I had surgery on L4L5 and L5SI a little over 2 years ago. Whilst recovering I managed to herniate L3L4. My pain had been about a 7 most days since the new injury. I also had RFA on my lower faucets joints due to some osteoarthritis. I had one more steroid injection on the recent herniation and I was considering another surgery. I am a 47 year old female.
I knew I needed to also lose weight and had tried several diets. I finally decided to give keto a go. Within one week my back pain (and sciatica) was greatly improved. After about 2 weeks I was able to start hiking again without bending over in pain. As of today I am down 29 pounds and I am hiking about 2.5 miles per day. I am no longer taking Gabapentin or Meloxicam. Essentially my diet is managing my pain.
Has anyone else experienced improved mobility and pain reduction on a keto diet? Thanks
