Event details

We are delighted to be welcoming Dr David Unwin from the Norwood NHS Surgery in Southampton to deliver this seminar.

Dr David Unwin works at the Norwood NHS Surgery in Southport near Liverpool, UK where he has helped care for a practice of 9700 people since 1986 as a family doctor. To date 129 of his patients with T2 diabetes have achieved drug-free remission. This gives a remission rate of 50% at 30 months duration of those choosing a lower carb diet. This equates to a remission rate of over 20% of the diabetic population of the entire practice. One of the best results for any clinic in the world.

For the past few years, he has been a UK Royal College of General Practitioners expert clinical advisor on diabetes. As part of this he has also published research into improving blood pressure, lipid profiles, renal function and liver function by reducing dietary carbohydrate, especially sugar. His teaspoon of sugar infographics have now been translated into eighteen languages.

Dr Unwin’s work has been covered by both BBC, C4 & C5 television, The New Scientist, The Times, The Daily Mail and The British Medical Journal. As @lowcarbGP he has over 90,000 followers on Twitter.

Our seminars are by invitation only, if you would like to attend please contact Amy.

This seminar will be hybrid.
