Short-term weight loss and hepatic triglyceride reduction: evidence of a metabolic advantage with dietary carbohydrate restriction

URL: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3076656/ Journal: American Journal of Clinical Nutrition Publication Date: 05/2011 Summary: Individuals with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) have excess intrahepatic triglycerides. This is due, in part, to increased hepatic synthesis of fat from carbohydrates via lipogenesis. Although weight loss is currently recommended to treat NAFLD, little attention has been given to dietary carbohydrate restriction. The …

Is the restricted ketogenic diet a viable alternative to the standard of care for managing malignant brain cancer?

URL: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0920121111002063?via%3Dihub Journal: Epilepsy Research Publication Date: 07/2012 Summary: Malignant brain cancer persists as a major disease of morbidity and mortality. The failure to recognize brain cancer as a disease of energy metabolism has contributed in large part to the failure in management. As long as brain tumor cells have access to glucose and glutamine, the …

Effect of low-calorie versus low-carbohydrate ketogenic diet in type 2 diabetes

URL: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0899900712000731?via%3Dihub Journal: Nutrition Publication Date: 10/2012 Summary: Effective diabetic management requires reasonable weight control. Previous studies from our laboratory have shown the beneficial effects of a low-carbohydrate ketogenic diet (LCKD) in patients with type 2 diabetes after its long term administration. Furthermore, it favorably alters the cardiac risk factors even in hyperlipidemic obese subjects. These studies …
