and more…
Zsófia Clemens, Csaba Tóth
We are often asked the question of whether we have a case report on a specific disease. We cannot write a case report on every single case we cured. Not to mention case reports published in peer-reviewed journals, which is a big task and usually a very long process to wait out. Usually more than the time required to recover and sometimes even longer than you have if you are diagnosed with a severe condition. In the below article we are giving you outlines or at least a glimpse of the histories of patients with different diseases. The descriptions are far from being full, but we concentrate on the main aspects of the diseases.
CASE 1: HYPOTHYREOSIS
CASE 2: PROSTATE ENLARGEMENT
PSA (prostate specific antigen) is only one marker, and there are many more to keep an eye on in prostate enlargement and prostate cancer. But the below figure shows what is expected if one switches to the PKD. The classical ketogenic diet (KD) is not ok if you have this condition. During the classical ketogenic diet, PSA increased, despite the patient followed a low-carb diet. Ketosis alone is not enough. The composition of your diet is crucial if you have prostate enlargement.
CASE 3: OBESITY, T2DM, HYPERTENSION, JOINT PAIN, OVERMEDICATION
CASE 4: RECURRENT METASTATIC CANCER (METASTASES OF BREAST CANCER IN NEW LOCATION: LIVER AND HIP BONE)
CASE 5: FATIGUE, SLEEP AND MOOD ISSUES
This patient had extreme fatigue, bad sleep, bruises on the arms, and mood swings. She was already “trying” to follow PKD with mixed results. She took part in our consultation + two-week follow-up program. Day-by-day, we rectified her diet, adjusted the meat:fat ratio to her actual needs, and caught other small mistakes that preventing her from improving previously.
CASE 6: HASHIMOTO THYROIDITIS
Initially, the patient had brain fog, body pain, swollen extremities, diarrhea and other symptoms. She was overweight. She has been taking desiccated thyroid. She was already following “partial” PKD (meat+vegetables) without major results. She took part in our program, and during the two weeks she perfected her diet, she solidified her knowledge about the application of the PKD, and gained confidence. As can be seen in the below figure, all her symptoms improved during the two weeks. She lost a significant amount of weight. Her thyroid supplementation could have been tapered down. In one month, her TSH went back to normal, and her vitamin levels (vitamin B12, folate, vitamin D) improved.
CASE 7: G6PD (GLUCOSE-6-PHOSPHATE DEHYDROGENASE) DEFICIENCY
The patient had G6PD deficiency, multiple chemical sensitivity, muscle weakness, depression, and anxiety. He had a history of multiple hemolyses requiring hospitalization.
CASE 8: LONG_STANDING TYPE 1 DIABETES
In long-standing type 1 diabetes, it is not possible to stop using external insulin. However, there are at least 3 benefits: lowering insulin dose, avoiding hypoglycemia episodes, and preventing long-term diabetic complications
CASE 9: GESTATIONAL DIABETES
CASE 10: OBESITY, HYPERTENSION
49-years-old male patient taking part in the two-weeks follow-up program. In 18 days blood pressure normalized, and he could discontinue the antihypertensive medication. He lost 4 kilograms.
