In brief: Probably okay

I don't know of any contraindications to high protein, low carb diet in nf type 1 or 2.
However, still trust the advice of your neurologist, and of course be sure you don't have any other health conditions that could contraindicate this diet (liver disease, e.g.). Enjoy your healthy lifestyle, and good luck!

Some people with nf1 have issues with bone mineralization and vitamin d deficiency.Food restrictions may occur because of other health issues with liver, pancreas, etc.
