Mechanisms of action for the medium-chain triglyceride ketogenic diet in neurological and metabolic disorders

High-fat, low-carbohydrate diets, known as ketogenic diets, have been used as a non-pharmacological treatment for refractory epilepsy. A key mechanism of this treatment is thought to be the generation of ketones, which provide brain cells (neurons and astrocytes) with an energy source that is more efficient than glucose, resulting in beneficial downstream metabolic changes, such as increasing adenosine levels, which might […]

Outcome Age-Based Prediction of Successful Cognitive Aging by Total Cholesterol

Total cholesterol and cognition associations differ in studies at different outcome ages. Some associations of cholesterol with cognition diminish as outcome age increases. In the oldest-old, some relationships reverse from younger elderly samples. Studies seeking protection should focus on good cognition despite high risk. Some associations of high total cholesterol with dementia risk diminish as […]
