Now, Dr. Sanghani has made it her mission to get her patients off those medications, and instead use lifestyle therapies, including low-carb diets, to help them transform their health.
But as a doctor in Mumbai, this comes with its own set of challenges. The Indian culture is not very accepting of a moderate protein, low-carb diet, and recommending meat presents a particular challenge for some patients.
Despite these hurdles, Dr. Sanghani presses onward. She’s a pioneer of low-carb lifestyles in her country.
It’s easy to cheer for her and wish her success on her journey with her patients.
