The Intensive Dietary Management (IDM) Program was developed by Dr. Jason Fung and is based in Toronto, Canada. The program focuses on treating our generation’s great epidemic – metabolic syndrome. This is a spectrum of disease including obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, fatty liver, Alzheimer’s disease and cancer. Diabetes puts people further at risk for heart disease, stroke, peripheral vascular disease (PVD) including amputation, blindness, kidney disease and more.
