Patients on a keto diet may significantly reduce their risk of heart disease, while losing weight and improving blood sugar, blood pressure, and other metabolic markers.
The latest study to show this is a new small pilot study published in Metabolites. The research team, including keto weight loss expert Dr. Tro Kalayjian, partnered with a local manufacturing plant. They signed up interested employees with obesity and higher risk of cardiovascular disease to follow a weight loss and metabolic health program with carbohydrate reduction for six months.
Of the 10 patients who followed the program for six months, patients averaged a 44% reduction in their relative cardiovascular risk. Not only that, but the average weight loss was 38 pounds (17 kilos) and significant money was saved on prescription drug costs."
