Common Questions

Major health organizations provide nutritional guidelines for physicians and other health care providers. Clinicians are strongly encouraged to recommend balanced, healthful diets, including plenty of vegetables, fruits, legumes, and whole grains, and may wish to consult the specific dietary guidelines available from PCRM (www.pcrm.org), the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (www.nhlbi.nih.gov), or the American Diabetes Association (www.diabetes.org). Physicians and other health care practitioners who prescribe low-carbohydrate diets may be putting themselves at legal risk if their patients develop complications associated with those diets.

Consumers who believe that a high-protein diet contributed to their health problems may have legal recourse. In general, medical malpractice occurs when a physician breaches her or his duty to provide appropriate medical care and that breach results in harm to the patient. A determination that a person acted negligently would be made on the basis of state laws and the facts in the individual case. For more information about potential liability or legal recourse, please see a licensed attorney.
