Ketocholanic acids as an adjunct in management of high fat diet allergies

  • John J. Lepore


  1. 1.

    Three cases of allergy to fatty foods are reported.

  2. 2.

    Favorable clinical results were obtained by low-fat diet and Triketol therapy.

  3. 3.

    The clearing of the allergic condition was permanent in spite of return to ingestion of fatty foods without medication. These experiences suggest that the faulty fat metabolism was of a temporary nature.
