Can Alzheimer's be prevented with a ketogenic diet? Dr Matthew Phillips and Dr Peter Brukner live webinar
Defeat Diabetes

Duration: 47:40

September is World Alzheimer's Month and we're bringing awareness to this disease that affects half a million Australians. People with type 2 diabetes are more at risk of Alzheimer’s, and sadly the earlier you develop T2D, the greater your risk of developing the disease.

Join us as Defeat Diabetes founder Dr Peter Brukner chats to special guest (and lead researcher of the study) Dr Matthew Phillips, a clinical and research neurologist from Waikato Hospital in New Zealand.

The doctors will simplify the latest research on how ketogenic and low carb diets may help people living with Alzheimer’s lead active, fulfilling lives many years after diagnosis and perhaps even help prevent it in the first place.
