Can the keto diet boost fertility?

There seem to be more advantages to going keto. Cure for infertility? Who knows. Perhaps going keto just improves peoples’ chances of conceiving because they feel they look better and maybe have sex more often. The more you shots on goal the more points you score… theoretically.

In a column on the health and wellness website, Miller writes that the keto diet may help with four fertility issues: insulin resistance (less insulin is required to maintain blood sugar in ketosis), pituitary dysfunction (the diet optimizes leptin levels to help the body release the appropriate reproductive hormones), elevated levels of the hormone androgen and DHEA (the diet can effectively reduce DHEA levels, balance hormones, and counter androgenic excess), and body composition (keto can help people lose weight, reduce inflammation and promote the healthy production of hormones.)
