Dr David Cavan
Independent Consultant & Author
Dr David Cavan is one of the UK’s leading experts on diabetes self-management. He worked for 17 years as a consultant at the Bournemouth Diabetes and Endocrine Centre. Around ten years ago he began to explore the role of diet in type 2 diabetes and formulated his thinking that a low carbohydrate diet could be beneficial in type 2 diabetes, and also in type 1 diabetes.
He published ‘Reverse your diabetes: the step by step plan to take control of type 2 diabetes’ in 2014, and has just published ‘Take control of type 1 diabetes’, both books combining his expertise in self-management and his experience in advising low carbohydrate diets. He will be publishing ‘The low-carb diabetes cookbook’ in November 2018.
