Can low-carb nutrition prevent severe COVID related illnesses? We don't have data on it, but according to ICU physician Dr. Kyeremanteng, it is certainly worth discussing.

Dr. K sees nutrition as a powerful tool to prevent the most serious diseases that he regularly sees in the ICU. He brings his energy and passion to prevention, even while caring for critically ill patients.
He also has great tips for how low-carb patients in the hospital can communicate their nutrition preferences with their doctors.
Lastly, we discuss Dr. K's battle with racism and how he sees race impacting healthcare. His voice and his message show the critical importance of addressing racial disparities and helping everyone achieve better health.
