James Gauthier, MD, MPH


I encourage all my patients to live a low-carb lifestyle to prevent insulin resistance and the myriad of chronic medical problems that result from it. I routinely pass out the brochure “Low-carb for beginners” developed by dietdoctor.com which has the website listed on it. I routinely calculate HOMA-IR with fasting glucose and insulin levels. I have had a tremendous amount of success with reversing hyperinsulinemic states and weight loss in those patients who follow the low-carb lifestyle.
