Very low-carbohydrate (ketogenic) diets are popular yet little is known regarding the effects on serum biomarkers for cardiovascular disease (CVD). This study examined the effects of a 6-wk ketogenic diet on fasting and postprandial serum biomarkers in 20 normal-weight, normolipidemic men. Twelve men switched from their habitual diet (17% protein, 47% carbohydrate and 32% fat) to a ketogenic diet (30% protein, 8% carbohydrate and 61% fat) and eight control subjects consumed their habitual diet… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Very low-carbohydrate and low-fat diets affect fasting lipids and postprandial lipemia differently in overweight men.

The very low-carbohydrate diet was more effective at improving characteristics of the metabolic syndrome as shown by a decrease in fasting serum TAG, the TAG/HDL-C ratio, postprandial lipemia, serum glucose, an increase in LDL particle size, and also greater weight loss.

Long-term effects of a ketogenic diet in obese patients.

The present study shows the beneficial effects of a long-term ketogenic diet, which significantly reduced the body weight and body mass index of the patients and decreased the level of triglycerides, LDL cholesterol and blood glucose, and increased thelevel of HDL cholesterol.

Beneficial effects of ketogenic diet in obese diabetic subjects

This study shows the beneficial effects of ketogenic diet in obese diabetic subjects following its long-term administration and demonstrates that in addition to its therapeutic value, low carbohydrate diet is safe to use for a longer period of time in obesity diabetic subjects.

An isoenergetic very low carbohydrate diet improves serum HDL cholesterol and triacylglycerol concentrations, the total cholesterol to HDL cholesterol ratio and postprandial pipemic responses compared with a low fat diet in normal weight, normolipidemic women.

In normal weight, normolipidemic women, a short-term very low carbohydrate diet modestly increased LDL-C, yet there were favorable effects on cardiovascular disease risk status by virtue of a relatively larger increase in HDL-C and a decrease in fasting and postprandial triacylglycerols.

The very low-carbohydrate diet was more effective at improving characteristics of the metabolic syndrome as shown by a decrease in fasting serum TAG, the TAG/HDL-C ratio, postprandial lipemia, serum glucose, an increase in LDL particle size, and also greater weight loss.

A Ketogenic Low-Carbohydrate High-Fat Diet Increases LDL Cholesterol in Healthy, Young, Normal-Weight Women: A Randomized Controlled Feeding Trial

The data suggest that feeding healthy, young, normal-weight women a ketogenic LCHF diet induces a deleterious blood lipid profile, and the elevated LDL cholesterol should be a cause for concern in young, healthy,normal- Weight women following this kind of LCHf diet.

Long Term Effects of Ketogenic Diet in Obese Subjects with High Cholesterol Level

The effect of ketogenic diet in obese subjects with high cholesterol level above 6 mmol/L is compared to those with normocholesterolemia for a period of 56 weeks and demonstrates that low carbohydrate diet is safe to use for a longer period of time in obesity subjects with a high total cholesterol level and those with normal cholesterol level.

Comparison of The Effect of Ketogenic Diet and Low Caloric Diet On Weight Loss in Iranian Obese and Overweight Children

It seems that both diets had similar effect on weight loss in overweight and obese children and the low caloric diet had more potential beneficial effect on body fat percentage and lipid profile than ketogenic diet.

High dietary fat promotes syndrome X in nonobese rats.

The conclusion that, in the absence of weight loss, a high fat, low carbohydrate diet not only may be ineffective in decreasing risk factors for cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes but may promote the development of disease in previously lower risk, nonobese individuals is supported.

An NCEP II diet reduces postprandial triacylglycerol in normocholesterolemic adults.

Under free-living conditions, a NCEP II diet was associated with weight loss and a decrease in postprandial but not fasting TAG, and thorough assessment of a dietary intervention should include measurements of postPRandial TAG.

Dietary fat content alters insulin-mediated glucose metabolism in healthy men.

A high-fat, low-carbohydrate intake reduces the ability of insulin to suppress endogenous glucose production and alters the relation between oxidative and nonoxidative glucose disposal in a way that favors storage of glucose.

Why Do Low-Fat High-Carbohydrate Diets Accentuate Postprandial Lipemia in Patients With NIDDM?

A low-fat high-CHO diet in patients with NIDDM led to higher day-long plasma glucose, insulin, and TG concentrations; postprandial accumulation of TG-rich lipoproteins of intestinal origin; and increased postheparin lipoprotein lipase activity, which provides a mechanism for the hypertriglycer-idemic effect of CHO-enriched diets.

Fasting Lipoprotein and Postprandial Triacylglycerol Responses to a Low-Carbohydrate Diet Supplemented with n-3 Fatty Acids

A hypocaloric low-carbohydrate diet rich in MUFA and supplemented with n-3 fatty acids significantly reduced postabsorptive and postprandial TG in men that were not hypertriglyceridemic as a group before the diet, viewed as a clinically significant positive adaptation in terms of cardiovascular risk status.

Effects of a high-fat diet on postabsorptive and postprandial testosterone responses to a fat-rich meal.

Alternative mechanisms (eg, higher uptake at the receptor level of cells) other than chylomicron-induced or insulin-induced inhibition of steroidogenesis are likely responsible for the reduction in TT and FT after a fat-rich meal.

Effects of high-protein, low-carbohydrate dieting on plasma lipoproteins and body weight.

Associations of hepatic and lipoprotein lipase activities with changes in dietary composition and low density lipoprotein subclasses.

Increased levels of small dense LDL are associated with a metabolic state characterized by relatively increased hepatic lipase and decreased lipoprotein lipase activity, but changes in these enzymes do not appear to be primary determinants of diet-induced changes in levels of this LDL subfraction.

The current evidence suggests that this locus, APOE, might be responsible for some of the inter-individual variability in dietary response, and other loci, including APOA4, APOA1, APOB, APOC3, LPL and CETP have also been found to account forSome of the variability in the fasting and fed states.
