Description

A Low Carbohydrate, Ketogenic Diet for Treatment

of Type II Diabetes: An Integrative Literature Review

Steven Lisowski

Faculty Sponsor: Larry Maturin

Abstract

Background: Dietary modifications are commonly prescribed initial interventions in those recently diagnosed with type II diabetes. Presently, various researchers support that there is a growing body of evidence that advises to restrict carbohydrate intake to minimum levels to achieve optimal blood glucose levels and reduce complications related to poor diabetes management.

Objectives: To explore if the low carbohydrate, ketogenic diets (LCKD), in which carbohydrate intake of any kind is restricted, are very effective at reducing obesity and controlling diabetes.

Methods: This integrative literature review was conducted using keywords “ketogenic” and “diabetes” to search the literature between 2007 and 2017.

Results: This study found a synthesis across studies in the review of literature in relation to the low carbohydrate high fat diet approach showing the ketogenic low carbohydrate high fat diet is extremely effective in reducing hyperglycemia and associated risks.

Conclusions: Use of the ketogenic low carbohydrate high fat diet may be an effective approach toward control of type II diabetes.

Keywords: Ketogenic and diabetes
