Is a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet the Key to Diabetic Management?

Description

Host: Barnett Mennen, MD
Guest: Sarah Hallberg, MD

Carbohydrates are our main source of energy and provide important nutrients for good health. However, they are also the main culprit behind elevated blood sugar and are problematic for diabetic patients trying to control their blood sugar levels.

Host Dr. Barry Mennen sits down with Dr. Sarah Hallberg to talk about carbohydrate restriction as a key to successful weight loss programs. She prescribes that adherence to a low-carb, high-fat diet is vital to patients for controlling their diabetes, with the possibility of being able to come off medications over time.

Dr. Sarah Hallberg is the Medical Director at Virta Health and Founder of the Indiana University-Arnett Health Medical Weight Loss Program in Lafayette, Indiana.
