Ketogenic diets have been historically used to treat epilepsy in the past. For the first time, a low carb ketogenic diet has been bought up in mainstream media. ABC has made a report on a study done on mice. The study suggests that a low carb, ketogenic diet may reverse kidney disease and get someone off dialysis.
Now I’m not a fan of news publications, but the fact that a ketogenic diet is in the headlines for something seems promising. For future researchers, don’t try this at home. Scientific publications are the real deal, not media publications. The study quoted in this publication was very interesting, but inconclusive. It’s another animal studies. I don’t know how many mice like to eat ketogenic or how they had kidney failure to begin with.
It would be really interesting seeing how they hook up a mouse to dialysis though!
If any of you are have loved ones or you, yourselves suffer from kidney problems, it may be worth looking into. Here is the link below if you’re interested.
