Jeff Volek m.fl. släppte tidigare i år en intressant sammanfattande studie som handlar om terapeutisk användning av VLCD (ketogena dieter). Förhoppningsvis är den av intresse för flera än undertecknad här på forumet.

 

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

 

Abstrakt: Very-low-carbohydrate diets or ketogenic diets have been in use since the 1920s as a therapy for epilepsy and can, in some cases, completely remove the need for medication. From the 1960s onwards they have become widely known as one of the most common methods for obesity treatment. Recent work over the last decade or so has provided evidence of the therapeutic potential of ketogenic diets in many pathological conditions, such as diabetes, polycystic ovary syndrome, acne, neurological diseases, cancer and the amelioration of respiratory and cardiovascular disease risk factors. The possibility that modifying food intake can be useful for reducing or eliminating pharmaceutical methods of treatment, which are often lifelong with significant side effects, calls for serious investigation. This review revisits the meaning of physiological ketosis in the light of this evidence and considers possible mechanisms for the therapeutic actions of the ketogenic diet on different diseases. The present review also questions 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.

Jag har helt missat denna tråd. Har precis upptäckt herrarna Volek o Phinney, en fantastisk källa till kunskap om ketogen kost. Skall försöka läsa din länk och hoppas på att engelskan är hyfsat lätttillgänglig  ;) .

Bra att tråden kom till någon nytta! Volek och Phinney hör till lågkolhydratsvärldens absoluta elit eftersom de inte bara tycker/presenterar/vidarekommunicerar (vilket iofs också har sin poäng) utan de leverar seriös forskning.

Phinney lever dessutom sitt budskap. Vet inte hur det är med Volek?
