Is Keto Safe for Diabetics? (Myths vs Facts) • Dr James McCarter

View descriptionShare

Adjunct Professor, Biotech Entrepreneur and former Head of Research at Virta Health, Dr James McCarter (MD, PhD), is today’s guest interview.

James is back with us today to debunk the top 12 common myths about the ketogenic diet for diabetics.

He uses data from peer reviewed studies as well as Virta’s own data from following Type 2 diabetics to explain why these claims against low carb or ketogenic diet are not true.

We then find out about what the reality is when it comes to sustainability, ketoacidosis, blood-sugar, cardiovascular disease and cholesterol, inflammation, thyroid hormones, as well as the effect on the kidneys, the liver, bones and muscle.

We also go into discussing the new 2019 ADA guidelines and the effects of diabetic medication.
