Low Carb Listing Category: DOCTORS/NURSES
Dr Troy Stapleton, MBBS, FRANZCR, is an Australian radiologist whose advocacy of low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) comes from personal experience: He developed type 1 diabetes in 2012 at the age 41. He adopted a low-carbohydrate diet and follows the approach of Dr Richard Bernstein. That has allowed him to normalise his blood glucose on a reduced dose of insulin with minimal hypoglycaemia. Dr Stapleton is active in cycling, surfing and hiking. He says a low-carbohydrate diet has allowed him to continue with these activities without fear of hypoglycaemia.
