CHICAGO — The growing abundance of technology options for better diabetes management and the trend away from HbA1c as the only evaluation metric for the condition are important parallel phenomena, according to a speaker at the Cardiometabolic Health Congress.
Anne Peters, MD, director of USC clinical diabetes programs and professor of clinical medicine at the Keck School of Medicine at the University of Southern California, said during a presentation that health care providers must not only acknowledge but seek to understand these trends in order to help improve diabetes care.
Anupam Ghose, a physician by training, was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) in 2017. After the diagnosis of T2DM, he followed a low carbohydrate high fat diet and reversed his T2DM within a year. Now he has one main goal in life and that is to make people understand that the conventional method of treating T2DM is not beneficial. Type 2 diabetes is reversible and the best way to reverse T2DM is through diet and lifestyle modifications. He now decided to help people with type 2 diabetes by offering online coaching to reverse their diabetes.
