Hello: I recently started the Keto Diet about 3 weeks ago. Lately I’ve had tingling numbness and prickly fingers and toes. A little bit of leg cramps and lightheadedness. I’ve tried to up my sodium and water because I think I was dehydrated. Anyone else have this experience? How long does it last?
Hello! It sounds like you may be experiencing what is known as the "keto flu", which is a common side effect of transitioning to the keto diet. It should go away within the first few weeks of starting the diet, but if you are still experiencing symptoms after 3 weeks, it may be helpful for you to speak to your doctor about your specific symptoms. It's also important to make sure you are staying properly hydrated and getting enough electrolytes in your diet, as this can help to reduce keto flu symptoms.
