The benefits of the low carb diet among those with diabetes will be showcased at a healthcare professional conference this weekend.

One of the founders of Diabetes Digital Media’s award-winning Low Carb Program will host a dedicated presentation at the Public Health Collaboration Annual Conference.

Chief Operations Officer Charlotte Summers will deliver ‘Low Carb Program: Structured education and behaviour change platform for type 2 diabetes and prediabetes’, to delegates at the event, which will take place at the Royal College of Practitioners in London on Saturday, May 11 and Sunday, May 12.

So far, more than 400,000 people have joined the Low Carb Program, which has “redefined metabolic health”.

A range of other topics will also be discussed at the two day event which will see Dr Aseem Malhotra, a former clinical associate to the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges and Honorary Consultant Cardiologist at Frimley Park Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, open the conference with a speech entitled Evidence Based Medicine Has Been Hijacked.

Professor Robert Lustig, an American pedieatric endocrinologist and Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Endocrinology at the University of California, San Francisco, will debate corporate wealth versus public health and Dr David Unwin has been lined up to deliver a talk about whether we are blaming salt for sugar damage.

The Public Health Collaboration is a registered charity and was developed to inform and implement healthy decisions for better public health.

The organisation also publishes evidence-based reports on the most pressing public health issues alongside coordinated campaigns and implementing initiatives for improving public health.
