Obesity has been labelled “the scourge of the 21st Century” Whilst poor diet and lifestyle choices have long been identified as the only cause of obesity, emerging evidence identifies the role of epigenetics in developing obesity and subsequent type 2 diabetes (T2D).This session will discuss the connection between obesity and diabetes and the impact of excess weight on glycaemic control. Delegates will be equipped with practical knowledge and tips for effective weight loss strategies and their impact on glycaemic control on T2D patients.
