At this weekend’s Public Health Collaboration (PHC) conference, doctors will hear about the benefits of how a low carb diet can positively impact people with type 2 diabetes.
The fourth annual PHC conference will bring together world-class healthcare professionals for a two-day event addressing ways to implement healthy decisions for better public health. The PHC is a registered charity that recognises the benefits of eating low carb, real food diets for individuals as well as the wider health of nations.
The conference will take place on Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 May 2019 at the Royal College of General Practitioners in London. Tickets can still be purchased for the event.
Charlotte Summers, Chief Operations Officer at Diabetes Digital Media, will be presenting a talk entitled ‘Low Carb Program: Structured education and behaviour change platform for type 2 diabetes and prediabetes’.

The one-year outcomes from the Low Carb Program show that users reduce their HbA1c by 1.2% (13 mmol/mol), lose 7% of their body weight on average, and one in four even put type 2 diabetes into remission.
“The Low Carb Program has been empowering patients to place their type 2 diabetes into remission for over two years. We are proving over and over again that type 2 diabetes does not have to be a chronic or progressive disease,” said Ms Summers.
Other speakers at the event include Dr Aseem Malhotra, Prof Robert Lustig, Dr Zoe Harcombe PhD and Tom Watson MP. Moreover, Dr Ian Lake, a GP with type 1 diabetes, will discuss Diabetes Digital Media’s upcoming Type 1 Program and the efficacy of low carb diets for people with type 1 diabetes.
