Description:
Felix von Niemeyer (December 31, 1820 - March 14, 1871) was a German internist born in Magdeburg. He studied medicine at the University of Halle and in 1844 became a physician in Magdeburg. Later he was a professor of internal medicine at the University of Greifswald (from 1855), and at the University of Tübingen (from 1860). During the Franco-Prussian War he served as a medical consultant.

Niemeyer is largely remembered for his written works, in particular his Handbuch der praktischen Medizin (Textbook of Practical Medicine), which was a very popular medical book in Germany. He is also known for espousing a high-protein, low-carbohydrate diet that was in essence a modification of the popular "Banting diet", a diet endorsed by William Banting (1796–1878), an English undertaker.

In 1870, he was elected a foreign member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.
