#170 Reverse Diabetes with Dr David Unwin

The Doctor's Kitchen Podcast

Dr David Unwin is on the podcast with Sakina today. Many of you will recognise him as the GP from the Norwood Surgery in Southport, who is a strong advocate of lifestyle medicine and a low carb diet. To date 110 of his patients have achieved drug free remission of their T2 Diabetes. He is the RCGP National Champion for Collaborative Care and Support Planning in Obesity and Diabetes and a RCGP Clinical Expert in Diabetes. His work on diabetes has been published in multiple journals and it is pretty impressive. But Dr Unwin’s work is unconventional and doesn’t come without criticism from many academics who fear that a low carb strategy is not an appropriate diet longterm.What I like about Unwins approach is the simplicity of it and how achievable it has proven to be for many of his patients. I also believe he genuinely cares about this huge problem.What I feel this conversation lacks is a deep dive into mechanisms behind low carb diets, the applicability of it to the wider population, the pitfalls and where people can slip up. For example I know many patients who start a low carb approach on a Monday and fall back to high sugar consumption later in the week which is a dangerous combination of high fat, high sugar and is essentially a standard American diet.We’ll have to get Dr Unwin back on the pod at some point in the future but for now I’m sure you’ll enjoy listening to him talk about how he started getting interested in nutritional interventions and how we could start using them today.🎬 Watch the podcast on YouTube here📱 Download The Doctor’s Kitchen app for freeYou can download The Doctor’s Kitchen app for free to get access to all of our recipes, with specific suggestions tailored to your health needs and new recipes added every month.

How to talk with a patient - Dr David Unwin Highlight Show 🎧

UK Low Carb

I have gone back into the UK Low Carb archives to dig up some gems from the last two years of the show. Today I'm talking to Dr David Unwin who shares with me in a short role-play, how he  would talk to a patient who has just been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. It's such a wonderful resource and a particular highlight of that show which has now been downloaded thousands or times. First broadcast 21st August 2020 (episode #024) THIS IS NOT MEDICAL ADVICE, IF YOU REQUIRE SUCH ADVICE THEN PLEASE CONTACT YOUR OWN GP

#56 Dr David Unwin - Beating Type 2 Diabetes With A Low Carb Diet

The Functional Health Podcast

Dr David Unwin FRCGP works at the Norwood NHS Surgery in Southport near Liverpool, UK where he has cared for the same population since 1986 as a family doctor. To date 105/206 of his patients with T2 diabetes have achieved drug-free remission. This gives a remission rate of 50% at 30 months duration of a lower carb diet, one of the best results for any clinic in the world! I had the pleasure of meeting David at the IHCAN Summit in 2021 where he blew me away with his impressive results in not only type 2 diabetes but also weight loss and blood pressure.  In this fascinating conversation, we discuss: Low carb diets in reversing type 2 diabetes Benefits of low carb for cholesterol and triglycerides Low carb diets for weight loss Addictive properties of wheat and dairy For the past few years, David has been a UK Royal College of General Practitioners expert clinical advisor on diabetes.  As a result of his interests in both better communication with patients and type 2 diabetes he was made Royal College of General Practice National Champion for Collaborative Care and Support Planning in Obesity & Diabetes in 2015.

Episode 18 : Dr David Unwin - Reversing Diabetes For Fun, Trolling, Combating The Naysayers And How Working For Free Conquers All

All About Doctors Radio

Episode 23 concludes the conversation with the powerful and fearless Dr David Unwin, as this family GP uncovers the self-doubt and self-criticism that characterised those early days in 2012 whilst consistently reversing type 2 diabetes with low carbohydrate eating, and why the recipes suggested by him and his consultant psychologist wife Jen required a large healthy slice of tenacity to combat the naysayers. It certainly wasn't all plain-sailing in those early days, and David talks about needing to persuade and convince his partners at his practice, who were at the time making things fairly uncomfortable, but perhaps not as much as the sheer aggression and barbarity he received from so-called colleagues in the hinterland of medicine. We touch on trolling, hate mail and why just like why perhaps love conquers all….so does working for free conquers all, and why this shift in his thinking provided the dynamite to detonate a cascade of impactful events that led to publication of groundbreaking evidence of type 2 diabetes reversal. Although working for free, David talks how paradoxically this gave him wealth without the status of any monetary value, and the fun this brought him, which has helped him overcome the self doubt and a growing, insidious, pervasive feeling that he may have actually been wrong until the age of 55.  The episode draws significant emotion from this wonderful man, and David talks about a world he once knew without obesity and type 2 diabetes, and why it will always be the inequalities of healthcare that keep him awake at night. Lastly, for me, personally, my final resonating message in my mind once the microphone was turned off was David's call to action and a finger firmly pointed at my generation, and those coming after me, and in fact all or our colleagues in the world. Now is our time to stand up and be counted, have you the determination to be a hero or heroine and save a life just like David? Or you can wuss out and stay silent. As in the Pink Floyd song , did you exchange a walk on part in a war  for a lead role in a cage…..?
