Clinical Review: Ketogenic Diet


>WHAT IT´S THE KETO DIET? i WAS JUST WACHING A INFOMERCIAL THIS MORNING ABOUT IT. KETO MEANS KETONES WHICH ARE KETO MEANS KETONES WHICH ARE>BASICALLY CHEMICALS THAT YOU MAKE IN YOUR BODY WHEN YOU BURN FAT. IN A MEDICAL SETTING WE SEE THIS IN DIABETICS WHEN THEIR SUGAR IS REALLY HIGH AND THEY CAN’T PROCESS THE SUGAR THAT’S IN THEIR BLOODSTREAM. THEY START TO BURN FAT. THEY CAN HAVE MENTAL STATUS CHANGES.
YOUR BRAIN CAN’T FUNCTION ON ENERGY FROM FAT. IT HAS TO HAVE GLUCOSE. IN TERMS OF HAVING KETONES IN THE BLOOD, THAT’S NOT A GOOD THING.
>I FEEL LIKE I HAVE HEARD THAT TERM SO MUCH. IS IT AFFECTED? EFFECTIVE? PEOPLE ARE USING IT AS A DIET TO LOSE WEIGHT.>I HAVE SEEN A LOT OF BAD FAD DIETS COME AND GO. THE EFFECTS ARE NOT GOOD. IT REALLY ISN’T ANY BETTER THAN ANY OTHER DIET. WITH MOST FAT DIETS YOU GET AN INITIAL WEIGHT LOSS. THE QUESTION IS WHAT HAPPENS AFTER SIX MONTHS OR YEAR.>IF YOU HAVE EPILEPSY A DIET LIKE THIS WOULD BE BENEFICIAL.
IN THE 1920’S THERE WAS SOME RESEARCH SHOWING THAT A KETOGENIC DIET HELPED CHILDREN WITH SEIZURES. THIS IS REALLY ONLY RESTRICTED TO CHILDREN WITH INTRACTABLE SEIZURES.
THERE’S SOME EVIDENCE THAT THAT MAY HELP TO IT IS REALLY NOT SOMETHING PEOPLE SHOULD DO ON THEIR OWN WITHOUT TALKING TO THEIR NEUROLOGIST OR THEIR PEDIATRICIAN
