Weight Reduction And Remission Of Type 2 Diabetes

Weight Reduction And Remission Of Type 2 Diabetes


In conversation with Mrs Arifa Muzaffar and Dr Anthony Leeds, Professor Roy Taylor of the University of Newcastle describes how people with type two diabetes can lose weight and achieve diabetes remission. Prof Taylor and Prof Lean from the University of Glasgow were joint principal investigators on the diabetes remission trial (DiRECT).

Dr Anthony Leeds said ‘A number of first-rate clinical trials and investigations of mechanism as to how weight loss leads to diabetes remission have been undertaken over a number of years, along with health economic analyses of the cost benefits of this intervention. Translation into practice is underway in several countries, notably in Scotland, England, Abu Dhabi and Qatar.’
