Ivan Saraiva, MD


I started learning about low-carb diet with dietdoctor.com several years ago by recommendation of a cardiologist friend. To stop fearing butter was the first step to open my mind. I not only helped myself but was able to treat patients in my primary care clinic. My current job is restricted to inpatient services, but I keep studying and teaching colleagues, learners, and patients on the principles of the low-carb approach to metabolic diseases.
