She wasn't a member here but we relied often on her knowledge and her ability to impart it. Very often we recommend that new members of Diabetes Forum view Dr. Hallberg's TED talk about using ketogenic diets for diabetes. The video has had 8.6 million views and has introduced many people to the idea that diabetes can be better controlled or even put into remission by eating very low amounts of carbohydrates. Many of us are proof that Dr. Hallberg was right.

Dr. Hallberg was in her 40s and died of Stage 4 lung cancer even though she never smoked. She battled cancer for several years. She was a colleague and principal investigator at Virta Health; a retrospective on her impact there is here. I am thankful for her willingness to promote a medical opinion that sometimes is unpopular but is gaining scientific ground all the time.

I have watched several of her youTube videos and learned a lot even tho I eat a 95% WFPB diet but nothing I eat is refined or processed. I too was saddened to hear of her untimely death. I did not even know she had lung cancer until I read it by someone who commented about it on YouTube. May she RIP.
