Our Advisory Board Member Dr. Richard K. Bernstein has courageously championed the low carb diet for 20 years despite the fact that many people thought he was “out to lunch.” Although his patients loved him for helping them control their high BGs and reverse their complications, other medical professionals often criticized his low carb methods.
Recently, Dr. Bernstein alerted Diabetes Health to a 2007 Spanish university study that reaches the same conclusions Dr. Bernstein did 20 years ago.
The study, “Arguments in Favor of Ketogenic Diets” by Joaquín Pérez-Guisado, PhD, a doctor on the medical faculty at the University of Córdoba, was first published in The Internet Journal of Nutrition and Wellness in 2007 (see the study here).
