Introduction: Metabolic syndrome is a major public health problem affecting at least 20% of the world’s adult population. Components of the metabolic syndrome include obesity, impaired glucose metabolism, hypertension and altered lipid profile. Currently, medical treatment relies on drugs. A major problem is that patients with long-standing disease are excessively medicated because of an increase in the number of symptoms over time. A few clinical studies indicate that low-carbohydrate diets… Expand
A child with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) successfully treated with the Paleolithic ketogenic diet: A 19-month insulin-freedom
TLDR
A nineyear-old child with T1DM who initially was on an insulin regime with high carbohydrate diet then was put on the Paleolithic ketogenic diet and following dietary shift glucose levels normalized and he was able to discontinue insulin, ensuring normoglycemia without the use of insulin. Expand
Treatment of Rectal Cancer with the Paleolithic Ketogenic Diet: A 24-months Follow-up
TLDR
With using the paleolithic ketogenic diet the patient was able to postpone surgery for two years, and with incomplete dietary adherence, disease seemed to be stable but symptoms suggested progression for the last few months of the follow-up. Expand
Crohn's disease successfully treated with the paleolithic ketogenic diet
TLDR
The paleolithic ketogenic diet was feasible, effective and safe in the present case and resulted in resolution of symptoms, normalized laboratory parameters as well as gradual normalization of bowel inflammation. Expand
The paleolithic ketogenic diet may ensure adequate serum magnesium levels
Author(s): Clemens, Zsofia, Dr. | Abstract: Introduction Magnesium plays an essential role in several enzymatic reactions. Its deficiency is known to be widespread and has been associated with aExpand
Short-term effects of a Paleolithic lifestyle intervention in breast cancer patients undergoing radiotherapy: a pilot and feasibility study
TLDR
This pilot study shows that adoption of a PL intervention during curative radiotherapy of breast cancer patients is feasible and able to reduce fat mass and daily outdoor activity could eliminate vitamin D deficiency (vitamin D < 20 ng/ml). Expand
Gilbert’s Syndrome Successfully Treated with the Paleolithic Ketogenic Diet
TLDR
A case of GS is presented where high level of total and direct bilirubin, yellowish discoloration of the sclera as well as associated symptoms including migraine, fatigue and granulomatosus dermatitis were reversed following a shift toward the popular paleolithic and then toward the paleolithic ketogenic diet. Expand
NREM-sleep Associated Epileptiform Discharges Disappeared Following a Shift toward the Paleolithic Ketogenic Diet in a Child with Extensive Cortical Malformation
TLDR
A case of a child with frequent epileptiform discharges confined to non-rapid-eye-movement (NREM) sleep and extensive cortical malformation is reported, which concludes that the paleolithic ketogenic diet was effective, safe and feasible in this case. Expand
Complete Cessation of Recurrent Cervical Intraepithelial Neoplasia (CIN) by the Paleolithic Ketogenic Diet: A Case Report
TLDR
The paleolithic ketogenic diet combines benefits of both paleolithic and classical ketogenic diets, while excluding their disadvantages, and is believed to be effective and safe in this patient. Expand
Vitamin C and Disease: Insights from the Evolutionary Perspective
TLDR
It is put forward that an evolutionary adapted human diet based on meat, fat and offal would provide enough vitamin C to cover physiological needs and to ward off diseases associated with vitamin C deficiency. Expand
Halted Progression of Soft Palate Cancer in a Patient Treated with the Paleolithic Ketogenic Diet Alone: A 20-months Follow-up
TLDR
The paleolithic ketogenic diet resulted in a halted progression of the tumor as evidenced by imaging follow-up and the patient is on the diet for 20 months, without symptoms and side effects. Expand
