    Default Scientific Review Of Keto Diets Falls Short For Accuracy

    A recent review article aims to summarize the evidence-based benefits and potential shortcomings of a keto diet. Conclusions from this review state that keto may be helpful for weight loss in the short term — but that it may not be good for other health factors in the long term.

Runyan and Scher,, they FINALLY touch on the water drinking kidney health matter in the subtitle near the bottom of the page, "Low-carb diets and the risk of kidney stones", in the very last paragraph: "These factors include not drinking enough water,..."
