Dr. Sarah Hallberg: Can a ketogenic diet help fatty liver disease?

– Sure, so is a low carb,
high fat plan beneficial
to people with fatty liver?
– Excellent, so we are gonna be publishing
a paper on this very soon.
And so the quick answer is yes, okay?
So fatty liver disease
can be immensely helped
for patients who are
following a ketogenic diet.
It’s actually amazing just
how common fatty liver disease
is in this country and around the world.
And it can be a big problem,
leading to cirrhosis
and even liver failure for many people.
And so again, I will speak to the results
of our large clinical trial,
but we saw dramatic reductions
in liver function tests
in patients who were following
a ketogenic diet for a year.
And their fibrosis scores improved,
and just kind of all
around exciting results
when it comes to fatty liver disease.
