Diet Doctor Podcast #65 — Dr. Mariela Glandt

Dr. Mariela Glandt trained with the best experts to learn how to treat diabetes. But her biggest lesson came years after her training when she discovered low-carb diets. Now she sees more success with her diabetes patients than she ever thought possible.

But it isn’t without its challenges, especially in her homeland of Israel — the land of pita, fruit, and challah (a traditional Israeli bread). Dr. Glandt shares her experiences helping people get off diabetes medications and normalize their blood sugar. She also explains when it may be better for a patient to continue taking certain medicines.

Towards the end, we dig into the intersection of Covid-19 and metabolic health, including Dr. Glandt’s thoughts about what we can do to reduce our risk. She has so much knowledge and experience that you won’t want to miss this episode.

Thanks for reading,
Bret Scher, MD FACC
