#11 Dr. Jeff Stanley

Internal medicine doctor at Virta Health

Virta Health wants to revolutionize the way we treat diabetes. Instead of ‘managing’ diabetes, they want to cure and reverse it using low-carb and high-tech. For decades, medicine has taught a management strategy of diabetes, rather than a cure-based approach, so this company is certainly disrupting the way we approach this costly chronic disease. Considering diabetes costs the United States $176 billion per year, any success they have will have a dramatic impact, not just on the health of the individual, but on society as a whole. Today, I am joined by Dr. Jeff Stanley, an internal medicine trained MD who works for Virta Health helping patients adopt a low-carbohydrate, ketogenic diet, and helping them safely treat their diabetes with low-carb and high-tech. With their proprietary technology, they are keeping their patients engaged on a regular basis and helping them improve their lifestyles, not just in the short-term, but but for the long-term to help cure their diabetes. Virta Health has published a 10-week trial with impressive results, and they have a 6- and 12-month data as well that we will hopefully learn more about. In this episode, you will hear all about how Virta works, you will learn some specifics about implementing a ketogenic diet, some of the benefits and pitfall of ketosis, the importance of individualize care, and so much more. I hope you enjoy this episode, and as always, we welcome your feedback. Thanks for listening!
