Potential Risks of a Vegan Keto Diet

Nutrient Deficiencies

Being on a vegan keto diet means cutting friendships with animal products. This lowers the chances of getting certain vitamins, including vitamin B12, involved in DNA production, blood cell formation, and cell metabolism. The main sources of this B vitamin include meat, dairy products, eggs, and shellfish.

Kidney Stones

A vegan keto diet is low in carbohydrates and high in fat and protein. Following the diet pumps more protein into the body, increasing the risk of kidney stones.

Hepatic Steatosis

Hepatic steatosis or fatty liver occurs when fat accumulates in the liver. Since a vegan keto diet encourages more fat consumption, following it can make you susceptible to the health problem.

In my spare time, I enjoy reading (a big fan of thrillers) and going on hikes.
