Stanford researchers review efficacy and safety of low-carbohydrate diets

eight loss (as exercise information was excluded from this analysis), the long-term effects of these diets and the effectiveness and safety of these diets for people over the age of 53.

Co-author Christopher Gardner, PhD, assistant professor of medicine with the Stanford Center for Research in Disease Prevention, agreed that more studies on low-carbohydrate diets are needed. "The team did a phenomenal job of synthesizing all that's out there, but there wasn't a lot of information from well-designed, randomized controlled trials to begin with," he said. "The obesity epidemic involves people having weight problems for years or decades, and we need long-term data on these diets' effectiveness and safety."

Bravata's Stanford collaborators include Gardner; Ingram Olkin, PhD; and Jane Huang, MD. Other collaborators include Dawn Bravata, MD; Harlan Krumholz, MD, SM; and Lisa Sanders, MD - all of Yale.
