Update No.2: Keto Diet Cured My Migraines
I am now well into my fourth week of my ketogenic (high fat, low carb) diet.
I self-diagnosed myself with Reactive Hypoglycaemia, whereby the body over-produces insulin after a meal leaving me with very low blood-glucose resulting in chronic tiredness in turn triggering migraines on an almost daily pattern.
I have had not migraines since starting this diet. I eat no simple carbohydrates and consume no sugar. It is such a revelation for me to be living such a headache free existence. I had almost given up finding a cure, I was resigned to living under this storm cloud for the rest of my life.
Sure the diet is not easy and yes, I miss sugar, sweet puddings and chocolate. But I gladly give these things up for a headache free life. I have yet to decide whether or not to pursue the reason why I produce too much insulin, I will leave that for another day.
Feel free to reply, I would be happy to assist anyone who can relate to my migraine story.
