Keto brain fog is a term used to describe the cognitive effects of the ketogenic diet. While on the keto diet, some people may experience problems with thinking, memory, or focus. This is generally temporary and goes away after a person becomes adapted to the keto diet.
Keto brain fog is most likely caused by changes in blood sugar and insulin levels, as well as dehydration. When blood sugar levels drop too low, it can affect mood and cognitive functioning. Additionally, lack of water can lead to reduced blood volume, which can also impact cognitive function.
There are a few things you can do to help reduce the risk of keto brain fog. First, make sure you are drinking plenty of water and eating enough food. Avoiding excessive protein intake can also help prevent low blood sugar levels. Additionally, try to get regular exercise and adequate sleep. If symptoms persist, talk to your doctor about potential causes and solutions.
