Effective Treatment of Type 2 Diabetes Using Plant-Based Nutrition

Michelle McMacken
MD, Veg MD

Research has shown that a plant-based diet can quickly improve type 2 diabetes necessitating rapid medication alterations.  A growing body of research is describing the biochemical benefits of a plant-based diet in suspending and reversing insulin resistance. The management of medications during a dietary transition can be challenging unless the healthcare provider is prepared and trained to understand the physiologic changes that transpire over days to weeks.  Dr. McMacken will review the current literature, describe the details of a dietary intervention for type 2 diabetes and help attendees to understand the safe management of medications.
