Empowering Patient-Doctor Communication

  • Today, I present a snippet from a talk delivered by Dr. Eric Westman during the Ketogenic Revolution for Lipedema & Lymphedema virtual event hosted by Lipedema Simplified from April 29 to May 1, 2022.
  • Dr. Westman, an Associate Professor of Medicine at Duke University, holds certifications in Obesity Medicine and Internal Medicine. He established the Duke Keto Medicine Clinic in 2006, drawing from his extensive clinical research on low-carbohydrate ketogenic diets. Additionally, he co-founded Adapt Your Life, a company focused on education and products rooted in low carbohydrate principles.
  • In this excerpt, Dr. Westman imparts valuable guidance on initiating constructive dialogues with healthcare providers who might lack substantial knowledge in nutrition, lipedema, or lymphedema, enabling patients to better advocate for their care.
