Type 2 diabetes: Now understandable all the way to remission of Type 2

16 Nov 2022
Keynote Theatre

Type 2 diabetes has long been regard as complex and heterogenous. It is now possible to explain this condition as a simple effect of having a little more fat in the body than an individual can tolerate - over the Personal Fat Threshold. With this simple understanding, the current national type 2 diabetes remission programme has been launched by the NHS.

  • Understanding why type 2 diabetes is a simple condition
  • Understanding why and how the underlying processes can be reversed to normal
  • Understanding the Personal Fat Threshold concept as a practical clinical tool
  • Understanding why type 2 diabetes has nothing to do with obesity for the individual - and why there should be freedom from related stigma
