Does Keto Diet Help Reverse Heart Failure with Preserved Ejection Fraction?

Trial Objective

Does Keto Diet Help Reverse Heart Failure with Preserved Ejection Fraction?The purpose of this study is to learn if a low carbohydrate ketogenic diet, or keto diet, can treat obesity-related heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF). Studies have shown that weight loss through gastric bypass and calorie restriction can improve heart function. To see if a low carbohydrate diet works similarly, participants will follow a keto diet and be monitored for seven months.
