Carbohydrates are the most crucial nutrient involved in the release of insulin and thereafter for the hormone “leptin” working along with insulin. Leptin is released after the food intake and sends signal to hypothalamus that the hunger desired is met. Leptin receptors are also found to be present in ovaries. Therefore ,low level of insulin in ketogenic diet and associated leptin directly imbalances the women’s hormones. The focus of this review is to highlight the impact of ketones induced by…

Review on Role of Ketogenic Diet and Excessive Workout on Hormonal Imbalances in Women

The focus of this review is to highlight the impact of ketones induced by ketogenic diet or exogenous ketones and stress caused by rigorous physical activity on women’s reproductive health and educate health‐care providers, nutritionists, fitness instructors about the safety and efficacy of ever‐evolving low carb diets.



Ketosis and appetite-mediating nutrients and hormones after weight loss

The circulating concentrations of several hormones and nutrients which influence appetite were altered after weight loss induced by a ketogenic diet, compared with after refeeding.

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

The meaning of physiological ketosis is revisited and whether there are still some preconceived ideas about ketogenic diets, which may be presenting unnecessary barriers to their use as therapeutic tools in the physician's hand are questioned.

Nutrition and Acne: Therapeutic Potential of Ketogenic Diets

The physiological and biochemical effects of the ketogenic diet are examined from this perspective and mechanisms will be proposed via which this type of diet could have a role in the treatment of acne.

The effect of low carbohydrate on energy metabolism

A rapid initial weight loss occurs with a low- carbohydrate diet due to a suppressed appetite, and there is as yet no indication of an increased metabolic rate and an increased thermogenesis by the low-carbohydrate diet.

Is there a role for carbohydrate restriction in the treatment and prevention of cancer?

The possible beneficial effects of low CHO diets on cancer prevention and treatment are addressed, with emphasis on the role of insulin and IGF1 signaling in tumorigenesis as well as altered dietary needs of cancer patients.

An understanding of the role that the energy density of foods plays in the regulation of food intake should lead to better dietary management of hunger and satiety in conditions associated with both over- and underconsumption of energy, such as obesity and anorexia.

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.

The Ketogenic Diet: One Decade Later

The ketogenic diet, a high fat, adequate protein, low carbohydrate diet, has, during the past decade, had a resurgence of interest for the treatment of difficult-to-control seizures in children. This

The Ketogenic Diet: Stoking the Powerhouse of the Cell

Data show that a calorie-restricted KD enhances brain metabolism and proposes an anticonvulsant mechanism of the KD involving mitochondrial biogenesis leading to enhanced alternative energy stores.
