PHC Annual Conference 2017 to feature speakers on fasting and low-carb dieting

The second Public Health Collaboration (PHC) Annual Conference has been announced for Saturday 17 June – Sunday 18 June, which will feature a variety of international speakers discussing prominent issues in diabetes care.
The PHC, launched in 2016, is a charity consisting of leading doctors looking to combat obesity and type 2 diabetes in the UK.
It was created to challenge and improve dietary guidelines in the UK. Last year, the PHC’s first report warned that current guidelines recommending people with and without diabetes to eat less fat are having “disastrous consequences”.
Instead they contend that it is excessive carbohydrate and sugar that leads to weight gain and increased prevalance of chronic health conditions.
This year’s conference at Manchester Metropolitan University Business School will run over two days and feature workshops that run together with the main speakers.
Some of the topics being discussed include fasting and low-carb dieting, which have featured prominently in recent diabetes research.
Charlotte Summers, Chief Operating Officer of Diabetes.co.uk, is one of the speakers at the event. She will be talking about the success of the Low Carb Program in helping people with type 2 diabetes to improve their health.
She said: “I’m so excited to present the astounding findings we’ve seen from the Low Carb Program, and to demonstrate how effective a low-carb diet can be in treating people with diabetes.
“We’ve seen remarkable results from almost 200,000 users who have been able to improve their blood glucose levels, lose weight, improve their mood and reduce their dependency on medication.
“Once again it’s an honour to support the PHC in their mission to improve the health of people with diabetes across the UK.”
Among the founding members of the PHC include Dr. David Cavan – author of Reverse Your Diabetes – leading low-carb specialist Dr. David Unwi, dietitian Dr. Trudi Deaki, and Dr. Rangan Chatterjee – known for his work on the BBC’s Doctor in the House.
Tickets to attend the conference are available here.
