Vyvyane Loh, MD
Dr. Vyvyane Loh is board-certified in Obesity Medicine and Internal Medicine. She graduated from Boston University School of Medicine and trained at Newton-Wellesley Hospital where she also served as Chief Resident. Dr. Loh, started out in obesity practice and found herself taking patients off medications which was very different from what she had been taught in her training. She feels she was very lucky to get exposed to it early.
Down the road Dr. Loh measured her own A1c levels and found them to be high, around 6.4. Her doctor looked at her and seeing that she was not overweight, told her she could not explain it and told her not to worry about it. That really bugged Dr. Loh so she started digging into it more. Then her friend encouraged her to start the Atkins diet with her and she decided to try it. Literally 2 days after she started all her symptoms she had previously attributed to irritable bowl syndrome disappeared. She was flabbergasted and could not understand how she had not known about this and why she and her colleagues were not telling their patients about it. Dr. Loh has since reversed her own diabetes trend and is now committed to taking this to her patients and also in helping to reach the more impoverished communities who aren’t exposed to this information as easily.
