Ketosis and Fatty Liver

Fatty Liver

I was doing some searching on PubMed and came across an article describing the benefits of a ketogenic diet for patients with fatty liver and fibrosis.

They placed 5 patients with biopsy proven fatty liver on a ketogenic diet for 6 months and guess what… the mean weight loss was over 25 lbs. ¬†At the end of the study, they did biopsies of the liver, and they found that there was overall improvement in inflammation, degree of fatty liver, and fibrosis.

Pretty amazing isn’t it?

This is probably due to removing the inflammatory influence that chronic carbohydrate ingestion has on the body and liver.

One of the main limitations of the study were that there were only five patients, which isn’t enough statistical power to prove anything.. BUT it does open the door for more research on this subject.

Here is the link to the abstract.
