In recent times the use of high fat ketogenic diet as a treatment strategy in some diseases and weight control has been on the increase. This study aims to elucidate the effect of high fat ketogenic diet on some renal and liver parameters. Forty albino rats were used and divided into four groups. Group A was control; B, C, and D were fed with diets including butter, coconut oil and olive oil respectively for eight weeks. Urine and serum samples were assayed spectrophotometrically. There was a…

Effects of low carbohydrate high fat Nigerian-like diet on biochemical indices in rabbits.
The effects of a low carbohydrate high fat Nigerian like diet on lipoprotein levels, serum electrolytes, liver and renal functions were investigated. The diet consist of 28% carbohydrate and 35% fat
Effect of a high-protein, low-carbohydrate diet on blood glucose control in people with type 2 diabetes.
A LoBAG diet ingested for 5 weeks dramatically reduced the circulating glucose concentration in people with untreated type 2 diabetes, and potentially could be a patient-empowering way to ameliorate hyperglycemia without pharmacological intervention.
Study on Biochemical Indices of Liver Function Tests of Albino Rats Supplemented with Three Sources of Vegetable Oils
Results indicate a compromise in liver of rats administered 10% oil - based diet, and show mild inflammation of the liver.
A low-carbohydrate as compared with a low-fat diet in severe obesity.
Severely obese subjects with a high prevalence of diabetes or the metabolic syndrome lost more weight during six months on a carbohydrate- restricted diet than on a calorie- and fat-restricted diet, with a relative improvement in insulin sensitivity and triglyceride levels, even after adjustment for the amount of weight lost.
Long-term ketogenic diet causes glucose intolerance and reduced β- and α-cell mass but no weight loss in mice.
The data show that long-term KD causes dyslipidemia, a proinflammatory state, signs of hepatic steatosis, glucose intolerance, and a reduction in β- and α-cell mass, but no weight loss, which indicates thatLong-term high-fat, low-carbohydrate KD lead to features that are also associated with the metabolic syndrome and an increased risk for type 2 diabetes in humans.
The effects of high‐fat diet on the renal structure and morphometric parametric of kidneys in rats
It is concluded that a fatty diet is responsible for the rats’ obesity and may lead to renal deformities as a result of histopathological changes such as dilatation, tubular defects, inflammation and connective tissue enlargement of the kidney.
Reversal of Diabetic Nephropathy by a Ketogenic Diet
It is demonstrated that diabetic nephropathy can be reversed by a relatively simple dietary intervention, and whether reduced glucose metabolism mediates the protective effects of the ketogenic diet remains to be determined.
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.
Dietary protein, weight loss, and weight maintenance.
This review provides an overview of how sustaining absolute protein intake affects metabolic targets for weight loss and weight maintenance during negative energy balance, i.e., sustaining satiety and energy expenditure and sparing fat-free mass, resulting in energy inefficiency.
