Dr Penny Figtree

MBBS (hons 1) Syd Uni, FRACGP

Medically supervised weight loss and diabetes management

Dr Figtree graduated from the University of Sydney in 1993 with first class honours.  After 20 years in general practice she has decided to focus on weight loss and diabetes.

This decision was made after seeing the power of a low carbohydrate diet to help people lose weight and for some to even reverse diabetes. A very low carbohydrate or ketogenic diet allows you to lose weight without hunger. Most type 2 diabetics can reduce their medications and even stop insulin using this approach. A doctor is needed to monitor this diet as it is powerful and many medications must be stopped ,even blood pressure medication. This diet is safe and incredibly effective with over 30 clinical trials showing its effectiveness superior to low fat diet and confirming its safety.
