High-fat diet may help reverse kidney damage

A "ketogenic diet" could reverse the kidney damage caused by diabetes, a study published online Wednesday by the journal PloS One, reported The Bellingham Herald.

At the Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City a neuroscientist, Charles Mobbs, first did a study using mice. He found that dietary intervention alone is enough over an eight week span, BBC News said.

This diet of 87 percent fat is brutal and recommended only for those who are desperate, The Bellingham Herald said.

It is questionable whether the diet used would be sustainable for humans until clinical trials are performed, BBC News said.
