A ketogenic diet, also known as the Atkins diet, is designed to help prevent kidney stones.
It has been shown to be effective for people with kidney disease.
A keto-diet pill has been used for years in the United States.
But the new study shows that the pill works for people who don’t have kidney stones and is a safer alternative to traditional surgery.
“I think it’s a real testament to the power of the keto pill and the fact that it can be used as a safe, effective and cost-effective method of kidney stone removal,” said Dr. David Spiegelhalter, the lead author of the new paper and an associate professor of medicine at the University of California, San Francisco.
The Mayo Clinic published the study online Monday.
Dr. Spiegelhalters study included a group of people who had a kidney stone and had kidney failure.
People who did not have kidney stone had to do dialysis for four weeks, and those who had kidney stone but did not develop kidney failure were given a ketogenic pill.
People who had the kidney stone were then given an infusion of a keto supplement that mimicked the pill.
They took a daily dose of the supplement, and the drug was taken daily for four months.
In the next two weeks, patients were asked to perform a kidney dialysis every two weeks to check their kidney stones for signs of kidney disease and urine tests for kidney function.
Those who did the diet pills had a 50 percent chance of achieving a full recovery within three months.
People in the study who took the ketogenic pills had an 80 percent chance, according to Dr. Spiegelthalter.
People using the diet pill had an 88 percent chance to recover within two months, while those who took it on a regular basis had a 73 percent chance.
Dr Spiegelhalts study looked at data from more than 20,000 people.
It found that people taking the ketotillers daily were twice as likely to have a full return to kidney function and twice as unlikely to have kidney disease compared with people who did no diet pills.
People on the diet had higher kidney function tests in the three months after the pill was taken and were more likely to get a full or partial recovery, the Mayo Clinic study said.
The ketotillin also helped people with a kidney disease who had been given kidney stone.
Those on the pill had less of a chance of having kidney stone than those on the regular diet.
The pill works by increasing the amount of the enzyme creatinine, which breaks down the waste products in urine.
That makes the urine more alkaline and helps with urine pH, and this helps prevent kidney stone formation.
The pill also increases the levels of other enzymes, including cytochrome P450 3A4, which helps to reduce the amount and size of the kidney stones that occur.
People taking the pill also had fewer kidney stones, even after three months of taking the drug.
It took the pill for people on the ketotic pill for a year and two months to achieve full recovery, and it took people taking ketotills daily for eight months.
Dr Spiegelhalters team was able to identify people who needed to have surgery and those with other health problems that could have prevented them from being able to get the pill safely.
For those who needed a kidney transplant, the pill is a safe and effective treatment option, he said.
“It does have some risk, but this study shows you can have a very healthy life and be able to live without having a kidney.”
