Prevention of Obesity Using Low Carbohydrate Ketogenic Diet

  title={Prevention of Obesity Using Low Carbohydrate Ketogenic Diet},
  author={Hussein M. Dashti and Thazhumpal Chacko Mathew},
This review focuses on the effect of low carbohydrate ketogenic diet on obese subjects presenting with various metabolic syndromes. Here, we provide data from our laboratory and from various other investigators on the therapeutic effectiveness of ketogenic diet on obese subjects. In this review we provide the rationale behind using ketogenic diet as a treatment of obesity and its beneficial role in neurodegenerative / neurological disorders, diabetes, hyperlipidemia, coronary diseases, cancer… 

Effect of Overweight and Obesity on Postprandial Lipemia among the Subjects with Type 2 Diabetes

The management and loss of weight still indispensible for type 2 diabetic subjects especially overweight and obese women one to avoid postprandial hypertriglyceridemia and its complications mainly coronary heart disease.

Statin therapy is not warranted for a person with high LDL-cholesterol on a low-carbohydrate diet.

The review of the literature indicates that statin therapy for both primary and secondary prevention of CVD is not warranted for individuals on an LCD with elevated LDL-C who have achieved a low triglyceride/HDL ratio.

Development of an Integrated Optical Sensor for Determination of β-Hydroxybutyrate Within the Microplatform

βHB was chosen as a model molecule for developing an optical sensor–integrated microplatform and the proposed system will allow on-site and early intervention, and measurements performed with the designed integrated microplatform were found significant.



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.

A review of low-carbohydrate ketogenic diets

In response to the emerging epidemic of obesity in the United States, a renewal of interest in alternative diets has occurred, especially in diets that limit carbohydrate intake. Recent research has

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.

Ketogenic diet modifies the risk factors of heart disease in obese patients.

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.

The Ketogenic Diet

The ketogenic diet is an efficacious and relatively safe treatment of intractable seizures, and much remains unknown about the diet, including its mechanisms of action, the optimal protocol, and the full range of its applicability.

The case for low carbohydrate diets in diabetes management

Evidence from various randomized controlled trials in recent years shows low carbohydrate diets to be comparable or better than traditional low fat high carbohydrate diets for weight reduction, improvement in the dyslipidemia of diabetes and metabolic syndrome as well as control of blood pressure, postprandial glycemia and insulin secretion.

Nutrition in patients with Type 2 diabetes: are low‐carbohydrate diets effective, safe or desirable?

There is now mounting evidence that these diets can lead to effective weight loss and may thus be a useful intervention for patients who have, or are at risk of, diabetes.

Effect of a Low-Carbohydrate Diet on Appetite, Blood Glucose Levels, and Insulin Resistance in Obese Patients with Type 2 Diabetes

The effects of a strict low-carbohydrate diet, which included the diet supplements recommended by Dr. Atkins, on energy intake and expenditure, body weight and body water, glucose metabolism, and insulin sensitivity in obese patients with type 2 diabetes in the controlled environment of a clinical research center are determined.

A low-carbohydrate, ketogenic diet to treat type 2 diabetes

The LCKD improved glycemic control in patients with type 2 diabetes such that diabetes medications were discontinued or reduced in most participants.
