Diet Doctor Podcast #54 — Dr. Roshani Sanghani

197 views Add as favorite
Dr. Sanghani spent years training as a physician in endocrinology and diabetology. She knows everything about the expensive medications used to treat type 2 diabetes.

Now, Dr. Sanghani has made it her mission to get her patients off those medications, and instead use lifestyle therapies, including low-carb diets, to help them transform their health.

But as a doctor in Mumbai, this comes with its own set of challenges. The Indian culture is not very accepting of a moderate protein, low-carb diet, and recommending meat presents a particular challenge for some patients.

Despite these hurdles, Dr. Sanghani presses onward. She’s a pioneer of low-carb lifestyles in her country.

It’s easy to cheer for her and wish her success on her journey with her patients.

Thanks for reading,
Bret Scher, MD FACC
