Type 2 Diabetes drug-free remission: Hope for primary care?

For the first 25 years of practice I didn’t see a single case of diabetes being reversed. Then a ‘eureka moment’ with a particular case changed everything. Five years later my 9,000 patient GP practice spends £38,000 less on drugs for diabetes than is average for my CCG. We see diabetes remission on a weekly basis by helping our patients cut sugar and refined carbs as featured by the BBC on ‘The truth About Carbs’ and as detailed in our recent RCGP eLearning module. I hope to share some of the practical ‘nuts and bolts’ of this approach with you all on the day.

Learning outcomes:

  • Type 2 diabetes is not necessarily a ‘chronic progressive, deteriorating condition.’
  • For most patients the cause is dietary not stress or lack of exercise.
  • Type 2 diabetes drug-free remission can be achieved in different ways.
  • Type 2 diabetes drug-free remission is a realistic goal for many patients.
  • Improving Type 2 diabetes with a low carb approach can also improve blood pressure, lipid profiles and liver function.
