Jay Wortman

DIABETES is chronic, irreversible and incurable, right? It means you have  to take drugs for the rest of your life to manage it, right? Wrong. Canadian physician Dr Jay Wortman will tell you differently.

Wortman is clinical assistant professor at the University of British Columbia’s faculty of medicine. He has personal experience with type 2 diabetes.

He developed the condition 13 years ago. Wortman was about to go the orthodox route but first cut all carbs (sugars and starches) from his diet.  Results were amazing. He has since done extensive research on traditional diets for obesity and type 2 diabetes. It is documented on the hit CBC documentary, My Big Fat Diet (to view it on YouTube, scroll below).

Here’s his personal story in a summary of his presentation to the low-carb, high-fat summit in Cape Town in February 2015. – Marika Sboros
