Experts suggest rethinking recommendations for a low-carb diet, based on a recent study that tied low carbohydrate intake to increased risk of death from heart disease, cancer and all causes. NHANES included survey data from — and followed participants for an average of six years, while the pooled data had an average follow-up of 16 years. Authors note that in the NHANES analysis, the association between low-carb diets and mortality risk was strongest among non-obese participants. That means a low-carb diet could be more harmful in adults who are a healthy weight, especially over a long period of time. However, findings do add to concerns about the long-term effects of a low-carb diet on overall health. According to authors, many studies have linked low-carb diets to weight loss—which in general is beneficial to health and quality of life. However, studies have questioned the long-term safety of low-carb diets over an extended period of time. Experts worry about the impact of a low-carb diet after achieving weight loss. As a next step, authors encourage future research to explore the long-term health impact of low-carb diets and help inform future dietary recommendations. For Clinicians. Loading results

Low-carbohydrate diets for weight loss are receiving a lot of attention of late. Reasons for this interest include a plethora of low-carbohydrate diet books, the over-sensationalism of these diets in the media and by celebrities, and the promotion of these diets in fitness centres and health clubs. The re-emergence of low-carbohydrate diets into the spotlight has lead many people in the general public to question whether carbohydrates are inherently ‘bad’ and should be limited in the diet. Although low-carbohydrate diets were popular in the s they have resurged again yet little scientific fact into the true nature of how these diets work or, more importantly, any potential for serious long-term health risks in adopting this dieting practice appear to have reached the mainstream literature. Evidence abounds that low-carbohydrate diets present no significant advantage over more traditional energy-restricted, nutritionally balanced diets both in terms of weight loss and weight maintenance. Studies examining the efficacy of using low-carbohydrate diets for long-term weight loss are few in number, however few positive benefits exist to promote the adoption of carbohydrate restriction as a realistic, and more importantly, safe means of dieting. While short-term carbohydrate restriction over a period of a week can result in a significant loss of weight albeit mostly from water and glycogen stores, of serious concern is what potential exists for the following of this type of eating plan for longer periods of months to years. Complications such as heart arrhythmias, cardiac contractile function impairment, sudden death, osteoporosis, kidney damage, increased cancer risk, impairment of physical activity and lipid abnormalities can all be linked to long-term restriction of carbohydrates in the diet. The need to further explore and communicate the untoward side-effects of low-carbohydrate diets should be an important public health message from nutrition professionals.
