As someone who used a low-carb keto diet to prevent chronic diseases prevalent in my family and to lose the “baby weight”, I am a enthusiastic proponent of a well formulated low-carb, keto diet. For people taking medications, keto-with-a-coach is the safer route. I help my patients transition into the keto lifestyle while providing deprescribing of medications, weight monitoring, and laboratory test monitoring along the way. My colleagues tell me that it is detrimental for a pharmacy to reduce clients' medication use, but our ultimate obligation is to help our patients maintain their health.
