    Gary Fettke presents facts and figures on LCHF/Keto. Includes CV risk, A1c and all types of Diabetes including Pre Diabetes. About half an hour. It is the bare, basic facts, not techy or difficult to follow.

    You could try going directly to YouTube to view it. I had no problem with the sound or vision on it.

    Really good round up on the latest evidence, important information for everyone with diabetes. I think an orthopaedic surgeon's perspective is so valid given the consequences of poor control.

    It is just such a shame about the way that Dr. Fettke has been treated by the Health Authorities. Shame being the operative word here.

    It is not difficult to gather from Dr Fettke and Prof Tim Naokes litigious encounter with "nutritional" lobby groups who these lobby groups really represents...and shocking how deeply embedded food/pharma lobby groups are in the entire health education/provider ecosystem.

    Dr Fettke is from my neck of the woods so to speak in fact about 2 hours away in Hobart Tasmania. Why is he being stopped from educating people and does anyone know if he is still practicing ' actually i could google that. Would love to go see him i found that very interesting.

    He was tried by the Health Authorities and basically told to stop giving patients nutritional advice or risk being struck off. You can view many of his presentations on YouTube. His wife Belinda has started to do some videos, too, and they are really enlightening. Enjoy!

    Edited to add.

    Dr. Fettke is an orthopaedic surgeon.
