GP from Southport, UK who has been transforming the lives of his patients through a low carb diet, United Kingdom

Dr. David Unwin, MD, is an award-winning general practitioner (or family doctor) known for pioneering the low-carb approach in the UK. Through the years, Dr. Unwin has been highly recognized for his work within his field.

In 2015, Dr. Unwin was made a UK Royal College of General Practitioners expert clinical advisor in 2015 for his dedicated efforts within the areas of patient communication and type 2 diabetes.

Then, in 2016, Dr. Unwin won the prestigious NHS Innovator of the Year award for his work with diabetes patients.

From 2017 to 2024, his practice saved £68,000 on drugs for type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and other conditions by offering patients a dietary alternative to medications.

Also in 2018, Dr. Unwin was named the ninth most influential general practitioner in the UK by GP magazine Pulse. Moreover, he is a clinical expert in Diabetes at Fellowship of the UK Royal College of General Practitioners where he was elected as a Fellow back in 2008.

Dr. Unwin has also written several peer-reviewed papers to strengthen the science behind low-carb diets. His latest peer reviewed paper published in Jan 2023 is the most popular paper ever published by BMJ Nutrition.

By Feb 2024 his NHS practice near Liverpool has 137 patients who have achieved drug free T2diabetes remission, fully 20% of the diabetic population of the practice.

In collaboration with Dr. Unwin, we have created a free video course for doctors with practical tips about using low carb with patients. Dr. Unwin has also published a free and popular 20 minutes long Royal College of General Practice screencast about the management of type 2 diabetes in adults.

Additionally, Dr. Unwin is the medical advisor at the popular Low Carb Program and is doing his best to spread knowledge about low carb among doctors, dietitians, and nurses.

Dr. Unwin’s work has been covered by BBCNew ScientistDaily Mail,  and The British Medical Journal.
