This study is about the long term effects of a ketosis diet in obese patients. Various studies show the effects of a keto diet. Obesity is what particularly there in today’s people.


To determine the effects of a 24-week keto diet, containing 30 grams of carbs. It also has healthy fats, a good amount of protein, and mineral-rich food.

To check the effects of a keto diet on the patients of obesity.

Patients And Methods

In the present study 83 people( 39 men, 44 people), are present for this test. With a  mass index of around 39 kg/.metre sq, and high glucose and cholesterol levels were selected.

Changes in these parameters were monitored after eight, 16, and 24 weeks of treatment. People following these diets are in consideration. How this diet works on the people following this diet. Is it long-lasting or leaves short-term effects on the people.

Conclusions for Obesity patients

The present study shows the beneficial effects of a long-term ketogenic diet. It significantly reduced the body weight and body mass index of the patients. Furthermore, it decreased the level of triglycerides, LDL cholesterol, and blood glucose, and increased the level of HDL cholesterol. Administering a ketogenic diet for a relatively long period of time did not produce any significant side effects in the patients. Therefore, the present study confirms that it is safe to use a ketogenic diet for a longer period of time than previously demonstrated.

The process

Obesity has become a serious chronic disease in both developing and developed countries. Furthermore, It shows that with a variety of chronic diseases. It estimates that in the United States alone approximately 3500000 people die each year. People die from obesity-related diseases. Different methods for reducing weight using reduced calorie and fat intake combined with exercise have failed to show sustained long-term effects. Recent studies from various laboratories including our own have shown that a high-fat diet rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids (ketogenic diet) is quite effective in reducing body weight and the risk factors for various chronic diseases.

The keto diet is from long ago in 1920. In this diet, the fat to carbohydrate ratio is 5:1. It shows a significant decrease in the weight of obese patients who were on a ketogenic diet. As the reverse occurred when the diet changed to one high in carbohydrates.

It shows that the concept that fat we eat ad libitum and still induce weight loss in obese subjects is not a recent one. Ketosis occurs as a result of the change in the body’s fuel from carbohydrates to fat. It shows that high-fat diets may lead to the development of obesity.

Incomplete oxidation of fatty acids by the liver results in the accumulation of ketone bodies in the body. A ketogenic diet maintains the body in a state of ketosis, which is characterized by an elevation of D-b-hydroxybutyrate and acetoacetate.

Mild Ketosis/ keto

Mild ketosis is a natural phenomenon that occurs in humans during fasting. It also has lactation ketosis is a well-known phenomenon in mammals. Although most of the changes in the physiological parameters induced following exercise revert back to their normal values rapidly, the level of circulating ketone bodies increases for a few hours after muscular activity ceases. It shows that in trained individuals, a low blood ketone level protects against the development of hypoglycemia during prolonged intermittent exercise. In addition, ketosis has a significant influence on suppressing hunger. Thus, a ketogenic meals is a good regulator of the body’s calorie intake and mimics the effect of starvation in the body.

It shows that high-fat diets may lead to the development of obesity. It also says that several other diseases such as coronary artery disease, diabetes, and cancer are viral. This is regarding the study about animals that were given a high-fat diet rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids. The observation concludes the risk factors for heart disease in obese patients

Although various short-term studies examining the effect of a ketogenic meal. Therefore, the aim of the study is to investigate the long-term effects of a ketogenic meals on obesity. It also focuses on obesity-associated risk factors in a large population of obese patients.
