“We’ve known for 150 years how to reverse type 2 diabetes with diet alone. So why do doctors still insist on drug therapy?”

The discovery of insulin in 1921 is considered one of the biggest medical breakthroughs in history. For those with type 1 diabetes, it’s life-saving, and more than 32 million people living with type 2 diabetes are treated with the “miracle” hormone.

But Gary Taubes, author of Rethinking Diabetes and possibly the most influential nutrition writer of our time, believes it’s this very treatment that is behind the epidemic described as a “slow motion disaster”.

So, how did we get here? Where did it all go wrong?

Our exclusive live event with Dr. Brukner and Gary Taubes was an enlightening discussion into the world of diabetes treatment, and unveiled the possibility that the solution might have been right under our noses all this time.

If you're living with or caring for someone with type 2 diabetes, or if you're a healthcare professional dedicated to treating people with diabetes, we urge you to catch the replay on this must-watch experience that will redefine your understanding of diabetes treatment.
