Thank you for joining us for another episode of the Low Carb MD Podcast. Dr. David Saenger is an ultra-marathon runner, advocate of the low-carb diet, and practitioner of general invasive cardiology. He started his undergraduate education at Harvard, finished pre-med at Columbia, went to Stanford Medical School, and did his internal medicine residency at Mt. Sinai where he later returned to do his cardiology fellowship.
In this conversation, Drs. Tro and David talk about how Dr. David, a New Yorker, found himself practicing medicine in Eugene, Oregon, how Dr. David found his way into medicine in the first place, how Dr. David incorporates diet and lifestyle into his practice, how Dr. David discovered authors like Gary Taubes even though he comes from a very traditional medical background, Nina Teicholz’s book, The Big Fat Surprise, the four largest employers of physicians, inspiring and motivating patients, dietary philosophy, what Dr. David eats in a day when he is training for a run versus what he eats when he is not training, supplementing with magnesium, how to safely and effectively de-prescribe, and the role of cardiovascular imaging in cardiac prevention.
