Implications of the Ketogenic Diet on Metabolic Syndrome

  title={Implications of the Ketogenic Diet on Metabolic Syndrome},
  author={Jarad Blanton},
Metabolic syndrome (MetS) is a condition defined as a clustering of risk factors that is strongly associated with obesity, heart disease, and diabetes (Kahn, Buse, Ferrannini, & Stern, 2005). The prevalence of MetS has reached epidemic levels globally. It is estimated that 20% to 25% of the adult global population has MetS (Alic, 2018). MetS is diagnosed when three of the five risk factors are present. The risk factors are a large waistline (abdominal obesity), high triglyceride level, low HDL…

More research is needed on the fad diet and metabolic syndrome; however, authors are concerned about public health safety.



Carbohydrate Restriction has a More Favorable Impact on the Metabolic Syndrome than a Low Fat Diet

The findings provide support for unifying the disparate markers of MetS and for the proposed intimate connection with dietary carbohydrate in a 12-week study comparing two hypocaloric diets.

A pilot study of the Spanish Ketogenic Mediterranean Diet: an effective therapy for the metabolic syndrome.

It is concluded that the SKMD could be an effective and safe way to cure patients suffering from metabolic syndrome and should be included in longer-term use and a comparison with other ketogenic diets.

Comparison of definitions for the metabolic syndrome in adolescents. The HELENA study

Comparing the most frequently used definitions of metabolic syndrome in adolescents showed that they do not indicate the same adolescents as having metabolic syndrome, and prevalence varied between diagnostic methods.

The metabolic syndrome: time for a critical appraisal

Clinicians should evaluate and treat all CVD risk factors without regard to whether a patient meets the criteria for diagnosis of the ‘metabolic syndrome’, because too much critically important information is missing to warrant its designation as a ‘syndrome’.

Triglycerides and cardiovascular disease: a scientific statement from the American Heart Association.

Clinicians are updated on the increasingly crucial role of triglycerides in the evaluation and management of CVD risk and highlight approaches aimed at minimizing the adverse public health–related consequences associated with hypertriglyceridemic states.

Treatment of Diabetes and Diabetic Complications With a Ketogenic Diet

Limiting both protein and carbohydrates as in a classic ketogenic diet remarkably reduces blood glucose in animal models of type 1 and type 2 diabetes and reverses diabetic nephropathy.

Beyond weight loss: a review of the therapeutic uses of very-low-carbohydrate (ketogenic) diets

The meaning of physiological ketosis is revisited, possible mechanisms for the therapeutic actions of the ketogenic diet on different diseases are considered and some preconceived ideas about ketogenic diets are questioned.

Diagnosis and Management of the Metabolic Syndrome: An American Heart Association/National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute Scientific Statement

This statement from the American Heart Association and the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute is intended to provide up-to-date guidance for professionals on the diagnosis and management of the metabolic syndrome in adults.

Comparison of a very low-calorie-ketogenic diet with a standard low-calorie diet in the treatment of obesity

In a group of obese patients, the VLCK diet was significantly more effective than a standard LC diet and lean mass was well preserved at one year follow-up.

A Low-Carbohydrate, Ketogenic Diet versus a Low-Fat Diet To Treat Obesity and Hyperlipidemia

Body weight, body composition, serum lipid levels, and adverse effects over 24 weeks in hyperlipidemic persons who were randomly assigned to follow a low-carbohydrate, ketogenic, or low-fat, low-cholesterol, reduced-calorie diet are examined.
