Update No.2: Keto Diet Cured My Migraines

28th May 2017

I feel that by bringing you regular updates I am in some way helping someone with their struggle with migraines. However this is a totally personal account specific to me and my fight against 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.

Kind Regards
Ben
