  • Low Calorie Diets: The new treatment for type 2 diabetes

What would we give to have a new, non-pharmaceutical treatment for diabetes, leading to remission for some patients and reduction in the number of medications needed for others? We have this now in the form of Low Calorie Diets.

What are these? How do they work? How successful are they?

Join a panel of experts to discuss the low calorie diets being used in the new innovative NHS pilot. They will cover how they are run in the real world and cover some data from real world programmes so you can see how the theory has been working in practice.

Date: 13th October 1:00pm
