La dieta cetogénica está contraindicada en personas mayores de 65 años, niños y adolescentes, mujeres embarazadas o en período de lactancia. Además de esto, personas en riesgo de cetoacidosis, diabéticos tipo 1, diabéticos tipo 2 descontrolada, antecedentes de cetoacidosis, personas con caquexia, personas con insuficiencia hepática o renal, enfermedades cardiovasculares, accidente cerebrovascular, personas con piedras en la vesícula o que no tengan vesícula y los pacientes en tratamiento con medicamentos a base de cortisona.
Si merece la pena la dieta, probablemente se encuentre una mejor dieta después, pero por el momento puede evitar la diabetes y controlarla en algunos casos, creeme la diabetes si causa insuficiencia renal (visita un hospital en México los pisos estan cada vez más llenos de insuficiencia renal causada por diabetes), daño a la retina, aumenta el riesgo de enfermedades cardiovasculares, pie diabético (y amputaciones cuando se complica), etc. Se debe hacer algo por evitar las viejas dietas que claramente no funcionan, visista los hospitales y revisa las estadísticas de las enfermedades metabólicas, son terribles.

A study with an intent-to-treat prospective design was published in 1998 by a team from the Johns Hopkins Hospital and followed-up by a report published in 2001. As with most studies of the ketogenic diet, no control group (patients who did not receive the treatment) was used. The study enrolled 150 children. After three months, 83% of them were still on the diet, 26% had experienced a good reduction in seizures, 31% had had an excellent reduction, and 3% were seizure-free.[Note 7] At 12 months, 55% were still on the diet, 23% had a good response, 20% had an excellent response, and 7% were seizure-free. Those who had discontinued the diet by this stage did so because it was ineffective, too restrictive, or due to illness, and most of those who remained were benefiting from it. The percentage of those still on the diet at two, three, and four years was 39%, 20%, and 12%, respectively. During this period, the most common reason for discontinuing the diet was because the children had become seizure-free or significantly better. At four years, 16% of the original 150 children had a good reduction in seizure frequency, 14% had an excellent reduction, and 13% were seizure-free, though these figures include many who were no longer on the diet. Those remaining on the diet after this duration were typically not seizure-free, but had had an excellent response.
