Internist and Duke Lifestyle Medicine Clinic director Dr. Eric Westman is our special 2016 Metabolic Therapeutics Conference guest speaker featured in Episode 1170 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”
The research looking into the various health and metabolic effects of the low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat, ketogenic diet is gaining in momentum as the evidence continues to pile up in favor of this way of eating for a variety of reasons that go well beyond weight loss. The very pathophysiology of virtually every chronic disease is now forcing researchers to take a closer look at therapies such as nutritional ketosis as a viable option for healthcare providers to get their patients healthy again. The 1st Annual Conference on Nutritional Ketosis and Metabolic Therapeutics took place earlier this year in Tampa, Florida featuring the best of the best cutting-edge researchers and practitioners from around the world engaging in the science and application of low-carbohydrate and ketogenic diets for use in optimizing wellness, exercise performance, resilience, and more. These are exciting times and we are on the cusp of seeing some phenomenal breakthroughs coming in the next few years.
Listen in as you will hear various lectures from that conference on "The Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Show" podcast through early December to give you a taste of what is happening and what's to come. Today's lecture is from an internist and Duke Lifestyle Medicine Clinic director named Dr. Eric Westman who will be sharing his lecture entitled "LCHF Treatment of Diabetes."
