The increased risk of kidney stones and gout attacks are often cited as adverse events of ketogenic metabolic therapy (KMT) but there are few studies on these topics. We will discuss possible mechanisms that may lead to increased uric acid levels, hypocitraturia, and decreased urine pH with KMT. We will ask whether urine alkalization and increasing urine citrate levels with products such as SBN’s medical food KetoCitra® should be recommended to decrease these adverse events of KMT.
