Insulin Resistance, Is this the key to understanding chronic disease?

Inspired by the work of David Unwin in the U.K., 43 patients at the Taupo Medical Centre have reversed their diabetes or prediabetes.

Type 2 diabetes is no longer viewed as a chronic, progressive illness, slowly leading to dialysis and limb amputation, but a easily treated condition. In addition the community group Reverse T2 Diabetes is supporting community members to lose weight and reverse their diabetes.

Nutrition is on the tip of everyone’s tongue in Taupo. Results are even better with Maori. Similar groups are now being rolled out throughout the country.

Dr Davies will share his experience helping client’s put their diabetes into remission.
