Dr David Unwin

Dr David Unwin, FRCGP, is a GP at the Norwood Surgery in Southport near Liverpool, UK where he has worked since 1986 as a family doctor. For the past few years he has been a Royal College of General Practitioners expert clinical advisor on diabetes.  As a result of his interests in both better communication with patients and Type 2 diabetes, he was made Royal College of General Practice National Champion for Collaborative Care and Support Planning in Obesity & Diabetes in 2015.

For the last few years Dr Unwin has been an ambassador for The All-Party Parliamentary group on diabetes, where he champions the idea of putting patients’ hopes and concerns central to their conversations with healthcare professionals.   

His work has been covered by C4 and C5 television, The New ScientistThe TimesThe BMJ and BBC 1 (“The Truth About Carbs” – viewed by 3.7 million people) and Radio 4 (The Food Program). Most recently, The Daily Mail has been serialising The Diabetes Weight Loss Cookbook by the award-winning cookery writer and celebrity chef combo Katie and Giancarlo Caldesi, with a foreword by Dr Unwin. Giancarlo was diagnosed with diabetes in 2012 but lost three stone and has gone into remission after changing to a gluten-free, low-carb diet inspired by nutritional therapist Jenny Phillips (their co-author). The series features Dr Unwin and several more success stories from his practice.

In 2016 he was the proud National winner of the NHS Innovator of the Year Award for published research into lifestyle changes: working with patients’ personal health goals and helping them understand how starchy carbs digest down into surprising amounts of glucose. For example, a 150-gram bowl of rice is the same as TEN teaspoons of table sugar. Cutting sugar and starchy carbs are a viable alternative to lifelong drug therapy in type 2 diabetes, with weight loss as a bonus –so that his GP practice spends £42,000 per year less than expected on drugs for diabetes, while to date 57 of his patients have achieved drug-free remission of their Type 2 diabetes.
