Take-home messages

  • Type 2 diabetes is a reversible condition and every patient deserves the opportunity to reverse or put it into remission.
  • LCHF/keto diets are a powerful tool that works. All patients should be educated on the advantages of these diets.
  • Patients on LCHF/keto diets who have had insulin will need to be monitored closely and continuous blood glucose monitoring is a great way to do this. Insulin is often stopped.
  • Offer a wrap-around service through health coaches and HIP’s.
  • Reversing diabetes = grateful and appreciative patients who are grateful to you. This improved job satisfaction greatly.
