Six weeks after completing the modified ketogenic diet, patients had improved Alzheimer disease biomarkers in their cerebrospinal fluid. “With the ketogenic diet, we are moving the β-amyloid in a healthier direction,” Craft said. Patients also had better blood flow to the hippocampus and improved body-wide insulin sensitivity. A larger trial of the modified ketogenic diet is now under way.
This JAMA (a top USA journal) presents some evidence that a ketogenic diet may help prevent diabetes and dementia.
It’s the diet I have been on for years but now more paleo: not high fat.
