On Episode 1741 of the LLVLC Show, Dr. Ben Bikman stops by to talk with Jimmy about his latest Keto research on Alzheimer’s Disease.
“If someone has adopted a low-carb lifestyle and they have low insulin and their glucose levels are around 100, I say so what“.
Dr. Ben Bikman
Benjamin Bikman earned a Ph.D. in Bioenergetics at East Carolina University with a focus on the adaptations to metabolic surgeries in obesity. He continued to explore metabolic disorders, with a particular focus on insulin resistance, as a postdoctoral fellow with the Duke-National University of Singapore. As a professor at Brigham Young University and the director of its Diabetes Research Lab, Dr. Bikman has continued to study insulin, including its role as a regulator of human metabolism, as well as insulin’s relevance in chronic disease. In addition to his research and teaching, Dr. Bikman actively serves as a research mentor to undergraduate and graduate students. He and his students frequently present and publish their findings.
In this interview, Jimmy speaks with ketogenic diet researcher Dr. Ben Bikman (@benbikmanphd) who shares all about his latest findings on the relationship between nutrition and Alzheimer’s disease. Ben is the author of the book WHY WE GET SICK which is literally a primer on all things insulin resistance. This topic is discussed heavily in our conversation today since it’s a major factor in the development of Alzheimer’s disease.
