TEDxPurdue University and Diabetes
TEDx Purdue U: Diabetes
TEDx Purdue University speaker Sarah Hallberg argued that low-carb diets aren’t just for weight loss. She believes they can reverse Type 2 diabetes, a disease that affects about 10 percent of adults in the US. The former exercise physiologist presented her ideas in a video that has now been viewed more than 325,600 times online. Since her death last year, her family has created a legacy project to continue her work. It includes setting up a lecture course and podcast on T2D reversal.
TEDx Purdue U: Nutrition
In this TEDxPurdueU presentation, clinician Dr Sarah Hallberg starts a compelling conversation around diabetes and insulin resistance. She argues that nutritional change can wind back the symptoms of diabetes to a point where drug management is no longer necessary. Obviously this is not a cure but it is sensible medicine and could make a huge difference to those who struggle with the condition.
She also introduces the Nutrition and Exercise Clinical Research Center, which will offer public access to services including interview and health motivation resources for adults; metabolic research kitchen and ingestive behavior assessment area; and bone, muscle and body composition assessments. The facility will be led by Prof Wayne Campbell in the Department of Nutrition Science. The department currently has three distinguished professors and four university scholars, as well as offering a didactic program in dietetics, coordinated program in dieetics, food and nutrition in business and nutrition fitness and health.
