OBJECTIVE To assess the clinical, immunological and hormonal effects of carbohydrate restriction in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients via the provision of a ketogenic diet. METHODS Thirteen RA patients with active disease consumed a ketogenic diet for 7 days, providing the estimated requirements for energy and protein whilst restricting their carbohydrate intake to < 40 g/day. This was followed by a 2-week re-feeding period. Clinical and laboratory evaluations were carried out on days 0, 7… CONTINUE READING
