LCCP035: Dr. Jeff Stanley — How Ketogenics is Changing the Game of Treating Type 2 Diabetes

This  week,  I  welcome  Dr.  Jeff  Stanley  of  Virta  Health  back  to  the  podcast  to  discuss the  results  from  their  one-year  Cardiovascular  Risk  Factor  Assessment  clinical  trial.  The  results, which  are  published  in  the  peer-reviewed  publication  Cardiovascular  Diabetology,  include  some very  impressive  findings.  Findings that may just shake up conventional wisdom about a high fat diet. During  our  conversation,  we  discuss  the  details of the trial, and also explore practical implications of a ketogenic diet, intermittent  fasting,  macro  calculations,  and  beta-hydroxybutyrate  measurements. Dr Stanley and Virta health have already revolutionized the way we treat diabetes, and this latest trial only furthers that mission.


Key Takeaways:


[4:31] Virta Health's method is to safely and sustainably reverse type 2 diabetes.

[9:08] New data will soon be published by Virta.

[13:42] The guidelines and macro data Virta uses with patients.
