Key findingsThe ketogenic diet prevents mitochondrial health damage from consuming too much sugar by restricting carbohydrates and using fat and ketones as energy instead of glucose.Researchers found that too much glucose reduces the expression of genes involved in fatty acid development.In turn, reduced polyunsaturated fatty acids affect mitochondria thermoregulation functions. Quick summaryHyperglycemia is the technical term for high blood sugar and occurs in over 400 million people worldwide. It happens when the body lacks enough insulin and affects those who have diabetes. While health effects are well studied at tissue level, they are not as easily understood at the organelle level, where mitochondria are located.When your glucose metabolism is dysregulated, diseases such as metabolic syndrome and diabetes may occur. Hyperglycemia is known to eventually lead to insulin resistance since cells can’t take up glucose as directed any longer.  A recent study published in August 2021 explored the nature of cellular dysfunctions and mechanisms involved in glucose processes and its areas using an in vivo model (testing done on a living organism) and concluded that the ketogenic […]
