Meta‐analysis was conducted to clarify the effect of low‐carbohydrate diet (LCD) on renal function in patients with type 2 diabetes. An extensive literature search was conducted on scientific databases including PubMed, Scopus, and Cochrane Library until September 2017. Only controlled trials on human subjects written in English were included in this meta‐analysis. Several markers of renal function were compared between subjects who adopted an LCD or control diet, including estimated glomerular… 
Retrospective cohort study of changes in estimated glomerular filtration rate for patients prescribed a low carb diet
For patients with mildly reduced and moderately to severely reduced kidney function who were prescribed an LCD, their estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) was either unchanged or improved, and for those without diabetes, greater weight loss was associated with improved eGFR.
Are low‐carbohydrate diets safe in diabetic and nondiabetic chronic kidney disease?
Empiric evidence supporting the kidney‐related benefits or risks of LC diets is needed to understand the balance of these potential harms and benefits for patients with DKD.
Protein intake is not associated with progression of diabetic kidney disease in patients without macroalbuminuria
This work sought to clarify the association between dietary protein intake and changes in the urinary albumin excretion or estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) in patients with type 2 diabetes.
Diabetes and the Nutrition and Diets for Its Prevention and Treatment: A Systematic Review and Dietetic Perspective
The systematic review widely focused on diabetes and the developments in nutrition and diets required to prevent or control all types of diabetes. Diabetes is characterized by high blood sugar level
An evidence‐based approach to developing low‐carbohydrate diets for type 2 diabetes management: A systematic review of interventions and methods
To identify core diet and delivery components of low‐carbohydrate (CHO) diets that have demonstrated efficacy for type 2 diabetes (T2D) management, a meta-analysis of 12 CHO diets found five of them to be effective.
The systematic review focused on nutritional diseases, nutrient toxicities, nutrients deficiency diseases, and the diets for health living. Nutritional diseases include obesity and eating disorders,
Reversal of diabetic tractional retinal detachment attributed to keto diet
It was found that there was complete resolution of macular detachment due to TRD in the left eye with stable vision during this 2-year follow-up visit, attributed to the impactful ketogenic diet.
One size does not fit all: Nutrition strategies for people with diabetes.
The effectiveness of popular eating patterns and nutrition strategies, as well as the role of nurses in facilitating informed patient choices and decisions, are detailed.


Impact of low-carbohydrate diet on renal function: a meta-analysis of over 1000 individuals from nine randomised controlled trials
In the present meta-analysis, it is identified that the increase in eGFR was greater in LCD compared with the control diet in overweight and obese individuals without CKD.
Efficacy of low carbohydrate diet for type 2 diabetes mellitus management: A systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials.
The results suggested a beneficial effect of LCD intervention on glucose control in patients with type 2 diabetes, and a positive effect on triglycerides and HDL cholesterol concentrations, but without significant effect on long term weight loss.
Comparison of High vs. Normal/Low Protein Diets on Renal Function in Subjects without Chronic Kidney Disease: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
HP diets were associated with increased GFR, serum urea, urinary calcium excretion, and serum concentrations of uric acid, which should be handled with caution in the light of the high risk of kidney disease among obese.
Long-Term Effects of a Very Low Carbohydrate Compared With a High Carbohydrate Diet on Renal Function in Individuals With Type 2 Diabetes
Compared with a traditional HC weight loss diet, consumption of an LC high protein diet does not adversely affect clinical markers of renal function in obese adults with T2DM and no preexisting kidney disease.
Restricted-carbohydrate diets in patients with type 2 diabetes: a meta-analysis.
Meta-regression analyses show that hemoglobin A1c, fasting glucose, and some lipid fractions (triglycerides) improved with lower carbohydrate-content diets, and overall effect on weight was equivocal among the studies evaluated in this meta-analysis.
Systematic review and meta‐analysis of clinical trials of the effects of low carbohydrate diets on cardiovascular risk factors
A systematic review and meta‐analysis showed the LCD to be associated with significant decreases in body weight, as well as an increase in high‐density lipoprotein cholesterol and creatinine, whereas limited data exist concerning plasma uric acid.
Low-Carbohydrate Diets and All-Cause Mortality: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Observational Studies
Low-carbohydrate diets were associated with a significantly higher risk of all-cause mortality and they were not significantly associated with the risk of CVD mortality and incidence.
Weight-loss diets in people with type 2 diabetes and renal disease: a randomized controlled trial of the effect of different dietary protein amounts.
Weight loss improved renal function, but differences in dietary protein had no effect, and the baseline GFR remained a significant predictor of outcomes with no effect of dietary treatment.
Short‐term effects of a low carbohydrate diet on glycaemic variables and cardiovascular risk markers in patients with type 1 diabetes: A randomized open‐label crossover trial
The LCD resulted in more time in euglycaemia, less time in hypoglycaemia and less glucose variability than the HCD, without altering mean glucose levels.
The interpretation and effect of a low-carbohydrate diet in the management of type 2 diabetes: a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomised controlled trials
Reducing dietary carbohydrate may produce clinical improvements in the management of type 2 diabetes and further research is needed to understand the true effect of dietary carbohydrate restriction on HbA1c.
