This week on The Doctor’s Farmacy I’m joined by Dr. Ethan Weiss who weighs in on the traditional keto diet and how we can all make it healthier with the right fats. We also talk about the impact these fats can have on cardiovascular function. We discuss the importance of fiber and how it can easily be incorporated into the keto diet, as well as when keto just doesn’t work for some people and why that might be.

Dr. Weiss is an Associate Professor of Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco, and a Principle Investigator in the Cardiovascular Research Institute (CVRI). Dr. Weiss’ clinical interests include prevention, lipids, and the emerging intersection of endocrinology and cardiology with a specific focus on pre-diabetes and type 2 diabetes as risk factors for coronary disease. His research is focused on the mechanisms of obesity, fatty liver disease, and diabetes. He has an active program in clinical nutrition exploring time-restricted eating. Dr. Weiss is also a co-founder of Keyto Inc, a San Francisco-based company aiming to enable the use of a heart-healthy ketogenic diet for weight loss.

In this episode, I’m also joined by Dr. Carrie Diulus. Dr. Diulus is an orthopedic spine surgeon, vice chief of the medical staff, and director of the Spine Wellness Center at the Crystal Clinic, in Akron, Ohio. Prior to that, she was both a spine surgeon for the Center for Spine Health at the Cleveland Clinic and also a medical director in their IT department. Dr. Diulus’ surgical practice focuses on minimally invasive spine surgery. Her clinical interest involves strategies for improving patients’ musculoskeletal health and surgical outcomes by improving metabolic health with dietary and exercise strategies. She has type 1 diabetes and has published and is involved in ongoing research at Boston Children’s on the use of a low carbohydrate diet in the management of type 1 diabetes.
