Low-carb app for diabetes approved by NHS

Zooming in on a healthy recipe

The UK National Health Service (NHS) has approved an app with a low-carb diet program for type 2 diabetes. This is one more validation of the safety and effectiveness of low-carb diets for treating type 2 diabetes!

Diabetes.co.uk: Low Carb Program app approved by NHS Digital

As we have written earlier, type 2 diabetes rates in the UK are escalating quickly, and the NHS is looking for ways to reverse this trend. According to Diabetes.co.uk, the NHS-approved Low Carb Program app will provide people with type 2 diabetes with necessary tools to track weight and blood glucose levels. But the real focus is food:

It provides people with type 2 diabetes with the opportunity to make lifestyle changes, chiefly by eating a real-food diet, to help improve their health.

Diet Doctor collaborator Dr. David Unwin who helped develop the Low Carb Program App adds:

I reversed my diabetes on a low carb diet. I don’t get any money from inventing the app. I’m just happy to see patients stop their diabetes.

    This is the app that was approved by the NHS: https://www.lowcarbprogram.com/ It is available for both Android and iOS. Diet Doctor is only available for iOS, but they failed to provide the link for the app that the article was actually referring to, only their own. Shocking, I know.

    Correction: the link was provided following the first paragraph, but resembles an ad or clickbait so it is easy to scroll past. The article then transitions to an advert for the diet doctor app (complete with a "download now" button) which is not the app approved by NHS, but it appears to be if one fails to read carefully.

    The is an awesome amount on the internet about 'keto' add to this MyFitnessPal to note your fat, protein & carb intake..... Add to this a fitness tracker like a Garmin/Fitbit type device and you will be able to see exactly how you are doing.... It seems complicated and daunting at first but a few days of internet research will be worth it's weight in gold if you're looking to go the keto/lchf router.....good luck.

    Bit of a cheap article. Should have linked to the app you're talking about. Cheap shot at promoting your own app.

    The app that was approved by the NHS is https://www.lowcarbprogram.com/ available on Android and iOS. It’s shameless Diet Doctor is using this positive news to plug their own app.
  21. Jeremy
    Great step for the UK NHS. Please could you share a link to the app that was approved.
  22. Joan
