The Empowering Neurologist – David Perlmutter, MD and Dr. Sarah Hallberg
Do medications “treat” type 2 diabetes? The answer is “no.” While there is a fairly robust list of drugs commonly prescribed by physicians for this situation, these pharmaceuticals tend to treat only the consequences of the disorder, like elevated blood sugar.
In this segment of The Empowering Neurologist, I have the great pleasure of interviewing one of the most forward thinking experts in diabetes in the country, Dr. Sarah Hallberg. This is her second time on the program, and with good reason. She and her team have just completed a study in which they demonstrate profound success in actually treating diabetes using a closely monitored ketogenic diet.
The results of this interventional trial are nothing short of astounding, as you will see. Keep in mind that it’s not just the fact that the intervention group adhered to the ketogenic diet, but the very close monitoring and supervision they received that must also have played a role in their results.
