What Is Vegan Keto?

Vegan keto and a heart-healthy high-fat diet? These are phrases most people think of as contradictory, but in fact, they are health routines some people thrive off of.

This week on The Doctor’s Farmacy, I’m joined by Dr. Carrie Diulus who shares her own experience in successfully managing her type 1 diabetes with a plant-based vegan diet along with research and anecdotal evidence she’s seen for others along her journey.

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. Previously, 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.

In this episode, I’m also joined by Dr. Ethan Weiss. 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.
