How New Research Hopes To One Day Manage Type 2 Diabetes Without Medication

An experimental treatment for Type 2 diabetes, which aims to allow patients to manage their disease without taking medication, has entered its third round of clinical trials at St Joseph's Healthcare London. It means the program will be accepting new patients for the third time since it began in 2015. Doctor Irene Hramiak is an endocrinologist at St Joseph's Healthcare London and a researcher with the Lawson Research Institute who has been working on the exploratory treatment since the beginning. What the researchers are saying Under normal circumstances, Type 2 diabetes is treated with insulin and doctors will add other drugs as the disease progresses and the symptoms worsen.

    Thank you anyway
