Dr. Sarah Hallberg: Can a ketogenic diet improve diabetic neuropathy?

– Do you have any evidence
of neuropathy improving
with diabetes reversal?
– Well, we see this anecdotally
often in the clinic,
and patients will report an
improvement, but can I claim
that this is absolutely
a treatment for this?
No, because once again we don’t
have rigorous data on this.
So it’s one of those other
situations where I say look,
this is probably good for
a lot of things in each
individual case that we have good data on.
Try it out, and if the
neuropathy is improving for you,
wonderful.
You don’t have to wait for
the rigorous clinical data,
but to be able to say to the
masses you should do this
for that specific treatment,
we have to wait for the data.
It’s really important to
say that we as a company,
the Virta treatment is
being driven by data.
So we are continuously getting
more data, but what we are
doing we are only gonna be
promoting things that we know
are truly evidence based.
And like I said, there may
be plenty of good evidence
based reasons to try the Virta treatment,
and for some people that may
also improve their neuropathy,
which is fantastic.
