INTERVIEW An interview with Dr Vyvyane Loh, hosted by Susan Birch – The Health Detective

I had a great time chatting with the multi-talented Dr Vyvyane Loh. I really enjoyed our conversation delving into obesity and how she incorporates nutrition and functional medicine with traditional medicine to turn around her patient’s health. We covered a lot of important topics including how to manage metabolic syndrome, when does obesity become a health problem, thyroid function, sex hormones, nutrients, and many other subjects. I am looking forward to having her back on the podcast and setting up a Q and A to answer your questions.

Dr Loh has a wonderful YouTube channel with lots of videos on these topics that is worth checking out. It’s called vlmd rounds – you can find it here:
