I am always interested in what Dr. Steve Freedland is working on. His study of the effects of a very low carb diet during ADT hasn't appeared in print yet, but the gist is in this interview at the AUA meeting this year:
& here is much the same info from a new interview in Urology Times:
The interesting thing is what didn't happen in the intervention arm:
"In the control group in our study, we saw that at 6 months they gained 1.3 kg, their insulin resistance went up 36%, and they added 11% new fat mass. They experienced the effects that hormones generally have."
"Compared to the control group, rather than going up 36%, insulin resistance went down 4% in the diet group. So we completely prevented insulin resistance from happening."
It's an extreme diet - but ADT is an extreme therapy.
