Dr. Benjamin Bikman – Insulin vs. Ketones – The Battle for Brown Fat

Here’s our second release from Low Carb Breckenridge 2017 conference. This is an intriguing presentation by Dr. Ben Bikman on the benefits of brown fat and the unique role that ketones play in determining energy usage, storage and wastage.

Dr. Benjamin Bikman earned his Ph.D. in Bioenergetics and was a postdoctoral fellow with the Duke-National University of Singapore in metabolic disorders. He is currently a professor of pathophysiology and a biomedical scientist at Brigham Young University in Utah.

Dr. Bikman’s professional focus as a scientist and professor is to better understand chronic modern-day diseases, with a special emphasis on the origins and consequences of obesity and diabetes, with an increasing scrutiny of the pathogenicity of insulin and insulin resistance. He frequently publishes his research in peer-reviewed journals and presents at international science meetings.

Dr. Bikman has long been an advocate of a ketogenic diet in light of the considerable evidence supporting its use as a therapy for reversing insulin resistance. His website InsulinIQ.com promotes dietary clarity, healing, and freedom through evidence-based science about insulin resistance. Employing cell-autonomous to whole-body systems, Dr. Bikman’s recent efforts have focused on exploring the intimate associations between the metabolic and immune systems.

Dr. Bikman has asked us not to share his presentation slides at this time in consideration of his unpublished data.
