IBM Support Group Meeting

Tuesday 29th September | 11:00am - 3:00pm

Rehab Plus: 54 Carrington Road, Point Chevailer - Auckland

Dr. Matthew Phillips (FRACP) will host the IBM Support Group Meeting presenting on “Impact of a Ketogenic Diet on Inclusion Body Myositis ”.

Matt is a full-time clinical and research neurologist at Waikato Hospital whose passion is to explore the potential feasibility, safety, and efficacy of metabolic therapies, particularly fasting and ketogenic diets, in creating alternate metabolic states that may improve not only the symptoms, but also function and quality of life, for people with a variety of neuromuscular disorders.

During this talk, Matt will briefly discuss the main problems that occur in the muscles of people with IBM, and how using a ketogenic diet can be used to tackle many of these problems at the same time.

We will also hear from Mrs Pushpa Deo about her experience who utilized a ketogenic diet to treat her IBM.

Tea, coffee and light refreshments are included
