Do you have a lot of your patients telling you about their success with Keto diets? It seems that for years we were concerned about these diabetes patients going into ketoacidosis if they tried a low carb, higher fat diet. Professionally we know there is a difference between ketosis and ketoacidosis and now it is important to make that distinction for our patients.

In the past weight loss and lower A1c values were thought to be the only benefits of a low carb, ketosis diet. However, this week our intern Maya Palmer, PharmD candidate from FAMU College of Pharmacy, has found excellent evidence that these types of diets can actually cause long term remission in type 2 diabetes. Check out her article to learn how often these patients become medication free.
