WEIGHT- THE INDIAN SCENARIO

Dr. Nathan's Original Article on Polyunsaturated Fatty Acid Based Ketogenic Diet Published in an International Journal


A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR
TO ALL OUR COLLEAGUES AND
ESPECIALLY OUR PATIENTS AND THEIR CAREGIVERS 
WHO TEACH US MORE THAN ANY BOOK CAN!

Our original article on a unique improved version of the classical ketogenic diet using a high polyunsaturated fatty acid ketogenic diet in place of the commonly used mixed fat ketogenic diet has been published and is available on Pubmed. In this we have shown that we can achieve an increase in seizure reduction in a cohort of patients who had reached a plateau or failed to achieve good control on a mixed fat ketogenic diet.
Please read the article and most importantly please rate the article on the link given below. Rating the article gives the article more visibility and enthuse us to further push our research frontiers.
Our next original article will be on our successful trial on not only halting but also reversing the relentless progression in a neurodegenerative disorder, namely, Progressive Supranuclear Palsy or more commonly known as PSP or Parkinson’s plus. Could this be a forerunner for halting other neurodegenerative disorders?

Perils of Self-administered Ketogenic Diets for Weight loss


Hello Everyone,
Ketogenic diets (KD) and other low carbohydrate diets have become popular for weight loss and fitness. A word of caution – these should be prescribed with physician guidance something not always seen in this unregulated ‘fitness’ industry.  Also, with the availability of several do-it-yourself guides on social media many are tempted to try these methods without any professional guidance from a qualified dietitian or nutritionist. We describe one case where there was a serious health problem following use of the KD with prolonged fasting.
