Hey folk. I have big news. I am moving up to the big league of the ketogenic world, Virta Health. In case you re unfamiliar with Virta let me introduce you: Founded in 2014 with the goal of reversing diabetes in 100 million people by 2025, Virta is the first clinically-proven treatment to safely and sustainably reverse type 2 diabetes. Traditional practice has been to manage diabetes as a chronic progressively worsening process. It is now proven that T2DM reversal is possible when carbohydrates are very restricted. In my office practice I have successfully reversed diabetes in many of my patients. Unfortunately many of my patients found it difficult to adopt a new way of eating simply because their doctor told them to do so. Virta is a comprehensive program with health coaches, doctors and high tech continuous monitoring, all of which makes it much more likely for people to succeed in diabetes reversal and weight loss with the Well Formulated Ketogenic Diet.
Sadly, an unavoidable and unfortunate down side to this move to Virta is that my in person presence at PMA medical specialist will come to an end. I truly value the relationships I have formed with my patients over the years, many of whom have followed me as I moved to different PMA branch offices over the years. I will miss you all.
Many of you come to see me because I am the only local clinician who is supportive and knowledgeable about LCHF, keto, carnivore and IF. I know, low carb savvy clinicians are hard to find. Fortunately, there is another low carb clinician already at PMA!! I am referring my #LCHF crowd to my colleague Kacie Labik PA-c who practices from the PMA Phoenixville office.
