I think that diet is important, and I have a personal interest in many of these approaches to nutrition, but what I share with patients is mostly my informed opinion based on as much science as possible. The main issue is that ketosis is arguably a backup mechanism for fuel and energy for the body, he says. Higher HDL cholesterol levels and lowering blood sugar are also associated with lower risk of heart disease. Still, there are potential downsides that patients need to watch out for, Chokshi says. Keto entails a significant portion of calories from fat, but not all fats are created equal. There is one recent long-term study suggesting a risk for heart disease. They found patients who followed a diet low in carbohydrates for nearly two decades had an increased risk for atrial fibrillation. But there are important caveats to consider. The researchers proposed that those at risk were probably eating fewer vegetables, fruits, and grains, which are known for being inflammation-fighting foods. And inflammation is a known risk factor for AFib. For most people, I encourage that.
Scher is unable to give medical advice on his blog. That alone has been a very interesting change. I love the keto diet, but all the bad press also scares me. Founded years ago as a nonprofit hospital, National Jewish Health today is the only facility in the world tath is dedicated exclusively to groundbreaking medical research and treatment of patients with respiratory, cardiac, immune, and related disorders.

Hi Liz. On no meds. Proteins comprise 20 percent — and carbohydrates make up just 5 percent. Btw, why do you have an apple on your logo when its not low-carb? Further research is needed to confirm these benefits and assess risk before keto is clinically recommended for patients with diabetes. Scher, what are your thoughts on oatmeal.
