Doc Talk #30 – Diabetes

 

 

Jamieson and Dr Dan discussed insulin, diabetes, obesity and lifestyle. We talked about the difference between type 1 and type 2 diabetes.

Dr Dan talked about his only ever patient who managed to reverse his type 2 diabetes (and he looks after about 2,000 patients!)

If you are told you are pre-diabetic or diabetic, you’ve got a choice to make. The choice is to go down the path of ever more medications, or do you want to do down the path of … making some really substantial changes to your lifestyle?
