This is a relatively common and benign hereditary cause of sporadic jaundice yellowing of the skin due to elevated bilirubin levels caused by the liver not being able to get rid of bilirubin at the normal pace. We had some blood tests done last week and we were astonished with my husbands results. His doctor always told him to avoid sugar, fat and not to exercise too much. For years he followed his advice. For the last two years on LCLF the only recommendation he followed was to avoid sugar and fat. He exercised 3 times a week. His bilirubin decreased. Weight stable from to present. Over the last month he has changed to a LCHF diet. He started to eat a lot of fat butter, olive oil, coconut oil, red meat, oily fish, avocado… and continued to exercise about 3 times a week.

Abdominal ultrasound showed a mildly heterogenous and echogenic liver, without focal lesions, suggestive of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. The only significant change from previous consultation four months prior was introduction of a ketogenic diet consisting of eggs, cheese, butter, oil, nuts, leafy green vegetables and milk almond and coconut. The patient reported a reduction in hunger on this diet. Immediate discontinuation of the diet resulted in modest reduction of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol LDL-C and liver enzymes two weeks later. This case report discusses the rationale, benefits and risks of a ketogenic diet and encourages increased vigilance and monitoring of patients on such a diet. The ketogenic diet was originally developed for implementation under medical supervision to treat refractory epilepsy in infants and children [ 1 ]. It is a high-fat, low-carb, moderate-protein diet that produces metabolic changes similar to those seen in a state of starvation. These changes include increased levels of free fatty acids and serum ketones acetoacetate, acetone and beta-hydroxybutyrate and decreased levels of insulin, glucose and glucagon [ 2 ]. The theory is that ketone bodies are anti-convulsant when they cross the blood-brain barrier [ 3 ].
