Diabetes remission is still a new concept for many—but Dr Peter Brukner wants to change that.

After learning he had fatty liver disease a decade ago, sports medicine specialist Dr Peter Brukner transformed his health with a low carbohydrate diet. Since then, he’s become a vocal proponent for the benefits of people with type 2 diabetes adopting a low carb diet.

“There’s a lot of evidence now out there that a low carbohydrate diet is effective in the management of type 2 diabetes and yet, amazingly the recommended diet is still a high carbohydrate diet… we’re still so obsessed with this fat business,” Dr Brukner said on a recent Healthed podcast.

Last year Diabetes Australia quietly released a position statement which asserted that while type 2 diabetes has historically been understood as a progressive condition, “several recent studies have challenged that view. We now understand that, in some cases, progression can be stopped or slowed.”
