Ketogenic Diet and its Evidence-Based Therapeutic Implementation in Endocrine Diseases.

[Ketogenic Diet and its Evidence-Based Therapeutic Implementation in Endocrine Diseases]. Praxis (Bern 1994). 2019 Jun;108(8):541-553 Authors: Stocker RK, Reber Aubry E, Bally L, Nuoffer JM, Stanga Z Abstract Ketogenic Diet and its Evidence-Based Therapeutic Implementation in Endocrine Diseases Abstract. Abstract: The ketogenic diet (KD) is a high-fat and very low-carb diet, which has been used primarily for treatment of therapy-resistant epilepsy in children. Implementation of the KD in other target populations is increasingly being discussed. This literature review provides first indications for a clinical benefit of the KD in diabetes mellitus type 2 (T2DM) and polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). In many analysed studies, KD led to significant weight loss and had beneficial effects on lipoprotein profile and insulin resistance. In half of the comparative studies with T2DM, the KD lead to signifiantly greater reductions in HbA1c-levels (HbA1c difference: -0.5 to -1.5 %) compared to reference diets (HbA1c difference: +0.2 to -0.5 %). Nevertheless, study results are too heterogenic for a general recommendation of the KD in this patient population. PMID: 31185843 [PubMed - in process]

PPAR Res. 2020;2020:3785137 Authors: Lee YJ, Kim HS, Seo HS, Na JO, Jang YN, Han YM, Kim HM Abstract Cells can shift their metabolism between glycolysis and oxidative phosphorylation to enact their cell fate program in response to external signals. Widely distributed α 1-adrenergic receptors (ARs) are physiologically stimulated during exercise, were reported to associate with the activating energetic AMPK pathway, and are expected to have biological effects beyond their h...

We estimated adjusted hazard ratios (HRs) and 95% confidence intervals (CI) for all-cause mortality using Cox proportional hazard models, and propensity score analyses were performed. We also performed restricted cubic splines to demonstrate the ...

Authors: Magee DE, Singal RK Abstract Our objective is to provide an up-to-date summary of current literature on the indications for androgen deprivation therapy (ADT), ways in which ADT is used, and the main side effects associated with its use. MEDLINE (Pubmed) was searched for relevant papers published from database inception to May 1, 2019 for studies evaluating the use of ADT and its associated adverse events. ADT is a mainstay in the treatment of prostate cancer and is used throughout the disease course. While predominantly used in the metastatic setting, ADT has a role in the treatment of localized disease a...

Abstract Ketogenic diets have been proposed as a non-pharmacological strategy for the management of several chronic conditions. Their efficacy and safety have been evaluated in the field of neurology, oncology and endocrinology for disorders including cancer, dementia, drug-resistant epilepsy, migraines, obesity, polycystic ovary syndrome and type 2 diabetes mellitus. The nutritional requirements of these subjects are expected to differ significantly. Indeed, although all ketogenic diets restrict carbohydrates, each intervention is characterized by a specific daily calorie intake, macronutrient composition and dur...
