Is the Keto Diet Effective? with Dr. Mark Hyman

I think ketogenic diets at scale are just, you know, starting to emerge.
We know they can be short-term therapeutic diets that can be extremely powerful.
For example, a recent study showed that in Type 2 diabetics in a year of a ketogenic diet
they can reverse- completely reverse- Type 2 Diabetes in 60% of the people.
This is not something that’s done in any way in traditional medicine. Second is
they got 100% of people off the main diabetes medication, 94% off insulin or a lowered insulin, and
the weight loss was 12%, an average of 30 pounds, which is unprecedented in medical weight loss studies.
So this is a profoundly powerful intervention. It can be effective in Alzheimer’s, it can be effective in brain cancer.
It can be effective in autism, in Parkinson’s disease. It’s a very powerful intervention.
So that’s a way, you know, ketogenic diets can be therapeutic in the short term. I think long term we have to still see.
