The Los Angeles Times (4/22, Brown, Times) reports in its "Booster Shots" blog that a "high-fat 'ketogenic' diet may reverse the kidney damage caused by diabetes, a study published online Wednesday by the journal PLoS One reports." Lead author Charles Mobbs, "a neuroscientist at the Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City, said that this study -- in which mice were fed a high-fat diet of 5% carbohydrate, 8% protein and a whopping 87% fat -- was the first to show that dietary intervention alone is enough to reverse kidney failure caused by diabetes." However, there is "a serious problem: Following a ketogenic diet is brutal."
