    DR Nafeeza Mohd Ismail is a physician at the Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM)  Private Specialist Centre at Jalan Hospital in Malaysia. Malaysia has the highest rate of obesity in the Asia Pacific region. As well, 15% of the 20 million or so  adult population have diabetes. Dr Ismail says Malaysians are advised to follow broad-based hich-carb, low-fat  guidelines. Despite this, diabesity rates have increased. As the evidence shows the dietary guidelines provide misinformation, Dr Ismail and her team are committed to providing dietary advice that is low in carbohydrates with adequate healthy fats and  moderate protein. They will be starting dedicated clinics in August/September 2016.
